In the dramatization above, the role of me is played by Erica Kane and the role of ABC is played by Annie. This best expresses my feelings about ABC putting two of my former babysitters in a casket and burying them forever. ABC made me wail out a sad tail of NOOOOOOOs by officially killing two classic soap opera masterpieces. They are murdering MAH STORIES!!!!!
The press release from ABC is below. It hurts even more that they are replacing these beloved pieces of my childhood with a foodies talk show called The Chew and a makeover talk show called The Revolution! We all know why I weep today.
“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. 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. 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.”
All My Children will be put to sleep on September after 41 years on air. One Life to Live will have no more lives to live in January 2012 after 43 years on air. The slut I care about the least, General Hospital, will stay on air.
This is truly is a sad covered in a sad covered in another sad. Erica Kane, Tina Lord Buchanan, Asian Blair Cramer and Dorian Lord are like second, third, fourth and fifth role model mothers to me. WHY???????!
