Agnes Nixon Speaks About Her Soaps Being Cancelled








ABC’s decision to cancel All My Children and One Life to Live saddens me greatly. I treasure the decades that the worlds of Pine Valley and Llanview were brought to life by our talented casts and crews. I appreciate that the network allowed our teams to break new dramatic ground and always supported our commitment to the honest portrayal of social issues. We hope we have entertained our viewers and perhaps even educated them along the way.
My deep gratitude goes to all the talented people who have contributed to All My Children and One Life To Live over these many years; we were always family, made up of writers, producers, directors, actors, crews. Equally important in that family are our loyal fans who shared this journey with us. Although ABC has concluded there is no longer a place for our shows on their network, I will do everything possible to keep them alive. God bless you all.

Classy lady. Doesn't ABC own them and anyone who would want to continue the show would have the buy the rights? I think that ABC wants them gone from the airways completely never to be seen again. If Frons couls get away with it he would have them gone tomorrow.

I have been watching All My Children and General Hospital for almost 25 years now. I am sad to hear ABC is cancelling All My Children! (I'm sure GH is not far behind) I see this new trend from other channels, but predict and HOPE this will be a FAILURE on ABC's part. HOPEFULLY, the SOAP channel can keep them alive, but probably not :-(

Agnes is always classy. I hope she finds a way to save the soaps. They are too good and filled with amazing talent. Another network should try to pick them up!

The ABC Website said that General Hospital Will NOT be cancelled, It will stay on the Air.

I am so-o-o-o hoping that another network will in fact pick up both All My Children and One Life to Live. Ms. Nixon, if there is anything at all the fans can do to help you please post it. You must know we will be here to help you as you have been with us through these many, many years! Could it be that the "power" of the fans can really make a difference?!? I'm will to try...just tell me what to do!!

I will not watch another cooking show. The things they make call for ingredients not available in my local markets,or are cost prohibitive
