(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- As we reported on Friday, May 20, fans of canceled "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" took the news of ABC's upcoming Affiliates Board meeting to heart and called in to their local ABC stations in droves in response to our story demanding that the network change course in its plans for a "Brand New Day" in daytime starting this fall with "The Chew" and "The Revolution." Organizers of the fan inspired campaign to save the two soaps issued a press release to ABC affiliates and news outlets with the prime target being board Chairman Bill Hoffman.Unfortunately TheWrap, as they did in April when NBC launched "The Voice" to stellar numbers last month only to rerun the shows debut episode the following night with much lower ratings to which the publication claimed brought the network its newest bomb, misconstrued Hoffman's comments in their article referencing...

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The recently cancelled ABC soap "One Life to Live" does what it does best again this week, by taking a tongue-in-check approach in addressing its own impending demise. Tuesday's (May 24) episode begins with Blair Cramer (Kassie DePaiva) reciting a few bars from the show's 1986-91 "Tour of Llanview" opening theme song, which has arguably become one of the show's most revered openings among fans, only to stop midway through the Paebo Bryson theme to remark that it was "too sad" to continue. This comes in light of last month's cancellation of the show by ABC. DePaiva last sung that particular theme during "One Life's" three-day "Starr X'd Lovers" musical event in 2010, when it served as a temporary opening for the show. Mark Lawson (Brody), Brittany Underwood (ex-Langston) and Jason Tam (ex-Markko) also recorded versions of the theme at that time, all of which are available for...

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- It has been a little over a month since Disney's ABC Television Network canceled daytime soaps "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." As is the case with most primetime series upon their cancellation notices, there had been hope that another network would pick up one or both daytime programs. In fact there were rumors that NBC was interested in airing the programs with Sony Pictures Television producing. The rumor, which began shortly after Deadline.com reported that the producer of NBC's "Days of our Lives" and CBS' "The Young and the Restless" was interested in snapping up top talent from ABC shortly after the stars received their walking papers on Thursday, April 14, heated up as the weeks went on with no response from Sony Pictures Television. Soap Opera Network reached out to representatives from the production powerhouse and we're sorry to say soap fans, it...

As the news went viral, including on Soap Opera Network, "All My Children's" official Fan Club President Debbie Morris was contacted by the actor who claimed he did not have a Twitter account and did not tweet those messages. Whatever the case, the Twitter birdie was on to something that many fans predicted as a strong possibility once news of the cancellation broke. In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest covering Summer Previews, several sources have confirmed that fans should "expect multiple cast members to exit before September finale to make way for returnees and a focus on long-term characters."On Thursday,...
