As we all know, four weeks ago Brian Frons, President, Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group, visited the set of ABC's "All My Children" to announce the cancellation of the 41-year-old soap live and in person to cast members while also canceling "AMC's" sister soap "One Life to Live," whose cast members learned via video feed of the 42-year-old daytime dramas fate.
