ALL MY CHILDREN BEING CANCELED AFTER 41 YEARS ON AIR — REPORTS


Thursday, March 24, 2011

All My ChildrenAFTER 41 years on the air, All My Children, is reportedly set to be canceled.

The soap opera — which is set in the apochryphal Philadelphia suburb of Pine Valley (usually interpreted as Bryn Mawr) — will be axed later this week, according to reports.

It’s believed the program will be replaced with a talk show, which is much cheaper to producer.

All My Children has been running continuously since 1970; recently, it earned longtime daytime actress Susan Lucci a Daytime Emmy.

Ratings for daytime soaps have slipped across the board, with CBS canceling Guiding Light and As The World Turns and NBC canceling Passions.

Recently, ABC moved production of All My Children from New York to Los Angeles in order to save on production costs. The show’s ratings have dropped about one-and-a-half points since 2000.

    this really stinks…. this is the only soap i watch

    • cherie

      It’s really sad that soap operas are being cancelled every day while “reality” shows are popping up faster than wildflowers!!!! Soap operas have REAL actors, with REAL scripts!!!!Unlike these reality shows where “ignorance” is the only qualification!!!! That’s why this country is such bad shape. We have little value for tradition.

      • http://soapnet.com Robin

        I love All My Children been watching since it started.please don’t cancel it

      • http://facebook Dorothy

        I have watched this soap for 40 years and now that I have retired and can enjoy watching my soaps….every station HAS GONE CRAZY…..they pulled GL, ATWT,now they want to start messing with my ABC soaps. THERE ARE STILL PEOPLE WHO WATCH THESE SOAPS. I AM NOT INTO REALITY SHOWS but I do enjoy the SOAPS. There has to be a solution.

      I am totally disappointed!!!! I am 44 yrs old and have been watching this since I was in 5th grade. My 23 yr old daughter has been watching since she was 12. All we need is another talk show, boring!!!! Maybe if enough people complain they will keep it going!!!!

      • Barbra

        I am 45. I started watching this when I was 5, in 1971. My kindergarten class started at noon so I would watch All My Children before I went to school. It is just a different time now. Women work. Soaps seem so unrealistic now when you can have a reality show with all the drama.

        Susan Lucci has been guest starring on Hot in Cleveland. She is quite hilarious!

    • Pat

      STOP WITH THE TALK AND REALITY SHOWS ALREADY!!!!!lEAVE OUR AMC ALONE. Been watching since day (l). ABC you will lose lot of watchers of your network. There is more to life than almighty buck. REALLY SUCKJS you guys

    • http://showbizspy debra

      This is sooo messed up! This was the only soap I watched for many years. I started watching this in high school. I record it every day while at work and look forward to watching it in the evening. Those stupid talk shows and reality shows are soooo lame! I find them totally moronic!

    • http://Yahoo Jan Laffoon

      I’ve watched since the show came on the air 41 years ago. I’m sorry to see it canceled but agree it stinks now. They’ve put ugly people on the show and the story
      line is terrible. Perhaps instead of canceling, they should just hire new writers.

    • Joanne Nance

      I can’t believe it either, this is really a sad situation!
      I completely agree with what Cherie says about the dumb reality shows!
      By the way, we have way to many talk shows as it is, you can rest assured I won’t watch whatever it is you put out there!!

      Sincerely disappointed!!

  • robin young

    this really stinks…. this is the only soap i watch

  • D Daw

    I can’t say I am surprise. This used to be my favorite soap. I would have been very sad in the past. Today I just understand why looking at the show and what it is today! That move to LA was not smart. The whole look of the show and the acting has decresed. Plus we lost alot of good people that wouldn’t move with the show.Even before then AMC made terrible mistake when killing of beloved characters. Dixie, Stuart, Babe, and most importantly Zach Slater! Sorry AMC In addition Adam left and they turn the Character david in to someone that is constantly burned at the stake. But they let others get away with everything that’s not a good look AMC.

  • Pantyhose

    Sad news. Hate seeing daytime television being cancelled and replaced with awful talk shows such as “The Talk” on CBS.

    If CBS were to cancel The Young and Restless I will cancel my cable as I believe Y&R is actually better quality than most primetime television.

  • Rhonda

    After CBS canceled MY soap As The World Turns in September nothing surprises me. All My Children has also been part of my 45 years since I began watching soaps in the late 1970s.
    Money, money, money – that is all that matters. To heck with tradition and people’s feelings.

    Just what we need another talk show hosted by people that couldn’t be celebrities in any other way and by putting trash on TV to tell things most decent people wouldn’t want anyone to know. Did society just dumb down another notch? Oprah had the only worthwhile talk show I’ve seen in years and that was because Oprah had class or tried to.

    I have not watched CBS at all since ATWT was canceled and now I don’t even turn on my TV during the day. There is nothing on during the day anymore and Spongebob is the cream of the crop at night.

    • Britney

      Wow someone is a loser if Spongebob is their favorite show.

      • Sexcess1

        No youre a loser for calling Rhonda a loser. You LOSER!!!

  • Vicky Caylor

    Oh nooo!!!! What???? That is the only soap opera I watched and I am hook to that show!! I recorded this every day so that it will be ready for me every evening when I get off work. I will feel lost without that show. I have known AMC since I was 14 years old.

  • midnight

    That sucks the whole world is just going to hell.Yeah just what we need another dumb talkshow.There are so many on now that are just fluff and fillers talking about some bullcrap we don’t care about.I’ve watched AMC most of my life.I started watching it with my Grandmother in the early 80s.She’s dead too so I guess they can kill off my soap too.It’s all about money money money well in the end memories show for the life you had not money.

    • Heather

      Im so sad, I have been watching this show since I was 7 years old, 23 years ago! Started it with my mom and never stopped, I am seriously so devasted :(

  • Jae

    THIS SUCKS! I have watched AMC since it’s inception, when I was just 5 years old and have watched it ever since. Just what we need, another talk show! I watch AMC as a way to relax in the evenings after a hard day at work and now I won’t have that outlet. ABC,you are killing off one of the best shows, now to mention all the people you will be putting out of work.

  • Tammy

    What? This is awful we dont need another talk show who talks garbage. I have watched this show since I was little. All the soaps will be replaced eventually and put on stupid talk shows or game shows nothing that means anything. Daytime television not what it used to be. If they are going to take soaps off put on shows for children that are educational instead of whos the father of this child garbage.

  • Laura T

    It is so disappointing to think that exec’s at ABC think viewers want another talk show over this show that has been an institution on their network for 41 years. Most talk shows are horrible and NO ONE wants another one. I don’t need another “know it all” telling me how to live my life! Even though soaps in general have not been as great as in the past they still have great stories and actors that I love to watch each week. It is will be a huge loss to ABC if they choose to let this show go and I believe they will regret it in the ratings of whatever they put on in its place.

  • Mari

    I can’t believe it! All fans should write ABC and save this show!!

    • dawn

      Ditto is all I can say
      Dawn

  • Lou

    Mari I agree all the fans should sent emails to ABC and save All My Children. I love that soap opera and Susan Lucci is awesome. What in the world do we need another Talk Show??? Didn’t Oprah just give like a hand full of people their own Talk Show which added to the already tons of talk shows out there. This is America where the fabric of baseball, apple pie, and yes our Soap Operas go hand and hand! ;) Ok so maybe it’s not the fabric of America but it sure has been part of my life for the 41 years that it has been on air. I have grown up with this soap and I for one will not be watching another talk show. So if money and ratings is what they are worried about. They are in for a big shock. Get ready for ratings to drop in that time slot and lose millions ABC once you replace AMC!!!!

  • Sheila Gibson

    I am deeply sorry to hear that AMC is being cancelled. I started watching it with my mother over 30 years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed the ups and downs in Pine Valley. I too thought the move to California was a bad one with the killing off of Zach and replacing the NY crew with California folk. I usually watched the story after coming home from work and used it as a transition from work to home. Now what will I watch? Talk shows are NOT my cup of tea.

