Final Episode of “All My Children”
After 41 years the daytime soap opera “All My Children” airs its final episode today. The end of the road for both “All My Children” and “One Life To Live” was announced by ABC earlier this year. The network said both shows would be replaced by two new lifestyle series.
A food-oriented show, “The Chew”, will debut on Monday in place of “All My Children”. A weight-loss show, “The Revolution”, will replace “One Life To Live” when that show comes to an end in January. Declining ratings is the reason for the cancellation of both shows.
An online version of “All My Children” could show up in January and it would pick up where the show left off. Only two cast regulars – Cameron Mathison and Lindsay Hartley — have agreed to continue their roles. But some of the others, including Susan Lucci, who has played the role of Erica Kane since the show began in 1970 remains unsigned.
