In a crushing blow to the daytime soap genre, ABC announced Thursday it will yank "All My Children" and "One Life to Life" off the air and replace them with two lifestyle shows.
Here's hoping Susan Lucci's character goes out bravely in a hail of bullets.
"AMC" will end in September, followed by "OLTL" in January, to make way for "The Chew" and "The Revolution." ABC said "these new shows expand ABC Daytime's focus to include more programming that is informative and authentic and centers on transformation, food and lifestyle -- cornerstones of programming that resonates with daytime viewers as evidenced by the success of 'The View.' "
In other words, stay-at-home parents have better things to do.
"General Hospital," the third most-watched soap opera in daytime, will not be affected by the changes.
"One Life to Live" has been on the air 43 years. "All My Children" has run for 41 years and was best known for beloved villain Erica Kane, played by Lucci.
Well from where I am standing, no one forced you to come to this board and post. Apparently you feel the need to troll or you are a soap addict.
If you read the article (interesting), it tells you that over 2.5 million per day watches that stuff. So it does mean something to some people, and apparently it means something to you since you felt the need to post here.
