Long-running series to be replaced by talk shows

ABC provided more evidence Thursday that daytime serials are an endangered species on broadcast TV: The Alphabet formally announced its long-expected plan to ax two long-running sudsers, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," over the next nine months.

Both series will be replaced by chatshows, one a food-themed series from Gordon Elliot, exec producer of "Paula Deen's Home Cooking," and another a health/lifestyle show from 3 Ball Prods., producer of "The Biggest Loser."

I guess all my children have grown up and one life to live is over. What am I going to do without soap operas. Such a tragedy...

They are replacing them with ANOTHER FOOD show and some health show? Gee wonder whose idea this was!
ABC is obviously being pulled into the political socialism of telling us how to eat and how to live.

You are so silly. What ou call "socialism" is actually rampant capitalism.

There is not a lot of money made on daytime TV; so why pay a staff of writers and stable of actors when you can get a few ninnies off the street to sit at a desk (or stove) for 1/100th of the cost.
