All My Children Final Episode To Air In September


All My Children, the long running soap opera starring Susan Lucci, will air its final episode in September 2011 after the show was axed by Abc bosses, reports the UK's Daily Mail. All My Children has been on the network's daytime line-up for more than 40 years, but President BRIAN FRONS said "Viewers are looking for different types of programming these days".
The soap opera 'One Life to Live' has also been cancelled, leaving General Hospital as Abc's only daytime drama. Soap operas are regarded as a fading genre in the world of television and ratings for both programmes have slumped in the past decade. The final episode of 'All My Children' will air this September, with 'One Life To Live' wrapping up in January next year. 'All My Children', set in the fictional 'Pine Valley' in Philadelphia averages around 2.5 million viewers a day. 'One Life to Live' averages around 2.6 million viewers, a number that was boosted slightly by the recent cameo appearance of Khloe Kardashian.
Speaking recently about the cancellation of 'All My Children', EMMY AWARD winner Susan Lucci said, "It's been a fantastic journey". A specific date for the show's finale has yet to be announced.
