    I can't be the only one who grew up watching soaps with their mother(or father for some people)

    ABC cancels 'One Life to Live' and 'All My Children'By Anna Chan, TV Editor

    Sorry, soap fans. Long running shows "One Life to Live" and "All My Children" will soon be wrapping up their 40-plus-year tales. ABC made the announcement Thursday, saying that "extensive research" into "the changing viewing patterns of the audience" led them to this decision.

    The final episode of "AMC" is slated for September, while "OLTL" will wrap up in January 2012. Both shows have won multiple awards during their long runs. "To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history with our soaps, 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' will conclude each series in a manner that respects their legacies and longstanding hopes of many of their viewers," the statement said.

    "General Hospital" will be the network's only daytime soap remaining.

    So what's replacing these two iconic shows? Sounds like it'll be reality/talk-show-type programming. ABC said in a statement that one of the new shows, "The Chew," "will focus on food." The one hour live show will have vewers talking about all things food, from trends, to gardening and beyond.

    The other show is "The Revolution," a daily program "about health and lifestyle transformations." A team of experts led by Tim Gunn will help viewers change various aspects of their life, from home design, finances, food, relationships and more.

    "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," said Brian Frons, president of Disney ABC/Television Group. "We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming these days."

    What will you miss most about the two soaps?

    At least ATWT was replaced by a decent talk show. The Chew and The Revolution sound like utter crap.