    • Mims

      If you don’t want to watch Tad & Erica then change the frigging channel and stop bitching.

      • Mims

        Sorry Sheila my reply was meant for SLG.

  • SLG

    ABout time … I thought we were going to have to watch Tad and Erica draw SSI.

    Thank you, Mr Ax-that-show!

      Also Showbiz Spy needs to report on factual information and leave the rumor based stuff alone:

      ABC Denies Rumors Of Cancelling ‘All My Children’
      3/23/2011 2:22 PM ET

      (RTTNews) – ABC has responded to rumors that it may be cancelling the long running soap opera, “All My Children,” due to low ratings. A network rep did not give them credence.

      “The Deadline.com piece is just the latest story in a long line of stories about this same topic. There is no change for the current ABC daytime schedule,” the rep told People.

      “All My Children” has been running continuously since 1970; recently, it earned longtime daytime actress Susan Lucci a Daytime Emmy.

      Ratings for daytime soaps have slipped across the board, with CBS cancelling “Guiding Light” and “As The World Turns” and NBC cancelling “Passions.”

      Recently, ABC moved production of “All My Children” from New York to Los Angeles in order to save on production costs. The show’s ratings have dropped about one-and-a-half points since 2000.

  • TeeJay

    It’s sad to hear that AMC is being canceled. I followed it for many years. However, I can’t say I’m surprised that it’s being canceled. We definitely DO NOT need another talk show clogging up the airways!

    Meanwhile Showbiz Spy needs to get an editor for its website content:

    “It’s believed the program will be replaced with a talk show, which is much cheaper to producer.”

    That should be “much cheaper to produce” not producer.

  • Dimples

    Alot of soaps and other expensive shows are going to get cancelled for so called cheaper reality/talk shows because of the economy.It also help if Susan Lucci took a pay cut from her $2 million dollar an episode salary.No body is worth that.

  • Melissa

    I just sent my complaint to ABC in regards to this ridiculous idea of cancelling AMC and putting on yet another stupid talk show. Everyone send your thoughts to ABC and maybe we can get them to keep AMC on for us.

  • Mike

    Its very sad when a great soap like All of Chidren is gone. My mom loved that show she would be very upset to learn its off the air. But shes gone now. Theres nothing on tv worth watching anymore. Thanks we still got cable and dvds of these shows to watch.

  • http://ronald4444@att.net babyboy

    I watch All My Children since 1972 and the show was part of my daily routine and was surprised to heard the news what a shame you can not depend on anything anymore . What a shame..

  • Debra

    I lost interest in the “soaps” when Marlena’s (Days of Our Lives) eyes turned yellow and she levitated above her bed. I lost interest in “soaps” when characters rose from the dead over and over and over again. I lost interest in “soaps” when Erica Kane married over and over and over again. I lost interest in “soaps” when the Mob continued to perpetuate unnecessary violence against others without retribution. The Bill Bell shows, Bold & the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless are the two top soaps for a reason. They know how to tell riveting stories without going over and over and over the top. Good riddance, All My Children.

  • http://ronald4444@att.net babyboy

    Sorry to hear about All My Kids’ I watch that show since 1972 , What a shame you can not depend on anything any more.

  • JACQUIE

    I STARTED WATCHING “ALL MY CHILDREN” WHEN MY YOUNGEST CHILD WAS BORN 41 YEARS AGO.IT’S THE ONLY SOAP I WATCH.I EVEN TAPE IT JUST TO BE SURE I DON’T MISS IT.” ALL MY CHILDREN” AND ” DANCING WITH THE STARS” ARE THE ONLY THINGS YOU HAVE THAT I WATCH.WHEN YOU SAY GOODBY TO THEM YOU’LL BE SAYING GOODBY TO ME AND ALOT OF OTHER LOYAL VIEWERS.WHY WOULD YOU WANT ANOTHER TALK SHOW? THE REASON THEY ARE CHEAPER IS BECAUSE THEY STINK.

  • Cindy

    No No No!!! Don’t they understand that this is the soap baby boomers grew up with!! Hopefully all these posts will mean something to ABC DON’T CANCEL AMC

  • Betty

    I am so sad to hear this. I have watched since it began in 1970. It is the only soap I watch. I don’t care for talk shows and ABC will loose me if they do this.

  • http://yahoo izabel

    OMG!!!! I cant believe it. The only good thing on ABC was the soaps. I watch AMC, OLTL, and GH. I can’t stand the talk show and the judge shows really suck!

    • Wanda

      Well, I like ALL MY CHILDREN and have for many years…I also love “One Life To Live” as it is very exciting every single day…thats what I like about that soap—no dragging of storylines and even if they do, I love the characters in this soap and they make it funny and very dramatic, especially John McBaine and the Ford Brothers, and Rex, so if AMC is cancelled, though sad to see it end, I will now have more time to focus my attention on OLTL and alsoenjoy doing other things.

  • Jessica

    This absolutely breaks my heart if this is true. I started watching this show again religiously in 2005. I have been with it through the ups and downs. I don’t understand how OLTL stays on the air. I heard that it was in cancellation trouble two years ago. I have a feeling that one day that daytime drama is going to be a thing of the past…..hopefully not!

  • Dawn

    st as if they are part of our family

  • Randy

    Good, maybe this will force the urban dwellers to go to work, instead of sitting around watching a bunch of garbage!!!

    • america

      lame. some of these people DVR it. some of them work nights. some of them can afford to stay home and take care of the house and kids. people like the show. what’s your problem?

    • Ms. Donna

      I don’t think urban dwellers are the only ones that watch daytime soaps. Many people watch them after work thanks to soapnet. At any rate, it is rather disappointing to see the show cancelled. Thank God many of the cast members are good enough actors and actresses to land jobs. I will definitely miss AMC.

    • Wanda

      Randy, thats not nice!…we women could say its a waste of time for men (and women too) to sit around and watch a bunch of sports but I dont because everyone has something they enjoy. Life is hard as it is…People need an ESCAPE and something fun and exciting to watch on TV. Reality drama is not for ME! I see enough of that on the news!…ugh!

  • Harriet

    That sucks. I enjoy watching the on drama on All My Children with such characters as Greenlee and Erica.

  • http://Yahoo margaret

    Hello, Anybody out there ? Gossip, hope so, but then that is what drama is all about. Gotten to like the characters, ABC, you are coming up in the ratings, but you still can’t beat CBS. Maybe you should leave well enough alone.

    Now i won’t have to, turn on my tv, until 1:00!

  • Karen in Rancho

    WHAT???? This is the best soap on ABC!!!! Cancel the others to save $$$$$!!!!

    • Wanda

      No!…dont cancel AMC or OLTL!….although, I’ve accidentally had the TV on for the other soaps, yawn!…Actually the best soap is One Life to Live and if you are not watching that one, then you are missing a great soap! Just my opinion…lol! (For those of you who watch OLTL, you know what I’m talking about.

  • Deb

    Well, that sucks! I started watching in 1974…kinda feels like family. I kinda saw this coming with the move to LA, although I never thought they would really flat out cancel it! Wow. Guess I’ll be doing something else at lunchtime now, like taking a walk and getting exercise like I should be doing! RIP AMC!

  • http://allmychildren linda

    It sucks Just what we need another talk show.Won’t be watching it.

  • Bryan

    Yikes..well, at least I’ll get an hour back a day..I’ve watched this for years and years..great show..but if they are going to wrap it up..will be interesting to see how they tie up storylines..

  • http://yahoonews Terri

    I never miss an episode of AMC! I LOVE IT and will not watch daytime ABC if AMC is cancelled! I remember running home at lunch in high school to watch. I scheduled my college classes to go to the student center (along with 100s of others) to watch and now that I no longer work and can record it I never miss an episode! You will definitely lose an AMC daytime viewer if AMC is cancelled!!

