I am a big All My Children fan, even though I don't watch everyday. I watched it growing up with my Mom (we would tape and watch after school/work) and I still catch it about once or twice a week when I am home eating lunch. I do think it is silly that protesters are out and about in front of the studios. Shows can't air forever - Move on already - there are much bigger things going on in the world today. But I do agree that it is crazy to replace an actual show, soap opera or not, with more reality TV! NO MORE REALITY Television!!!!
We guess people are having a hard time letting go!
Now that long-running soap operas All My Children and One Life To Livehave officially gotten the axe by ABC, soap opera fans started a bit of a riot outside of the the Lincoln Center yesterday (above), protesting the new new daytime line-up - which will now feature reality series The Chew and The Revolution - while advertisers and upfront guests entered the building yesterday!
According to a brochure some are handing out, the replacement shows are merely "glorified infomercials appropriate for late-night basic cable channels, not for a major broadcast network."
Nobody likes to see their favorite shows canceled, but it's a part of life, guys!
