ABC Cancels Soap Classics

Long running soap favorites, All My Children and One Life to Live have been cancelled by ABC. The final episode of All My Chidlren will air in September and One Life to Live will come to an end in January 2012. The TV icons will be replaced by two new shows, The Chew and The Revolution. ABC stated, “We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming these days,” Fons said. “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.” We say farewell to these soaps that will forever be remembered.
