All My Children Cancelled 2011 Officially – And One Life to Live!



Filed under : Celebrity News

All My Children fans will be terribly upset to hear that the show has officially been cancelled and its last episode will air in September.

Fans of the show were skeptical as to whether the show would remain on the air after rumors of a cancellation began swirling last month. But, when Susan Lucci assured viewers that the speculation was false, it gave fans of the show a sense of comfort knowing their favorite soap opera would remain on air.

Today, however, it has been officially announced that All My Children is cancelled – along with ABC’s other hit soap opera One Life to Live.

Such a sad news day for soap fans!

The only remaining ABC soap opera is General Hospital – a show that has an incredibly dedicated following and one that will hopefully continue despite the recent shutdowns.

So what will take the place of these two hit shows? ABC will be airing two new shows: Chew and The Revolution.

Chew will be a live show about the world of food and will feature a wide variety of popular chefs and food experts as hosts. The Revolution is a show about health and lifestyle transformations. So original.

Here’s what ABC Daytime President Brian Frons had to say about the cancellations:

“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,” he said.

“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.”

I think the number of comments on websites everywhere shows just how many viewers ABC might lose with this change.

Let Brian Frons know your opinions: Would you rather watch All My Children and One Life to Live or Chew and The Revolution?

    I am not going to be watching the Chew or another get help program on ABC.
    We have enough Dr and cooking shows and reality shows.
    I started listing to soaps while my mom did the ironing in the kitchen on radio. Afternoon is a couple of hours to rest when raising 8 sons.
    I love being able to get away for a couple of hours. I now have grt grnkids. I still like One life to Live and watched not every day but enough to keep up with Erika Kane.
    I do not need another reality show. Please give us back our afternoon soaps.
    I am 72 and not and I mean not going to watch what ever you put on in place of them. My Daughter-in laws feel the same way and so do a lot of other women who tape them to watch them later.
    NBC here I come

    I think the view is enough and ABC is doing to much. I think ABC will and have lost a lot of loyal fans. The Chew suck! I guess I will be looking at other channels I’m sure something better is on. Thank god for cable.

    This has to be the stupidest idea that ABC has ever come up with, if it is Brian Frons that did this than maybe he should be cancelled or at least FIRED.
    ABC must be Government as they dont care about there seniors either. Watch something for 40 years and then they take it away from you.
    Maybe we could try and convince the Canadian stations to pick it up.
    Im another one that wont be watching ABC except for GH dont even consider taking General Hospital off the air.

    I am very sad to see two great Soaps such as these go, and very dissappointed with Mr. Frons for doing so. I have been watching both of these since the day they started. You could at least keep them going on Soapnet since most of the night time line-up is not worth watching. There are enough cooking shows on the Food Network to last a lifetime and I am sick of reality shows

    Why would ABC gamble on two shows that, in my opinion, lack substance? I think the fans should boycott these shows.

    I really don’t understand why ABC would take shows off that so many people loved for two shows that won’t get any attention. If you ask me AMC, OLTL, And GH is ABC because when they removed ABC from Cable vision the only thing people really was worried about missing was the soaps and Dancing with the stars. And now that AMC is gone and knowing OLTL is next … You Might as well cancel ABC Station all together..VERY STUPID MOVE…

    What a crappy ending. All those years invested…I have been watching AMC, mostly, since high school. And OLTL, I only started watching less than two years ago or so, but it has become one of my favorite shows on day or night! The ABC execs who made the decision to cancel AMC and then make this the finale, I feel, totally disrespected the AMC actors, crew, and the true AMC viewers by giving us this ending, and the whole way they went about it. I understand they say they weren’t making enough money from the show, but they could’ve improved some of the recent storylines to gain more viewers, presented the financial problems to the cast to see if anyone would voluntarily take a pay-cut vs. having no job at all (isn’t almost everybody else having to do the same thing?!), and/or, hey, how about some of the top execs, for once, actually taking a pay-cut?! It makes me sick. I hope those two new shows to replace AMC and OLTL will fail miserably (except for Clinton Kelly’s segments! :) ). Do we not have enough of those type of shows anyway?! Why couldn’t we continue to have the ability to escape into somebody else’s problems for a while on TV, instead of teaching us how to further take care of our families?! Obviously, I’m all for taking better care of ourselves and our families, but sometimes that can mean by allowing ‘mommy’ a little time to herself NOT focusing on what MORE she can do for EVERYBODY ELSE! Thank you and hugs to the casts and crews of AMC and OLTL for all of the valuable entertainment you gave (valuable, because it was good work and had meaning, and valuable for providing ‘disstractions’ which helped me (believe it or not!) retain some of my sanity. As to the ABC execs, only SEXIST OUT-OF-TOUCH-WITH-REALITY MALE EXECUTIVES would remove such historical shows as AMC and OLTL, and replace them with shows to ‘teach’ us how to lose weight and how to cook for our famillies. Gee, there’s some real getaways from our day-in-day-out lives; I’ve never thought of those…

    Brian Frons has no idea what it means to many of us fans of All My Children & One Life To Live. He has ruined ABC, I been watching AMC, & OLTL, for so many years. Soap Operas, are what afternoons are all about, who cares about more reality shows, they will come and go Soaps are part of of being part of our extended families. I been a ABC fan for along time. AMC has more fans then Brian Frons has probably on his Twitter account. You are so wrong to think that AMC doesnt have enough viewers, there are many who enjoy I been watching since it began, i was 7 when i started to watch. I agree why not put it on Soapnet, or on the O Network.

  12. Brian Frons has officially ruined ABC airtime! What is ABC without All My Children and One Life To Live? I guarantee your ratings will go down because i will stop watching ABC shows for the most part and i am sure others will too. I only watch if something good is on and the cooking shows that you are coming up with will NOT compare to the soaps!So, Mr. Frons, i don’t know what you have been smoking but i suggest you lay off of it!! I am very disappointed that this will be allowed after all these years of ABC soaps!

    This is the biggest mistake ABC can do for daytime tv. I grew up watching AMC and OLTL with my grandma and great aunts. Now, every evening I couldnt wait to get home to catch up on what has happened on ABC soaps. I was so happy when my job added tv channels to our computers. I would plug in my ear phones and listen to my soaps as I worked and then watch it when I get home.I cant stand reality tv shows. Well, I guess I wont be watching ABC doing the daytime…heck, I really dont watch it doing the evening.

    So they cancelled All My Children ( l have been watching since 1975) and replaced it with a show – Chewed- are they serious? Do they even know the demographics – first they cancel As The World Turns on CBS- and now AMC
    lets see how well Chew does- or are they going to be all chewed and spit out at ABC- too bad – now l will only watch CANADIAN TV!!

    I started watching All My Children when I first arrived here in the States in 1970. I am so upset that ABC is canceling this show. ABC is making a big mistake and I’m sure they’ll realize it too little too late. I’d like to know who they put in charge of making these decisions. They could at least continue these shows online. I’m sure fans would still watch. I’m tired of watching shows on ABC only to find them cancelled for no reason.