  • Jennifer Cathcart

    That is just what we need,,Another Talk Show!!! I have watched All My Children forever and even though I have been disappointed with some of the story lines I will really miss my soap!!

  • Rob

    Fantastic news. Now I get my wife back at night. what mindless drivel.

  • Jacqueline

    Sad to see AMC go away!!

  • Derick

    I am a guy, but I have been watching this show since it aired, I watch to see if I could out think the writers, and most times I figure out whats going to happen before the script is written, dont dump the show, GET BETTER WRITERS, I’m up for that job.

  • Tima

    This is the only show I know for all of my life. This show will be missed.

    I will watch the last episode.

  • http://yahoo Gloria

    It’s like saying goodbye to an old friend; friends change as they get older, and AMC has changed so much since 1970 (as have I). I use to watch for the fashion as well as the story line. The story line now is old and fashion is no longer the center of my universe. I still wonder who kidnapped Donna’s baby; and was Chuck really the father, not Palmer. It was disappointing that that story line did not go anywhere. Sauan Lucci has carried that soap since she was a teenager. We both should retire now.

    • wendy

      Yes well maybe it was for stay at home moms but we do have dvr s and vcr s and beta wait no beta Anyway i have watched since 1970 and I do work full time but look forward to relaxing at night and watching Going to miss it….

  • Jack Maverick

    Sad to see it happen, but it’s a sign of the times – Soaps were invented for stay-at-home moms, and there are fewer and fewer of those. If there’s a Soap Opera Hall of Fame, it should be crowned with a statue of Susan Lucci.

  • http://Showbizreply jfLOYD

    If they cancel anymore soaps for “talk shows the caliber of “The Talk…there will not be anymore programming worth watching during the day…pleasseeeee…another Talk Show????Yuck!

  • 12know

    It probably was a decision based on appeasing shareholders. That seems to be the rule in business today and it’s probably no different in show business either.

  • merc

    I watch AMC every day and when I have to go out I record it. God that is part of my daily life. Even my gradkid ask all the time nana are you going to watch all your childen.

  • Joanne

    I was shocked to hear the news :( I used to watch all ABC soaps and for the last 25 years all I watch is All My Children. Great another talk show. I love hearing about other peoples problems! NOT!!! I am VERY sad!

  • sapphire

    Well this sucks!! what about the actors?? where will they go? I think if they nede to cancel then they ned to crossover to Landview (One Life To Live) I think that would heat things up over there….

  • Dimples

    I know what I left in my comment above but I have been thinking about this.Someone left in their comment that they were ending on a Friday.What Friday in particular where they ending on?Was it tomorrow or next Friday?I was wondering which Friday because does everyone realize what next Friday is?Its April fools.Makes me wonder even though this is probably far from the truth but maybe this rumor is a April fools joke to get raitings and people to watch the show thinking it might be the last.

  • Joan campagna

    I am in shock — AMC was my very favourite soap opera — how can you even think of cancelling it. I am 66 years old and have watched it since it began with my Mom at first and now with children — the show was so valuable because it brought to light many newsworthy issues — aids, gays, women’s issues — it is an institution. We just lost Liz Taylor and now this — another talk show is not what’s needed — PLEASE, PLEASE don’t do this. I also tape it every day — what a hole in my heart!

  • Linda Wasyluk

    Funny, I went online today to see if there was a way to complain about the story lines. I’ve been watching for many, many, many years and although I keep watching hoping things will change, there are NO good story lines. This thing with the “Priest” and Kendall just stinks along with Erica and Jack….Please don’t let them get married….anyway as I was looking to complain, I see this. Not surprised, nothing exciting at any more. Angie blind (come on)…can’t think of one thing I’m excited to watch about for the show and felt this way for a long time……yes, I know, why do I keep watching?

  • hollynivy

    I know those of you that want to fight ABC to save your soap and in protest say you won’t watch the network again have good intentions but unfortunitly it won’t work. These are the same comments I saw when CBS stated they were cancelling As the World Turns. And ATWT still got cancelled. I just think it is sad because it is an era that is going away. Every year we see another soap go. I don’t watch All my Children but I watched ATWT from the age of 7 (I think) till it went off the air. Sure I got mad at it stopped watching for awhile but I always came back. Again it is so sad to see all the soaps saying goodbye. I only have 1 left and all I can do is hope it’s not next on the chopping block. By the way we don’t need another talk show. It will probably be just another ”view” replica like the last one. How many of those do we need?

  • Jan

    I started watching AMC when I was 14. Now after 39 yrs of watching it they want to cancel it. NO WAY! We already have 200 talk shows…who even watches those…I sure DON’T!! It was disappointed when they moved the show to CA and many of the MAIN characters disappeared. :( But I love the new story line with Caleb Cortlandt and also Asher. I DON’T like the new Marissa, she sucks! As someone else said not sure why they got rid of Babe and Dixie…big mistake! Babe was such a GREAT actress. I hated when they got rid of Jamie too…good actor and so good looking. (I’m just saying) ;) I hate that Adam/Stuart and especially Zack are gone. I thought they would of broke Zack back by now. Since they didn’t find a body it’s easy enough to do. But NOT if they are canceling the show! ARGH. I just can’t believe this!

    But putting all that aside this is the ONLY soap opera I watch and care about! It’s set to record daily. I can’t image them canceling AMC. This is a nightmare! What the heck has happened to our country..it’s went so far down the toilet when they can’t afford to produce a soap opera! My gosh…this is just ridiculous. I am battling cancer and this is one of the only shows I truly look forward too watching daily. This really upsets me.

    Come on AMC fans…lets all EMAIL/WRITE ABC and flood them with emails and ask/beg, and whatever it takes to leave this show on. If they don’t get flooded with emails and letters they will cancel it for sure. I’ve seen plenty of shows SAVED due to the fans writing, calling and emailing. Lets get busy. Tell everyone you know its being canceled. Put it on message boards…spread the word. Sorry…but I really WANT AMC to continue. And I am serious…WHO wants ANOTHER darned talk show! HELLO “ABC” NO ONE WANTS ANOTHER TALK SHOW..I DON’T CARE OF BRAD PITT IS THE HOSE…talk shows are getting so OLD!!!!!

    ABC….LEAVE OUR SHOW ALONE…DON’T EVEN THINK OF CANCELING IT. PLEASE DO WHATEVER IT TAKES…BUT DON’T CANCEL AMC.

  • lovestad

    I started watching AMC when I was in Kindergarden with my mom. It has been a staple in my day. When I cant be home to watch it, I have recorded it for later. It comes as no surprise, due to the lack of talent writing these last few years. Killing off of everyone from Dimitri to Stuart and replacing them with younger, no talent actors, trying to make a story line for them….i.e. yet another son for Tad. Its a known joke dying on daytime is never permanent, but bringing Dixie back three times before doing her in was a bit rediculous. Brought back Jeff and a long lost son for Erica, i could go on forever. Though I love the show, and am saddened about this news, its been a long time coming. It will be sorely missed and I wish the best of luck tot hem all. BUT, PLEASE DON’T TELL ME THAT I AM GOIGN TO HAVE TO LISTEN TO ANOTHER GAGGLE OF BROADS WITH WORTHLESS NEWS THAT NO ONE CARES ABOUT AND/OR THAT EVERY OTHER WANT TO BE OPRAH THAT HAS ALREADY REPORTED ON IT. Television isnt just now going to hell in a hand cart, its been there and returning once again. Reality tv is most of Primetime and talk shows are taking over daytime. Whats the point of paying for cable/satallite with radio(free) and internet(cheaper than cable). Goodbye AMC….

  • Chery

    I Love AMC!!!!!! I can’t believe they are going to cancel the soap!

