"One Life to Live" gets 'canceled' for the second time in seven months as Prospect Park breaks the hearts of the show's loyal fanbase.

Prospect Park decides to move forward with plans for "One Life to Live," while delaying the launch of "All My Children" for the time being. But why the sudden change of plans?

With "One Life to Live" nearing the end of its run on ABC Daytime, the list of returning former cast members is increasing. And, while the list is impressive, it is lacking one important ingredient for long-time fans of the soap.

"One Life to Live" parodies "Look Who's Talking," but does it mean the end of Llanview as we know it?

"All My Children's" television run comes to an end, "The Chew" debuts in its place, and "One Life to Live" asks fans to sample Ford's wiener.

"All My Children's" replacement show "The Chew" debuts today, just three days after "AMC" aired its final episode on ABC, and I can't help myself in wishing it would just go away. No, it isn't the show or what it is all about. In a perfect world I'd care to watch it from time to time, after all we all have to cook good and healthy meals don't we? But it is the way the network went about handling "The Chew" which included non-stop advertising during "AMC's" final weeks on television along with non-stop advertising on soap opera centered websites including Soap Opera Network that I find myself saying "what a way to spit on your audience."

With the Prospect Park era about to begin for "One Life to Live," the show appears to be in better shape than its sister soap "All My Children."

Just another abnormal week of "One Life to Live."

What happens when real life interferes with reel life?

What started out as a typical week that began on July 25 ended up being one of the worst in Soap Opera Network history, but you wouldn't have known it from a behind the scenes perspective.
