Well, both AMC and One Life To Live are being cancelled to make way for more reality (cheaper no doubt) programmes.

I used to watch AMC when I was in the US a few years ago and thought it and OLTL were popular. So I was surprised they both only get about 2.5 million viewers. The actors were only told 20 minutes before the press release. It's a cruel business soap operas.

I know they are daft and unbelievable but more chat shows and cookery programmes? The UK is awash with such programmes.

I used to love the Young and the Restless so hope it will be safe and sometimes wonder what the characters are up to now!

Soaps became a dying breed in the early 90's when the networks stopped caring . Every frigging show that I've loved has been thrown to the wolves (Another World, Guiding Light, As The World Turns) :sad: Gosh , this is so disappointing. I watched AMC a long time ago and gave it up although I still pop in on my days off to check out the happenings and I started digging OLTL once CBS gave the axe to ATWT... I guess this is it for me since I can't be bothered with Y&R , GH and B&B although I fucking love Susan Flannery AKA Stephanie Forrester :lol:

Or vasectomy ;)

Still surprised to hear about the cancellations. I think AMC was on 40 years or something. I think Susan Lucci is the oldest woman I would bang.

Was never a big fan of either of these 2, or any of the other soaps to have been cancelled in the last few years. I've been a fan of Y&R for a long time, and they have been around at the top in terms of ratings for quite a long time now (almost 25 years which is amazing). Their sister soap, Bold and the Beautiful, is #2 now though I never did take much liking to it apart from a few characters.
