Say it ain’t so! ABC has canceled iconic soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live.

ABC has canceled two of its longest-running programs, daytime soap operas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.”

The network announced Thursday that the two soap operas would end, with “All My Children” going off the air in September and “One Life to Live” going off the air in January.

In their place, a Mario Batali-hosted food show called “The Chew” will premiere in September, and a health/lifestyle transformation show tentatively called “The Revolution” will premiere in January.

“General Hospital” will remain on the network.

“All My Children” has been the subject of cancellation rumors of late, with Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva reporting last month that the show might be replaced by a talk show.

“While we are excited about our new shows and the shift in our business, I can’t help but recognize how bittersweet the change is,” Brian Frons, ABC’s daytime department president , said in an announcement. “We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming these days. They are telling us there is room for informative, authentic and fun shows that are relatable, offer a wide variety of opinions and focus on ‘real life’ takeaways.”

The first of those new shows to premiere, “The Chew,” will be hosted by Batali, “What Not To Wear” host Clinton Kelly, “Top Chef” alumna Carla Hall, restaurateur Michael Symon and “Dorm Room Diet” author Daphne Oz.

I’m at a loss for words to think what will become of Erica Kane!  I have been an AMC and OLTL fan since I was a little girl watching “the stories” with my grandma.  I didn’t always understand what was going on but the glamour, drama and intrigue definitely translated 100%

The following clips of Jenny Gardner’s death on AMC are etched in my brain… 

I was in South Carolina watching the show with my cousins when it happened and we were all screaming and upset and yelling! My grandma ran into the living room thinking one of us was injured.  We told her that Jenny died and she was so mad at us for being silly!

RIP AMC & OLTL… Thanks for the memories.

XOXO,

Mia

    I feel that there is a death in my family. I have watch All My Children and One Life to Live so long that they are a part of my family. Please DO NOT take them off the air. I will not and nor do I wan’t them to be replaced by a talk show or a show telling us how and what to eat. I am so angry you the thought that I will not watch ABC at the time of replacement. I already refuse to watch ABC from 9am until 11 am and it is questionable about the view because they are getting so argumentive and talking all at once I turn the channel. Don’t take the best shows that make millions of women happy in the afternoon. PLEASE DON’T DO IT!!!!!!

  2. Well, Mia, you have to understand. The ratings are not as hot as they used to be. Yes it’s unfortunate but it is what it is. I’m sorry for your loss. I have posted a new blog on this on my website and I would much like your feedback!!
