I think it’s very sad with all the television that is on that they picked such programing to cancel. AMC and OLTL are awesome soaps. I have been watching for years. It is fun entertainment. It also focused on important topics, abuse, rape, eating disorders, peer pressure, bullying and dealing with coming out and being gay.
I enjoyed and look forward to watching both shows. Both soaps have such creative and talented actors. It’s not just the writers who make the show it is the team as a whole who brings it and makes it what it is. I think it’s extremely sad to disappoint so many viewers with such a decision as cancelling to major well liked soaps. Just not right. Many thousands and thousands of fans who tune in daily. You have gained many a faithful fans who have been dedicated for decades. Never mind the many jobs lost as well due to such a decision. I dont think it’s right. It is refreshing to see a different kind of television besides the norm that is on these days. Woman like soaps. Woman are home and they are your major viewers. We enjoy soaps. I think there is way to much medical shows and cop programs, and lawyer type shows on. Every time you turn around a new show based on those topics. All the same focus. But Soaps they focus on so much more. Keep the SOAPS !!! PLEASE. Give the viewers what they want. We like and enjoy the SOAPS. Reason why they have been so succesful for decades.
Storylines and the talented actors and the fans who love watching! :o) Please do the right thing. Keep AMC and OLTL going.

I am appaulled by the news I’m hearing that OLTL is being cancelled. I have watched OLTL for 19 years or more. I will not support any other Daytime soap once OLTL is off the air. I appreciate all the hard work that the producers. behind the scenes crews last but surely not the least the actors/actressses that put in a whole lot of dedication to their art & fans to keep us glued to the show for so so long. Some of us have been watching longer than others but we share the same sadness. I am so so upset over this news. Television will never be the same again.

I can’t believe it. Who wants to watch another food show. I’ve watched All My Children since I was 12 I feel like I just lost my bestfriends. Hopefully they will show up on another TV channel or cable channel.

I’m still upset over this. I can’t believe they did this. I have been watching abc soaps since for 30+ years. I’m just so numb right now, don’t know what think anymore. I feel so sorry for all the actress/actors of both shows. My favorite is OLTL and I can’t imagine them not being on t.v. I will not watch any talk shows or cooking show. That is just not going to happen. Fans are in an uproar right now about this. This one is hard to take. I hope that another Network picks them up or something. Brian Frons need to be fired plain and simple.

I agree that this idiot Brian Frons should be fired. It’s bad enough listening to those cackling hens on the View, which I would never watch, but to replace two outstanding soaps with this Crap called the Chew and the Revolution is being comprehension. Don’t worry come spring this time next year, they will realize what a disaster it was taking these soaps off the air. I know I won’t tune into ABC to watch this garbage. As a matter of fact this was the only reason I watched ABC. the rest of their programming sucks!!!!

I want you all to know that we are fighting to keep the soaps on the air! We do not want to see AMC or OLTL end and have all of you wonderful actors be out of your job you love so much. You are wonderful actors, none of you deserve this, and us fans sure don’t deserve to have these shows taken away, especially when most of us have been watching since childhood. My mom and I have set up a group on facebook, we are sending complaints, signing petitions and everything to do everything we can to change this decision! Please pass this on to everyone at AMC & OLTL for me, and if you ever are on facebook, our group is called SAVE ABC SOAPS. We love you.

DON’T Cancel OLTL. I DVR it or watch on abc.com. I don’t think I was counted in the 2.6 million that watch. Many more watch it. After a 16 hour day of work and kids, I like to be taken away and entertained by OLTL. They make me laugh, sometimes cry. I never have to worry about stupid reruns or finding something to watch. Brian Frons has no idea what OLTL means to the fans. He obviously is not connected to the fans. Bring it back or lose an ABC watcher!!

This is the worst decision ABC has ever made. I think they are more interested in $$$, then they are about the Millions of Viewers who watch these programs, (and HAVE watched for 20, 30, and 40 years.)
I don’t believe it has ANYTHING to do with ‘Lack Of viewers” MILLIONS of people continue to watch AMC and OLTL..And ALWAYS WILL.
It’s all about producing a cheap reality show, and making more money for THEMSELVES.
I believe that with every inch of my being.
I’m mad, as I am sure millions of your fans are.
These shows are so much a part of AMERICA,they have always been here from one generation to another..
Today, I am very angry with Disney, abc,,and If this actually happens …I wil boycott EVERYTHING DISNEY…and ALL abc programs. And I will encourage everyone else to do so as well…(Although i don’t think I will have to push anyone, they will most likely do so, on their own).
Thanks,

I am so very sad that AMC & OLTL have been cancelled. OLTL is the best show on the ABC lineup as each episode is so entertaining! I will not watch the replacement shows. Very stupid decision, ABC.

This is definitely a HUGE mistake. Not all of us wish to watch food shows. Even if
we did, I would only turn to the Food Network where the fabulous and famous cooks
have been cooking for the last decade. I won’t be tuning in to see your new shows
because it’s very unfair to the fans of so many years as myself i”ve been watching now
since 1964 by taping and DVR”s. To just up and end good shows like One Life To Live.
it saddens my heart. I will say in the future you will be wanting to return to DayTIme
Soaps. You will be looking for great actors like Jerry Ver Dorn and Robert Woods
and if they tell you NOWAY you deserve that……….Not HAPPY here, Not HAPPY
at ALL!!!

LINDA
LINDA

I feel this is a HUGE Mistake!!! Who wants a cooking and talk show. We all
ready have that with FOOD NETWORK inwhich I dearly Love, and THE VIEW.
IF I want to watch a show regarding these subjects that is what i will watch,
NOT your new shows………..what’s wrong w/u people . Trying to replace
Jerry Ver Dorn and Robert Wood with a cooking channel. GIve me a Break here!
So unfair to us devoted fans since 1964. I’m 60 years so and still LOVING my
soap. You had better make the ending the way it should BE!! REALLY GREAT!!!

I have commented on just about every site I can find about how poor of a decision this is to cancel these shows….but I am thinking it is not going to do any good because the public is apparently not listened to!!!!!

I just found out today that AMC is being cancelled. I began watching the show in January 1970 and have watched almost every day since. When I can’t be home to watch , I tape it (yes, I still have a VHS tape). It’s been my one daily escape from all the pressures in my work and sometimes in life. I’m not a fan of more talk shows or cooking shows. It’s doubtful I’ll be watching the replacements. I guess I’ll have more time to read. I’ll miss this show.

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