  • Jan

    I hope someone from ABC reads these websites to get the feedback from this TERRIBLE announcement? I already posted once but just wanted ABC to take NOTICE of how many ppl just here alone have NO INTEREST in ANOTHER DARNED TALK SHOW!!! Again…I don’t care if the host is Brad Pitt, George Clooney, or one of my very favorites “John Travolta”, I still would NOT watch the talk show.

    There are FAR too many as it is…we are “inundated” with them as is! What is left to talk about..my GOSH! Even these doctor shows which are still the same as a talk show in my book with Dr. Phil and Dr. OZ.(I like them…but just another form of a talk show!) The ONLY talk show I will occasionally peek in on if I have time is Ellen Degeneres…she is hilarious!! But she is the ONLY one. But shows like “The View” suck… bunch of women talking over each other. And WHO the h#$$ cares about THEIR lousey opinions anyway?!! NOT ME!! The ONLY way “The View” can get any attention is to DISS “O’Reilly” or say something smart mouthed to Donald Trump, or have fights when Rosie had her big mouth on there! It’s the ONLY way they can make the news or get attention. The View is desperate for an audience so they have to cause controversary with the guest they invite on the show…how sick is that!

    In fact…listen up ABC…I just had a BRILLANT thought and it will fix your problem. CANCEL “The View” and in exchange leave AMC on. You would be saving a fortune not paying those ladies that can’t even keep an audience attentions. Then put an earlier reality show of some type on.:) Anything would be better then THE VIEW.

    The channels are FILLED with Talk shows! There’s TOO MANY OF THEM. As it stands channel 7 “ABC” doesn’t have anything I watch other them AMC. Now I have no reason to every turn them on again. Way to go ABC. We have talk shows from morning, noon to night time talk. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I use to watch Jay Leno at night to hear his monologue since nothing else was on at that time…and Jay is funny. But now I don’t even care about that. I watch other things I’ve recorded throughout the day…and believe me…NOT one is a darned talk show! Talk shows are OLD AND TIRED!!! Put them to bed already. ARGH!

    They went to Reality shows along time ago because they said they were cheaper and easier to produce..and usually pulls in a good audience and I can say that’s true…since I watch several of the Reality shows. Love Suvivor, Big Brother and Apprentice. Those hold my attention & there always different! Different ppl each time…never know what’s going to happen. Who will win the money/game…can be fun and a good way to ESCAPE your daily problems for the hr or two. But talk shows sit and talk about promoting some actors NEW book or movie that is coming out. (who cares!) Or they go over what’s going on at the moment in the world…and AGAIN…who cares what their opinion on anything is! WAKE UP ABC….your going to LOSE big time on this one. Pulling the plug on AMC is not going to be good for you. You will have alot of angry AMC fans that won’t go near your channel. I won’t. I hardly do as it is now…you just don’t have any good shows on except AMC. Channel 2 (CBS) and channel 11(FOX) are the two best stations for good programs.

    Besides…what will Erica do if AMC is canceled. She is stero typed and no one will hire her. Not that she needs money…her and her hubby are well off. I LOVE AMC…you have millions of faithful fans and your going to pull the rug out from under us. Come on now…you CAN find a way to make this work! AGAIN PPL….WRITE AND FLOOD ABC with tons or EMAILS, LETTERS AND PHONE CALLS if you can. If they do SAVE this show…and I’ve seen it done. I pray they BRING back the major players we all love and miss.

    Another talk show … sigh. Having been inundated with (scripted) “reality” shows and low-brow over-dramatized talk shows, I can only imagine what’s in store. I rarely have time to watch daytime TV, but I remember watching the 15 minute soaps with my grandmother in the 50′s, and then watching the 30 minute shows as my young children napped. It’s a shame to lose these iconic features.

  • Chele

    I sure hope this isn’t true! I’ve watched this show for a good 34 years. Out of all the soap opera’s AMC should be proud of themselves for keeping it above the others. It was always so clean compared to the others.

    I wouldn’t have even noticed this if I didn’t see it on the yahoo page showing AMC as the top thing “trending”. When I clicked on it I was shocked!!! How depressing to even think about this show being canceled. I can officially write channel 7 off my list of stations to tune into. That was the only show they had that I watched on ABC. This really is unbelievable. Is this for real? What has come to this world that they can’t afford to keep a soap opera on? I hate to turn this to policital thing but it is. Since Obama has been in office he has managed to ruin America’s economy in more ways then I thought possible! Now it’s gotten so low they are taking our soap off because they can’t afford to keep it on. It’s managed to stay on 41 YEARS…now Obama has been in office and everything has went to heck in a hand basket! Thanks Obama…really appreciate this.

THIS THE STUPIDEST THING THAT YOU CAN DO. LETS CANCEL ABC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dottie

    Please reconsider this. I’ve been watching this since 1972! I tivo it everyday and it’s my down time when I get home from work. The characters have become “like family” over these years and it saddens me to think of them leaving. Another talk show? Really? What are you thinking? I’m so sick of talk shows on TV.

  • Linda

    I swear if you cancel AMC, I will never watch abc again. I will watch the food network. I love AMC I love all the people on there. For 1 hour a day it takes my mind off my troubles and listen to theres. PLEASE DON’T TAKE IT OFF!

  • Lenda

    Why is it that all the soap operas are being cancelled? I was absolutly shocked when the cbs soaps were cancelled xcept for the b&b and Y&R,just when I started getting into them they were cancelled.Whats up with television now days.Dont we have enough talk shows as it is,PLZ no more talk shows.Bring back the soap operas.

  • nelnel

    I’ve watched AMC since the very first episode!!! There have been ups and downs, but the show is still the best afternoon delight there is.

    ITA with Lenda… NO MORE TALK SHOWS and I’d like to add… leave All My Children and One Life to Live alone!!!!!

  • me

    According to soapcentral.com, AMC is not cancelled! Get all of the facts before posting such rubbish!!

  • Cid

    Sadly, it’s time. Only the strong survive. AMC continued to write down to it’s audience/viewers, neglected the baby boom generation that put daytime on the map, crammed young stories/characters people did not care about across the air, and did not integrate or tether new characters to core families.

    New blood was never allowed to flow…Same old producers, writers, going from soap to soap. Focus on romance & family, no need to jet off to Paris, or invent an illness…just look into your history…write longer scenes, cut the show to 30 minutes, no need to recap or remind viewers who’s who…audience is educated, do not write down to us.

    The USA is no longer lily white. As a third generation San Franciscan of mixed heritage, I cannot relate to anyone on screen. People grow, change, become enlightened…why not allow characters to do so?

    My grandmother was blind and listened to the radio soaps. My aunts, uncles, cousins all followed Peyton Place, Dark Shadows, Search For Tomorrow, AMC, OLTL, Ryan’s Hope, Loving, Edge of Night, B&B, Y&R and many many more…my 18 year old niece does not watch TV soaps! Let the internet have the 18-24 year old demographic.

    Baby boomers and generation X are your target demo.

    Soaps use to reflect society. Our hopes, dreams, fears…a mirror with a dash of humor, suspense, and love. We can have our soaps, they just need to get creative again and remember who they are.

    AMC we loved you, but you stopped loving us back.

    Thanks for the memories.

  • millie

    sorry to see this show go…………….have been a fan since the beginning….move to LA, bad idea…………

  • Annette

    BIG BIG BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!! This is the baby boomers soap! I’ve been watching since 1971.Do they relize how many fans AMC has??????

  • millie

    Just what people need, another talk show……….shame on you……..

  • nelnel

    After reading all the other posts, I’d like to add just one more comment.

    I, too, have become bored with what they have done with television. In fact, I only watch 3 programs on ABC … AMC, OLTL and Private Practice.

    Quite frankly, I have been extremely PO’d with the network ever since they cancelled Boston Legal. I doubt they are capable of coming up with something else to hold my attention or regain my loyalty.

