ABC Cancels 2 Popular Soap Operas

It's a sad day for soap opera fans. ABC announced Thursday that the sun will set permanently in the fictional towns of Pine Valley and Llanview as All My Children and One Life to Live wrap up for good. AMC's last episode – which was rumored last month to be on the horizon – will be in September, while OLTL will end in January 2012. At the very least, fans needn't worry they'll be stuck with controversial, Lost-style endings – producers promise a satisfying conclusion to both soaps' legacies/Sara Hammel, People. More here.
