'All My Children,'

'One Life to Live'


4/14/2011 3:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's official -- the soap opera era is officially DEAD ... now that ABC has announced they have cancelled "All My Children" and "One Life to Live."

"All My Children" has been on the air since 1970 ... and "One Life to Live" debuted in 1968.

The only soap remaining on ABC is "General Hospital."

ABC released a statement saying, "Guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want and the changing viewing patterns of the audience, ABC is evolving the face of daytime television with the launch of two new shows."

The replacement shows will focus on health and food.

Shevonne -- our resident soap opera junkie -- is literally crying in the back of our office right now.

Maybe all the Unemployed these days just don't want to watch Soaps on TV these days!!! I won't miss them, I've never watched them. A lot of Stars started out on Soaps though.

I stopped watching soaps about 20 years ago when I graduated high school but this story still makes me a little sad. They were such a staple on TV, as cheesy as they were :). Goodbye daytime soaps.

Are you kidding me new shows on food and health? I do not waatch soap operas any more due to scheduling but health and food shows would definitely put me to sleep. We are being bombarded with shows to make us healthier and some people just like to have a little fantasy shows ie soaps, dramas. Bad choice ABC I see this as your journey to last place in the dying network channels.

Translation: ANOTHER talk show. The only reasons the shows were failing was because of the dreadful writing over the last few years! When the stupid new talk shows fail, will ABC bring the soaps back?

One Life to Live deserves to be saved. It's has potential. And Daytime television without ERICA KANE. It's an end of an era. Cancel the overly dark and brutal General Hospital and Save One Life to Live.

OMFG !! You have to be kidding me !! Talk about ratings dropping, ABC you are in for a big shocker. You are ultimately destroying your own network. I will now make the decision to boycot you all together.I will not and refuse to give you my support as I have done for many many years based on this decision.
You are a bunch of money hungry, political, power hungry mongrels and have shown us that you really do not care about what we as faithful and loyal viewers want. I wish you and your new shows all the bad luck in the future. Big MISTAKE !

Sad, just gives me another reason to stop watching main stream t.v. and go to cable. Bad move abc. Maybe a cable channel will pick them up.