    Keep it up, boys. Pretty soon, I won’t be turning to your network at all.

  • Patty

    OMG! Don’t take the AMC out my day on ABC!
    The zanniness and RL issues are better than any dime-a-dozen talk show that could possibly replace my beloved soap.

    Soaps keep me sane at work. It’s politically incorrect to gossip about your co-workers — so my soaps are the best gossip conversation out there for us gals.

    Hopefully OLtL will manage to live on.

    GH should be the one going IMHO. That gangster stuff is just getting old. And besides — what the heck does that have to do with a Hospital? Really?

    ABC — BLEHHHH!

  • http://yahoo.com d.sutton

    I can’t believe they are doing this to all my children, I’ve been watching it since it began, it is the only daytime soap I do watch,we are aloud to have portably televisions, at my job, you are going to disapoint a lot of loyal viewers please reconsider,it couldn’t possible be loosing that much money,take off a reality show, there is enough of those, that should take care of any money problems, again PLEASE RECONSIDER A VERY VERY LOYAL FAN.

  • Tom Tagliente

    For those fans of Soaps, you can now catch episodes of shows like BEVERLY HILLS 90210 and THE OC on Soapnet. These shows had quality acting and are shown twice a day. 90210 is actually airing two episodes a day back to back, repeating them later for those who miss it in the morning.

  • Mary

    AMC is one of my favorite soaps. I’ve watched it since the 70′s. Wish they’d change their minds.

  • Debi Horack

    NO NO NO!!!! I have watched this soap everyday with my grandmother and mother. My boys grew up eating lunch in a high chair with All My Children. Another talk show ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! Please find a way to keep this show running. All My Children fans will speak out

  • Geri O.

    I am so upset about this!!! I have been watching AMC since day one & I can’t believe they want to cancel it. It’s bad enough that tv is setup for reality tv! Come one don’t take this off the air!

  • http://ShowbizSpy Stephanie

    SAVE, ALL MY CHILDREN, SAVE, ALL MY CHILDREN, NOT EVERYONE IS INTO THESE REALITY SHOWS THAT SEEMS TO BE CLOGGING UP THE TELEVISION STATIONS, IF THE SOAPS ARE ALL CANCELLED THERE IS NO NEED FOR TELEVISION, OTHER THAN TO WATCH THE NEWS. SO PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL ALL MY CHILDREN I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF THE SOAP OPERA’S SINCE THE 70′S.

  • http://Yahoo Carol

    It seems like everything that we have enjoyed in America is changing now even down to the soap opera. With all the death and crime that surrounds us all the time cann’t you just let those of us who have grown-up with this show continue to enjoy it and not have to face reality on every other show on the air. Please consider allowing the fans of AMC to still have this get a way from reality

  • Melissa A. Layton

    I’m really sorry that All My Children will be over this year and it’s really sad.

  • Cheryl

    I will not watch another talk show. I have been watching this soap forever and tape it every day. Maybe the executives have become so greedy and need to really look at the big picture. Corproate American is greedy and have caused so many financial issues in this country.

    I will miss watching this soap.

  • Cindy Longstreth

    OH MY GOD! I grew up with these people they are like my family! I watched the very first episode and have never quit! I can’t believe they are doping this!!!!!!!! I have always watched all 3 ABC soaps but if All My Children goes away I’ll quit watching ABC period! I am be just devistated!!!!!!! I have watched One Life To Live and General Hospital too from their beginnings! I don’t know how to cope with this.

  • http://yahoo Bettie

    I have ben a fan of the ABC soaps for just about 40 years. I think it is ashame that they are going to do this to a show ICON such as the soaps are. It will be only a matter of time till they will do the same with OLTL and GH. The things we do not need on daytime are more games shows and talk shows. I guess I will be buying more movies (DVD’s). I can not hardley stand another person talking about how to improve your finances or your love live or how to cook or clean better and cheaper or easier. As for game showes I gave them up with cartoons. They are as dense as reality shows. Pleas reconsider (powers that be) you just don’t know how tired People are of the stupid game show and talk host.

  • Cindy Longstreth

    FOR A TALK SHOW????????? I QUIT ABC NOW!!!!!

  • Trish

    Another talk show really. I stopped watching talk shows years ago. I get sick of listening to the host give their opinions about things they don’t even know about and think the are so bright.

  • Anthony

    You cant cancel this show! If you cancel it then the only one left that I like is the Y&R!

  • Geri M.

    I’m hoping it’s a silly April Fool’s Day joke. I like
    the new story line with Tad and Cara. I like Erica and
    Caleb-it reminds me of her chemistry with Mike Roy. I miss
    Adam/Stuart but I don’t see much difference since they
    moved to L.A. I’ve watched since Tara and Phil when I was
    in college and throughout my working years. Then I got to
    watch while being a stay at home mom and during my divorce!
    It has been a constant comfort in my life.
    It has to be a joke…Please!
    Susan Lucci wouldn’t let them do that to us would she???

    • S Roy

      OMG! Don’t take the AMC out my day on ABC!
      I Love AMC!!!!!! I can’t believe they are going to cancel the soap!

      It is so disappointing to think that exec’s at ABC think viewers want another talk show over this show that has been an institution on their network for 41 years.I am so upset about this!!!It’s a BIG BIG BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!

  • http://yahoo.com Dottie

    I am tired of all the good shows being cancelled The networks have taken all the fun out of watching TV we have to pay for TV, now the people should have a say so in what shows get axed. First iwas the GL next ATWT and now AMC what is nwxt no more soaps only talk shows come on give us a break and leave well enough alone.

  • Theresa Skelaney

    I am certainly not surprised that this show is hitting the chopping block. It has stunk for a while now. Kendall is a bore, Tad has become a wimp and a bore, etc. etc. Erica needs to act her age. She had Kendall when she was 14 yrs old, but Kendall is how old? Not believable people. Kendall’s extreme thinness and whoever dresses her for the show need some rethinking. Exposing her thin body, low cut blouses with her heart operation scar always showing, a turn off. I have kept watching this show because it has become part of my viewing every day since it’s inception. When they moved production to L.A. I knew it was going to hurt. We lost Adam, perhaps he wouldn’t have left if they stayed in NY. Brooke also. Why do they remove the people we always admired the most. Dimitri…a doll. A talk show – oh geez, aren’t they boring enough? The stars to go talk about their recent movies and/or books, all glammed up while we sit in our PJ’s eating popcorn…How about bring back the movie of the day like they did in the late 60′s. A nice old movie…switch it up there execs…Give the people what they want. Not everyone has cable and can afford TCM or the other cable shows…

  • http://yahoo Christine C.

    OMG I been watching ALL MY CHILDEN when it start it hard for me I hard to see it goes. we hate T.V Talk Shows are very boreding we needed AMC in our life. I hate to let it go I’m a Die Hard fan of AMC it a big bigest mistake to let go in the fall.

  • Laura

    I am SO distraught about the show (AMC) being cancelled. I am 51 yrs old and began watching when I was 12 years old in jr. high school. These characters are a part of my life that I looked forward to following every day & now I feel like I’m losing family members. Maybe they should cancel Gen. Hosp. instead–I don’t watch it, can’t stand all the yelling & fighting & mafia on that show.

    • Hortense

      I can’t believe it. It’s like a nightmare come true.
      I hope they dont cancel my favorite soap.
      PLEASE DONT CANCEL MY SOAP THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE WATCHING!

    YOU ARE MAKING A BIG MISTAKE!!!!! ILOVE THIS SHOW!
    Im so sad, I have been watching this show since ’88.

    I sure hope this isn’t true!
    ABC….LEAVE OUR SHOW ALONE…DON’T EVEN THINK OF CANCELING IT. PLEASE DO WHATEVER IT TAKES…BUT DON’T CANCEL AMC.

    I started watching AMC with my grandmother when I would visit her in Kansas City during the summer months. All age groups like AMC and I think this soap should stay on the air indefinitely. What are you thinking ABC?! Grow some!!!!

