"ABC has announced that two of its three soap operas -- All My Children and One Life to Live -- will go off the air in the coming months. General Hospital will be left as the network's only remaining soap.


"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," Brian Frons said in a statement. "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."


"All My Children and One Life to Live are iconic pieces of television that have made an indelible mark on our culture’s history,” Frons continued. “Each of the shows has touched millions and millions of viewers and informed the social consciousness. It has been a privilege to work with the extraordinary teams who brought the residents of Pine Valley and Llanview to life each day, and we thank the cast, crew, producers and most especially the fans for their commitment to the shows through their history."


Together, All My Children and One Life to Live combine for 84 years of broadcast history. All My Children is slated to go off the air in September. One Life to Live will conclude its run in January 2012.


"ABC just cancelled AMC and OLTL. End of an era. So sad. Fond memories," Cady McClain (Dixie Martin, AMC) posted via Twitter.


Both soaps will be replaced with talk shows. The first is called The Chew, which will have a food-themed focus. The second is a show tentatively called The Revolution.


This is a developing news story. Details to follow throughout the day. "

I don't watch either soap, but I cannot believe this is happening!

Why are they trying to get rid of soaps!?!?

We really do not need another talk show!

AHHHH I've been watching AMC my whole life! It's great for a working mom. Everything is in 2-3 minute scenes. I can watch 10 minutes at a time if that's all the time I have.

I can't stand talk shows! UGGGGH!

How sad! I don't watch either of those, but it's still upsetting. And I'm not sure how many (more) actors/actresses from other soaps Y&R can hire!

I agree with the others...more talk shows? Bleh.

Idk if it's the hormones still, but I cried when I saw this on soap central the other day! I've been watching OLTL my whole life, and my mother and grandmother since it started! I have no idea what I'm going to do, as a SAHM it's my one little bit of "me time" when DH gets home from work!
