One live to lose
Seems like famous, long running soap operas are being cancelled.
Which you might say, this might surprise you.
One life to live, and All my Children
This was a shock to everyone especially since one of the soap opera’s actually moved to Los Angeles in 2009 to revamp the show and make it more watchable. Seems like that failed.
In other news, Hoover(vacuum) has decided to pull all their ads because ABC has decided to cancel both shows.
