The Edge of Night (the working title of the show was The Edge of Darkness) premiered on April 2, 1956 as one of the first two half-hour soaps on television -- the other being As The World Turns (fifteen-minute-long shows had been the standard to that point). Both shows were aired on CBS and sponsored by Procter and Gamble . The show was originally conceived as the daytime version of Perry Mason , which was popular in novel and radio formats at the time. Mason's creator Erle Stanley Gardner was to create and write the show, but a last-minute tiff between him and the CBS network caused Gardner to pull his support from the idea. CBS insisted that Mason be given a love interest to placate daytime soap opera audiences, but Gardner flatly refused to take Mason in that direction. Gardner would eventually patch up his differences with CBS and Perry Mason would debut in prime time in 1957.
In later years, the jazzier Los Angeles skyline replaced that of Cincinnati . (according to the website, The Edge of Night Homepage, the city of Monticello had grown from an average sized city to the size of a major metropolitan area) The skyline was eventually eliminated in the final two years of the show, as was the word, "the". The title was then called "Edge of Night" for the final years of the show.
The Edge of Night played on more artistic levels than probably any other soap of its time. It was unique among daytime soap operas in that it focused on crime , rather than domestic and romantic matters. The police , district attorneys and medical examiners of fictional Monticello, USA, dealt with a steady onslaught of gangsters , drug dealers, blackmailers, cultists , international spies , corrupt politicians , psychopaths and murderous debutantes while coping with more usual soap opera problems such as courtship, marriage , divorce , child custody battles and amnesia . The show's particular focus on crime was recognized in 1980, when, in honor of its 25 years on the air, The Edge of Night was given a Special Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America . It also must be stated that Edge had stronger and more believable male characters than most soaps, and included genuine humor in its scripts to balance the heaviness of the storylines.
