All My Children and One Life To Live Cancelled In Favor Of A Food Show And A Weight Loss Show.

ABC is dropping iconic soaps in favor of a show about food, followed by a show about depriving yourself of food.
“All My Children” will end in September 2011 while “One Life to Live” will finish its run in January 2012. The only remaining soap opera on the network will be “General Hospital.”
ABC has also greenlit replacements for the soap shows: “The Chew,” a food show with rotating hosts including Mario Batali and Clinton Kelly – (Think ‘The View,’ with napkins and more butter,) as well as a show called “The Revolution,” a show that will follow Tim Gunn as he condenses several months of weight loss over a week of shows, with the Friday being the big reveal and, since Gunn is involved, a likely fashion makeover.
“All My Children” premiered on January 5, 1970 and has received more than 30 Emmy Awards. “One Life to Live” debuted on July 15, 1968. It made household names (and faces) of Susan Lucci and Erica Slezak, who were on their respective shows for more roughly four decades.
Lucci issued the following statement:

“It’s been a fantastic journey. I’ve loved playing Erica Kane and working with Agnes Nixon and all the incredible people involved with All My Children. I’m looking forward to all kinds of new and exciting opportunities.”
