    Wow, it's been years since I watched a soap opera, but even I'm a little nostagically sad to see these 2 go.

    ABC Cancels All My Children and One Life to Live:

    Wow! I don't watch One Life to Live often, but...I used to watch in in the summers with my Nana. Way back when Vicky and Joe were dating and her father and sister, Meredith were still alive.

    It will be a lose....

    let's face it, the soaps are no match for reality shows like Real Housewives.

    What's that you say? Writing?? Why would anyone want something that is professionally written when you can watch real people being "spontaneous"?

    I am not a fan of either genre, it seems that the younger generation likes to gets it "Drama" from real life.

    I think ABC is making a huge mistake with this decision.

    The shows replacing the soaps are cheaper to produce as well as the ratings for the soaps have dropped over time.
    Sad overall.

    In all honesty, I am a bit sad to see these go as well. But, ironically, my hubby is the one that's extremely upset as he hasn't missed a show in several years for either one of these! I am sad as it keeps him out of my hair so I can quilt and surf the board. LoL! Now what am I gonna do to occupy him for those 2 hrs a day??

    I have watched them both since their beginning...wow, saddens me that they want just talk shows and reality tv nowadays. That is my relaxation time after cleaning and before preparing dinner, guess I will have to quilt lol.

    Now you know how I felt when they canceled Guiding Light and Days of our Lives on CBS. But I now have more time to quilt.

    They are crazy to cancel these 2 soaps. I have watched both of them everyday for years. I think talk shows and reality shows are boring. After all, who wants to hear about other peoples problems.

    Oh NO! Please tell me this is just a late Aprils fools joke. I have worked at home for years and years, and these people have kept me company all that time. I don't watch them every day, but I can not imagine them not being there at all. I know so many people that will be so upset.

    I read that this afternoon, Im retired now and can actually sit and make/eat a lunch and pick up the kitchen thru these 2 shows. They will be replacing w/ a cooking/ talk show and some other talk show. I was so mad I went to the ABC website and wrote them a letter in the "contact us" page. Theyre not the greatest of programs, but 2 more of the same shows they have on 57 other channels is just boring and non creative. I told them to bring back test patterns for 2 hrs a day - at least it would be a change. sharet

    Frankly, I am GLAD that the plug is being pulled on AMC - Am soooo tired of seeing Cameron and Greenlee practically in every scene - sorryline was drab. Now if they cancelled GH, that would be a good move too - BUT!!!!!!OLTL - naw - I was looking forward to seeing the original Todd come back - so many of the actors have just signed new contracts (what is up with THAT?)Maybe I can get more done in my own life now, instead of being glued to the tv!!
