(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...
