Trivia: Search For Tomorrow

  • Channel Hop: Moved from CBS to NBC after the former network cancelled the show in 1982. Search was only the second (of three) soaps to change networks; The Edge of Night, a sister show (both shows were produced by Proctor and Gamble Productions) was the first.
  • The Character Died with Him: When Melba Rae (Marge Bergman) died in 1971, her character died as well rather than being recast.
  • Missing Episode: Almost the entirety of the CBS run seems to be lost, although random episodes exist as kinescopes or home recordings.
  • The Other Darrin: Like most soaps, many characters were recast over the years.
    • Averted, though, in the case of the two long-running characters - Jo was played for the entire run by Mary Stuart, and Stu Bergman was played by Larry Haynes until the end.