  • http://Allmychildren.com Laura Crumb

    People lets stop ABC from canceling our show! Let’s start a petition to save our show or if they don’t, we will stop watching ABC alltogether, let’s let ourselves be heard through avenues via facebook etc….if anyone is interested in going with this, my e-mail is venussss@cox.net, let’s not sit by and watch them put on some dumb tv reality or talk show. There are too many of them, and noone watches them. I haven’t missed an AMC episode in all the 41yrs its been on the air, and I don’t intend on giving it up, so let’s go, let’s do something about it. Without people they don’t have a network!

  • Karen

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the only SOAP I watch… I’ve watched off and on for the past 35 years! The only time I didn’t watch was when I was working days. Then Thanked God for the SOAP network for rerunning episodes I missed… Please don’t Cancel the best SOAP out there! GH, OLTL have nothing on AMC! This will truly be a sad week if AMC gets canceled. PS… I think they will bring Zack Slater back… (never found a body!) Just when Kendal and Griff get serious, Zack is going to show back up…. ABC please don’t cancel the best SOAP ever! Agnes Nixon and her remarkable story telling brought to us on TV for the past 40+ years has brought housewives so much joy. It’s the book you can’t put down, best thing is that it’s never ending…. the story continues. We don’t want anymore talk shows, reality shows, or game shows! Leave AMC just where she’s at… PLEEEEEZZZZZEEE……

    What a shame, but when they started dropping the original and wonderful characters I was worried something might happen. I have watched it from day one, I was pregnant with my 2nd child, and I hate to see it go. I do not watch any other soaps.

  • jamiesummer

    NO! NO! NO! This is the ony soap I watch & has been since I was a little girl! I admit that I am now a fan of many (horribe, yet addicting) reality shows, but nothing can ever take the place of AMC in my heart & in my DVR!
    My mom got me watching the residents of Pine Valley about 26 years ago- which makes it a part of my life for longer than most people, and every car, job, pet, home, or boyfriend I’ve ever had. It’s a comfort in a chaotic world & I’m not ready to give it up! Please don’t make me!!!

  • Debbie Partridge

    All My Children has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I can remember Erica as a teenager, watching with my mom on school holidays when I was a child. I watch all the ABC soaps and AMC as much as possible. I believe it will hurt ABC to cancel a program an entire generation of women grew op with. I will not be watching another talk show. BOO to ABC!

  • Pam

    PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL AMC!!!!! I HAVE WATCHED SINCE I WAS 12 YEARS OLD. IT HAS BECOME A PART OF MY LIFE.

  • Tippie

    I heard this is just a rumor… the show will go on. But this is a great time for AMC fans to remind ABC how much they love the show. I’ve been watching it since college in the late 1970′s and it’s the ONLY soap I watch.

  • Sherri

    Move on, people. It’s a soap opera, for gosh sakes.

  • Melissa

    Sad news. It is hard to believe. I grew up in a household where women didn’t have to work and yes, watched some soaps but they also raised their children to be better adults because they were there for them … instead of the greed this country has come to by having to keep up with what their friends have and sticking kids in all-day childcare. We need to get back to more traditional ways of living. Another reality talk show I won’t be watching.

  • http://ShowbizSpy Mary J Jackson

    I started watching AMC when I was just a teen that was over 30 years ago. Please don’t take this soap off the air it will be a great un-justice for the fans of AMC. ABC’s is the only channel that I watch soaps. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THIS SOAP!

  • Melissa
  • Anita

    This is TRAGIC AMC being canceled.What is wrong with all of you EXEC?
    I have been with AMC since my kid were babies 34 years full time. before that always on my day off.. It is a get away from the real world and problems for 1 hour a day.
    I too tape all the shows to watch later that night. Since there is nothing else that is any good on tv anymore.
    A talk show.What are you thinking? I can’t be bother with them. AMC dealt with aid, cancer, death, and many more life problems that peple have. That is why it is one of the best soaps on the air.
    Wake up people DON’T TAKE THIS OFF THE AIR!

  • Carmen

    You are making a BIG mistake ABC. You all are not even thinking of all the dedicated fans over the past 40 years.

    I first started watching AMC in 1970, when my mom had broken her ankel. I loved erica and “nick Davis” My mom got me hooked on it..back then when it was only a half hour. When I was in college 8 years later, I scheduled all my classes around it.I remember the day that Erica won her emmy…I will sadly miss it.

  • Jeannette Hilpp

    I have been a fan of ALL MY CHILDREN for years and I hate to see it being cancelled. Since their move to California I have stopped watching. Some of the storylines are totally ridiculous. They need to bring it back to New York where it was filmed. Bring back the families that we have grown to know and love and tell good stories. Bring back some of the older actors and mix in the younger ones. Don’t make it all young people. ALL MY CHILDREN is a good soap. Bring it back to what Agnes Nixon had originally made it.

    • W McLamb

      WOW what a great RIDE! AMC will be missed GREATLY! I am 43 and I grew up with AMC! I have laughed and cried. AMC will TRUELY be MISSED! Hope it will be reconsidered and keep it on the air! Great stories and WONDERFUL cast.

Back in the day before DVR was invented I would tape it on my VCR. Please think about this again, there are so many wonderful storylines that can be created…would love to see Frankie and Randi starting a family…what will be come of Madison and the baby…will she and Scott become an item…what about crazy Annie and most definitely will David finally get what he deserves…please bring some closure to so many loose ends before you cancel the program and make it a wonderful memory we will never forget.

    Personally Im a Days Of Our Lives Fan. Its is the only show I watch on television, and I watch it EVERY DAY. Cancelling All My Children?? This scares me. If NBC cancels Days I will no longer watch television. Soaps are smart because they have it all. Dramas about peoples everyday lives, with romance, action, mystery, adventure, heartwarming family moments, steamy love scenes, and good old fashioned fist fights. I know to the networks it is all about marketing. Well hey networks- ask yourself this- Who purchases the products for the majority of american families? The mom. What does she like to watch? Not another tired @ss talk show. I hate talk shows. Boring. Reality shows are freaking depressing and remind me of all the things I hate about people in general. Give me a pleasant escape, where I can get my mystery, romance, action, adventure fix. I watch DOOL for all that and to stay current with the latest looks and trends. It is filmed beautifully as well. I know they have gotten cheaper on the set production, but I dont care if every other scene is filmed on the pier, I love that show. Im 31 and I’ve watched it since I was like 5. And my 83yr old granny watches it everyday too. Talk about reaching a wide audience. So networks- PLEASE KEEP SOAPS!!! You are killing us reality tv haters. There will be nothing left to watch if you kill our soaps.

    I have been watching All My Children since the beginning, which is all of my adult life. I am 59. All My Children and One Life to Live are staples in my TV watching.
    I hope the powers that be at ABC will reconsider their decision to cancel this program and replace it with a talk show.
    This soap opera provides a needed bit of unreality in my life. I would much rather watch a daytime drama than a bunch of celebrities push products we don’t need or whine about their lives.
    I have laughed and cried with the characters of All My Children for over 40 years. I will miss them as I would miss a friend who is no longer there.

    This is so sad, I am at a loss for words. I have been watching AMC since 1970. I have taped it since VCR,s came out and DVD since they arrived on the scene. I watch it every single day as soon as I get home. It has been my transition and source of relaxation forever. This is truly a loss.

  • 1luv

    Wow…I can’t believe this. I use to be so hooked on these soaps. I went to a private school and we had 1/2 days on Wednesdays, so I was home in time to catch AMC by 1pm. And don’t get me started about watching during the summers…I refused to go to summer camp b/c I didn’t want to miss my soaps (lol)!

