Two of TV’s longest-running daytime dramas — All My Children and One Life To Live — have been canceled, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
ABC made the announcement Thursday. Both shows will be replaced by lifestyle programs The Chew and The Revolution – the popular soaps will end in September 2010 and January 2011 respectively.
All My Children premiered on January 5, 1970 while One Life To Live first aired on July 15, 1968.
Disney ABC Television President Brian Frons 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 and offer a wide variety of opinions and focus on `real life’ takeaways.”
