14 Apr ABC Daytime Line-Up Shaken Up As “All My Children” & “One Life To Live” Get Cancelled
The ABC network announced the cancellation of 2 long time running soap opera. “All My Children” which has been on the air for 41 years, and “One Life To Live” on the air for 43 years, were both cancelled today.
The shows will be replaces with a cooking show called “Chew” hosted by Mario Batali and “Lifestyle Transformations” hosted by former American Idol contestant Kimberly Locke and Tim Gunn.
The soap opera, which was a daytime staple is fading away. ABC now only has “General Hospital” and NBC only has “Days Of Our Lives” but CBS still has “The Young & The Restless” and “The Bold & The Beautiful” respectively.
I was a closet “Days Of Our Lives” fan by girlfriends. I am somewhat happy to see their appeal is waining. We as men, sometimes felt women think they needs drama in a relationship or need it to be exciting to where we are saving them from their male best friend from elementary school who was trying to rape them. Now, we have 90210 where it’s just your high school teacher trying to rape you.