    Ryan’s Hope, All My Children, One Life To Live, General Hospital, and Oprah…my childhood is just fading away

    Good news: Heard it from Melissa
    SoapOperaNetwork.com) — After three consecutive days of waiting to hear whether or not “All My Children” was about to get the axe from ABC, as has been speculated since Deadline’s article on the soap being in danger, executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers took the time today to assure her cast and crew that the show was not being canceled by the network.

    All my children has a huge following and has been on for over 40 years.The Networks need to cut costs elsewhere. What we really need to do is cancel all these ridiculous reality shows.Dosen’t anyone in the networks see the stupidity of reality shows? It dosen’t say much for the mentality of the american people either. I am sure other countries have a good laugh on us. Each one is worse than the other.

    I have watched this show since it started, only soap I watch. Tape it and watch of the evening. Nothing could or will replace it. Have seen many characters come and go, but am so disapointed. Reality shows, Talk show, I NEVER watch. So this really stinks. Hope somebody changes their mind. My husband likes it too. Haven’t told him yet. He will also be disapointed.

  • http://yahoo Mary

    I can’t believe that you is about to take the best soap opera created by Agnes Nixon off the air. If she was alive she would anything to keep the show on the air. Sometimes, people can make some foolish mistakes including me, but it ain’t no way I would make these talented actors/actresses leave the air. Some of these stories are based on some life, and I am begging you please keep it on the air. My favorite acto4rs are Darnell Williams(Jessie Hubbard) and Michael E. Knight (Tad Martin), and the actresses are: Jill Larson (Opal Cortland) and Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard). Please keep these talented actors and actresses a job. THANK YOU

  • http://yahoo connie aukland

    Please do not take AMC off the air. I have been watching it since it started. My husband had a lung removed in 2000 and he has been watching this soap like its his life. He will be devastated, he looks forward to watching AMC everyday.

  • http://debbielighting@eastex.net Deborah Musgrave

    This truly a sad affair for AMC to be taken off, not everybody canbe wrong. I am 56 and have watched it from day one. I watch not the first talk show, not even Ophra. If I miss one episode I watch in on soapnet. My sister and I are both fans, and she apes hers and spends a whole day catching up on weekends. What is ABC thinking, after money spent to transfer these people, and salary reductions taken to keep it alive. I watch GH will be next I guess so maybe should stop watching all of them.

  • http://drewsentertainmentblog.com Drew

    Why are they cancelling all of these day time soaps? I don’t watch any of the ones that got cancelled but I am a fan of General Hospital and really hope they don’t cancel it next.

  • Nancy

    This is a horrible mistake. For lack of decent TV evening shows we watch All My Children. Even my husband is an avid viewer.. I have watched since the birth of my first child in 83.. SO SO SAD.. Please reconsider.

  • LS

    Nooooooooo!!!!! I can’t believe my favorite soap is cancelled! I agree with other comments. There are so many rounchy reality programs on now that should be cancelled instead of All My Children! I’ve been watching AMC for over 30 years! There is got to be another way to reduce the expenses so the show can still air. I am so sad!!! AMC is my time to relax after coming home from work. Please reconsider cancelling the AMC.

    A true AMC fan!

  • Joujou

    I’m so sorry to hear that. I never watch it anyway so I will survive.

    I could not believe my eyes when I read that AMC was to be cancelled. That show has been part of my life since the early 70s. It’s my unwind after work show. I feel so bad for all the actors who moved across country just to be cancelled. And the real kicker is it’s for another talk show. Yes, that’s what we need, to watch more celebrities plugging their movies and books. Why not just revamp the show. Add more realism and a little more comedy. AMC should just regroup. Keep the same characters we’ve grown to love and just reboot and STAY ON THE AIR!!!

    I have watched All My Children since day one. There has been real issues that have been tackled on this show with real emotions. I can idetify with their turmoil because the story lines are everyday life. It would be a shame to cancel All My Children. ABC, don’t be so greedy!!!

  • Eileen

    I can’t believe that they are canceling my favorite soap. It is the only one that I watch. My aunt and I used to sit and watch it together. She is the one that got me hooked on All my Children. wtching that was my escape my me time. I don’t want to watch any more boring talk shows.

  • Anita

    I have been watching AMC since it started and I love all the charactor’s even the new ones. Please do not cancel this show. I work all day and the only TV I get to watch is the soapnet channel at night, which I pay for by the way. I am 58 years old and so many things have changed over the years, but what keeps me going is my channel six soaps.

  • Pat

    NO! NO! NO! OMG you can’t be serious. whatever you put in its place (am sure it’s some crappy talk or reality show) I will not watch. I’m sure a zillion others feel like I do. So think before you really do something stupid

  • Carita Campbell

    Unbelievable!!!! Been watching since the 5th grade before VCRs/DVRs … over summer vacations and days off school my best friend and I would watch at her house with her mom. This is the days when OLTL and GH went from 30 minutes to 45 minutes to 1 hour. Very very sad. Whats worse be replaced with crappy reality or talk shows? so sad!

  • Linda

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’ve been watching since day 1 and it’s the ONLY one I watch! The characters are all like family members. Please say it ain’t so ABC!

    do not CANCELL SOAPS THIS IS MY LIFE NOW I HAVE BEEN ATCHING SINCE 1ST BEGAN AND NOW I’M RETIRED THIS IS WHAT I DO EVERYDAY I STAY HOME 1;00 -4;00PM PLLEASEE//NOW JUST THE CHANNEL WENT OUT THIS SUCKS

  • Dusti Nicole

    Get a new story line other than the Ryan, Greelee and Kendall saga. There is room for improvement. As with OLTL they have new characters, story lines and interest. Keeping Ericka and others that are over paid and over the hill only drags the show down. The only shows I watch on ABS are AMC and OLTL.. Guess if they are canceled ABC will be removed from my satellite service.

  • Z

    Please make cuts elsewhere. I have been watching All My Children forever and it is a well produced show in all ways. Please reconsider this decision.

  • LAgirl2

    This really sucks! I can’t believe the thought process. Seriously, this is the only soap opera I watch too! When I get time. It’s a way to escape the “real” world to me… just can’t get into any other one out there. Sad Sad Sad. I will miss Pine Valley and it’s drama….

    This bites, I love that soap, maybe we can send something out to keep the show on the air

    I have been wathing since 1971, its just not right to put yet another talk show on, to watch people sit around and talk and whine and moan

    Lets pass it to facebook and get everyone to keep it on the air

  • http://showbizspy Jill

    Life will go on. People need to move on and not worry about soap operas being cancelled. Other tv shows are canceled all the time. If the show does not have the money to keep it on then they cant. Boycotting will not the situtaion. AMC is having bad financial issues and they cant stay on, just like other TV shows as I mentioned that happen to. People need to get over it and move on. I dont even watch AMC and I have read they can stay on because they dont have the money finacially.
    So everyone move and dont worry about it. I will get tired of people complaning about it or being a baby about it because of one show. Life Goes on and everyone should move on from it.

  • ERIC

    What a shame, another lame talk show, which I certainly won’t watch. I’m a long-time fan of AMC, and will miss it.
    I don’t care for talk shows, and certainly will not watch any replacement for AMC, like many viewers.
    If they were to cancel anything, they should cancel One Life to Live. While a fine program, it’s nowhere near the quality of All My Children.
    But we’ll survive. Now I’ll have one less reason to watch ABC, and the ABC news preceeding AMC.

  • Debbie

    Get rid of General Hospital already NOT All My Children

I remember all the actors that have come and gone and yet I remain. Erica and I have almost grown up together. I shall be sad, no devastated to see my favorite soap opera go away!

    Did I mention that I scheduled my college classes around AMC? Yeah, there was no way that I would be sitting in a classroom during MY SHOW!!!

    • dawn

      I too have seen AMC since its inception. I have the same feelings everyone else has, it is a sad day if ABC does this. I am sick and tired of the stupid reality/talk shows on all channels, and refuse to watch any of them.
      Shame on you ABC and the other channels that deliver tawdry shows and leave those of us in the dust. I always thought I could count on a good soap opera to lighten my day and my life, guess not.

