ABC Cancels All My Children and One Life To Live

Susan Lucci will now be unemployed after 41 straight years of playing Erica Kane!
And then there were four . . . The Bold and the Beautiful (CBS), Days Of Our Lives (NBC), General Hospital (ABC) and The Young and the Restless (CBS).

Even sadder is the type of programming that's replacing them:
From Executive Producer JD Roth and 3 Ball Productions, producers of “The Biggest Loser,” “Masterchef” and ABC’s upcoming “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition,” comes “The Revolution,” a Daily Show about health and lifestyle transformations. The show is hosted by a team of experts and rotating guest contributors who help viewers transform all areas of their lives, from relationships to family, food, style, home design, finance and more. This dream team, led by fashion expert Tim Gunn, also includes celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak and American Idol alum Kimberley Locke. The show features a unique concept: each week one woman’s five-month weight loss journey will unfold in just five days, with daily results and a final transformational reveal on Friday. “The Revolution” is a one-stop shop for better living.

Agreed. The only question now is the boot order.
I do not expect the four remaining shows to last much longer.
In losing All My Children and One Life To Live, we're not just losing the shows. We're also losing two of the few places you can see actresses of a "certain age" -- Susan Lucci, Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser and Kim Zimmer -- on a daily basis and in front-burner storylines.

That's right. And the soaps often tried unusual and daring storylines before the networks got to them. I know nothing lasts forever, but it's depressing all the same.

It's probably all just Greenlee's dream but . . . so wonderful to see Rebecca and Josh together again after nine years. And, again, I'm so proud of Josh Duhamel for calling ABC and asking if he could be part of the farewell.
