All My Children and One Life To Live Canceled!

April 14, 2011

It is official ABC has canceled both All My Children and One Life To Live in what I call a really bad move! If that isn’t bad enough just wait until you hear what is replacing the iconic soap operas with, nothing I will watch that is for sure.

Susan LucciROBERT WOODS 1 2

Turns out those pesky rumors a few weeks ago that ABC was canceling AMC and OLTL were not rumors but fact. The announcement came down today that All My Children will air its last episode in September and One Life To Live will air its last episode in January 2012. Here is the kicker they gave some lame excuse about viewership changing blah blah blah. They are replacing these shows with The Chew some show that will focus on food and The Revolution which will focus on health. You can get full descriptions at but I call them crappy talk or reality shows that are cheaper to make then beloved daytime soap operas. The whole statement is a bunch of you know what in my book.

I am still in shock that two more shows are going off the air. No more Susan Lucci, or Robert S. Woods in my daily TV routine. It is really sad, especially because as I write this I am listening to Susan on The Nate Berkus show. This just goes to show that soaps are dying and it is really heartbreaking. Now there are merely four soap operas left with ABC and NBC only having one show each. I realize not everyone is as addicted to these shows as I am up but there are plenty of us out there who still love our soaps, clearly we don’t count to the powers that be at ABC.

I could go on and on about how fuming I am but I am not the only one who has an opinion. So my friends let me know your thoughts about the fact that very soon we will say good-bye to Erica Kane and Bo Buchanan!

    I am in shock !! I have been watching these since the late 70’s! When I worked I recorded them. For health reasons I have been home for the past 7 1/2 years. These shows are my escape from my pain, they keep my mind a few hours a day from worrying about my daughter in Afganastan right now. I can say the shows there planning to replace them with will FLOP!!!! it’s going to pull viewers to watch Days of our Lives if it is in a time zone ( which for me it is) of One life to live, will change the channel. This is a stupid move. What is it going to take for them to change there minds? They can’t wind up all the storylines without us just going but what happened to? BIG MISTAKE ABC!!!!!!!

    Big MISTAKE ABC,,,who the hell is gonna watch these stupid shows you are replacing one life and all my children with. I have been watching these shows for years and will NOT watch the new stupid food and health show. I guess ABC could care less about loyal fans.

    I can not believe they are cancelling these shows. They just moved all the crew from All My Children to L.A.I am sure this caused a lot of disruption to their personal lives and now they cancel them! How unfair to them!I love this show and tape it everyday.This is unfair to the fans also. Who need another talk or food show.

    Wow! This is such horrible news! I have been watching these shows since I was 5! I think it is a terrible mistake for them to take these shows off of the air. First of all, the shows they plan on replacing them with sound AWFUL! I can tell you that I will definitely not watch them. There are already enough reality shows centered on health and food. If I wanted to watch something like that I would watch the Food Network or something. I want to see my “old friends” on the soaps each day and see what they are up to. Another thing, shame on ABC for making all of the actors on AMC move out to California and up root their lives only to cancel the show. That just shows how heartless they truly are. Viewers have been watching these shows for years even when writing has been terrible. Maybe ratings would go up if you actually hired writers who weren’t so content on writing garbage and ruining the show. These writers strayed so much from the personalities of some of these characters and have given us some of the worst plots in years! Even so I still faithfully watched. The story lines have been getting better. Shame on you ABC you should listen to your viewers comments regarding plots to help your shows. Instead you cancel them to put on shows that no one will watch. I want to know what people you actually surveyed said they would watch this junk! We all know we need to eat healthier and exercise. Do we really need another show to remind us of this? Needless to say I will only be watching ABC from now on to see General Hospital, after that it is on to some other channel that actually has some good programming. I stopped watching Channel 8’s News when they canned everyone and I will do the same for the rest of this channel when they get rid of the soaps!