  • http://showbizspy.com Sandy

  • http://Allmychildren.com Laura

    Okay so we need to all contact ABC like I did and tell them how you feel…….go to the Allmychildren.com website, on the bottom in blue is says “contact us” choose the show, and comment, and let them know exactly how you feel, I did, and I also called and heard that they have been getting a huge amount of feedback telling them that ppl will no longer watch ABC if they do cancel, and I told them that without us ppl they won’t have a network, so everyone contact ABC TODAY!!!

    ABC has said several times that this is not true. Cast members have quashed the erroneous report as well. Just one example.

    AMC is not being cancelled :). But now is a great time to let the network know you’d like to keep it that way. Thanks for all the support!!

  • carol

    Rumors, rumors and that is all it is. ABC has noted that it will NOT cancel the show….at least just yet. However, I can’t help but notice that over the past several years, the story lines have gone from bad to worst possible. I’ve noticed a change in some of the older characters that have been on the show for a long time and it’s as though they are just reading their lines….no enthusiasm at all. However, I still watch it but fast forward thru most of it only stopping at the story lines that I like. Whoever thought up the story line with Ricky, the so-called pastor, must be brain dead. It’s a terrible story and gives a bad rep for all pastors, et al. Even Kendall’s participation is far from stellar. At least we don’t have to put up with having the kids in the story line every day….that was a downer and a waste of time. However, if the network wants to save money, then by all means, let the veteran stars go and have nothing more than a young cast who will accept whatever money you offer them.

  • Andrea

    I am 41 and do not remmeber a time with out pine valley. I think this is a disgrace after all the actors took paycuts, moved. I feel like you are killing off a part of my life and family. It is the only one i dvr from abc. No other talk shows will last because people now a days have short attention spans and unless your Oprah it won’t work. With Opraha leaving that is too much i will ask doc for more xanax. After putting my son to bed i get a chance to unwind and get out of my own head by watching All my children. Shame on you abc.

  • Lara

    I have been watching AMC since I was a little girl over 35 years ago. When you watch a show five days a week every week for years and years it will be terribly missed. My Mom has been watching since it began 41 years ago. We have watched this show faithfully year after year. ABC does not need another talk show. How many talk shows and news shows can we take. Enough is enough. Please do not cancel AMC it is a tradition to watch it and it would be missed very much.

  • Tina

    Please do not cancel All my Children. I have watched this show every day for the last 28 years. I love this show and is the only soap opera that I watch. We definitely do not need another talk show. I tape the show every day and watch it when I get home from work.

  • Vanessa Callahan

    Please go to http://abc.go.com/site/contact-us , tell them to stop the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live.

  • Sandy

    Stay at home moms might be dwindling, but there are such wonderful devices like DVR, and good old fashion VCR’s. I tape All MY Children, and relax at night after work. Wow,what a mistake. I have no reason now to even watch ABC except
    GMA before work.

    How cruel to make the cast rearrange their whole life to move out to California, and then just dismissed like they are nothing. Will not watch ABC again except for GMA.

  • Jacki Gonzalez

    This really stinks!!! This is the only Soap I have watched for 41 years. If they take AMC off the air I am going to stop watching abc all together. See how they like those ratings. The last thing we need is another stupid talk show. I sure hope they change their minds about taking All My Children off the air.

    Thank you,

    AMC is the only rason I watch ABC anymore. It’s apparent they don’t give a s**t about their viewers and what they want. Soapnet being cancelled is the reason I am cancelling my cable. Daytime soaps are the only thing worth watching anymore. The last thing needed are more realtiy and/or talk show crap on TV. ABC is ruiining TV for me. They shoudl get rid of Brian Frons insteasd of programs millions of viewers sitll enjoy.

  • Alice

    I am 49 years old and grew up watching AMC, OLTL & GH. When I went to college, I scheduled my classes around GH :) Although I stopped watching the shows for awhile when I was working, for the past several years I have been recording AMC & OLTL and watching them at night. After a stresful day at work, I look forward to relaxing and watching the soaps. My 18 year old daughter watches OLTL with me – and the rest of our family watches by default. :) Although I can see where AMC is not as exciting as it once was, I believe ratings would go up if they had different writers and if perhaps if they did not focus so much on “Erica”. I absolutely LOVE watching One Life to Live and I love the acting and the story lines and am EXTREMELY disspointed that show is being cancelled as well. I will not be recording any talk shows or realty shows that takes their place – to watch in the evening. I will also cancel our cable subscription that includes Soap Net – which I recently added. I am very disappointed that you are cancelling these shows. Since Oprah’s show is ending too, I believe ABC will be making a huge mistake cancelling these soaps. I know I will not be watching shows on ABC very much, if at all, in the future if this happens….

    What can i say that hasn’t been said already? I can’t believe that ABC is going 2 cancel All My Children & One Life To Live! I’m still hoping that ABC will change their mind. Yes there has been a change in AMC & OLTL but has anyone consider4 thed looking into getting new writers 4 the show instead of canceling it? I can’t help but feel that ABC’s ratings are going 2 drop once AMC & OLTL is canceled. C’mon ABC … are you reading what everyone is saying about not watching ABC any more???

  • Quin

    Tv just aint Tv no more! ABC YALL LAME FOR THIS! Ok if oprah gone off the air why bother this one! Hell what happens to SoapNet

  • http://abc.com Robert Gallup

    ABC is making a big mistake. Do you really think that I am going to record some reality show to see later. Your canceling of ALL MY CHILDREN will mean that I now will not be watching anything you produce. The View is just listening to some haggling women of a particular political persuasion and something I certainly would not record to watch later. Who records reality shows. Aren’t there enough food and health shows already. I have been a faithful viewer of All My Children for 35 years and have always looked forward to viewing it in the evening after I record it on my TIVO. Just because Erica wants to retire shouldn’t mean the show should be canceled. Other people have retired or even died and the show goes on. You replace actors all the time to fill positions that are vacated. A replacement for Susan Lucci could be found that might even be better to play her character Erica. For sure I will not record your new Chew to view later, as other channels have better shows to watch than some stupid food or health show. YOU ARE MAKING A BIG MISTAKE. I am a male that has watched AMC since 1980. I for sure will boycott ABC in the future for making such a bad decision. That was the only good soap you had, and now for monetary reasons, you have decided I want to watch a food or health show. How stupid.

  • Peggy

    Taking AMC and OLTL off the air is ignorant!! There’s so many talk shows and reality shows on the air now, it is sickening. I won’t be watching ABC anymore, even the news, etc. I will change networks altogether. I’ve watched these shows since I was a teen. If you are going to take a soap off the air, it should be General Hospital. It has gotten sooooooo bad. I quit watching that a long time ago. So, you take the good ones off and leave the crap. There are way too many talk shows on the way it is. The View sucks. Take it off!!! Ellen sucks!!! Take it off!!! And now you are going to put more of this crap on. I will definitely be watching another network. You are making such a HUGE mistake!!! I’d rather not even watch tv if it’s going to be talk and reality shows. Goodbye ABC!!!!!!!

    I am very upset and I miss my AMC family. I have been part of the family since the first episode. I not longer watch ABC during the AMC time frame and I will stop watch during the OLTL time frame when it is pulled. I am now watching other stations, during this time. I am not going back to AMC, since they care more about the money the time frame rakes in than they do the views of their programs, and how pulling such a beloved program might hurt the viewers. I am going to boycott the network now and for good. Hopefully, other networks will catch on that they cannot just pull a program to make the BIG BUCKS! ABC could have going to adding one, two, three more commercials that would help support these soaps, and a simple explaination to the views would have told them why more ads, I am sure they would have they viewers would have gladly watched more ads. I hope others will join me in boycotting ABC.
