Susan Lucci has portrayed Erica Kane for 41-years – debuting during the shows 10 episode in January 1970 according to her book “All My Life,” and along with millions of viewers across the country she watched the soap that launched her career end its run on ABC earlier this afternoon. Ever the relevant personality (despite what ABC says), Lucci shares her thoughts with her Facebook friends and followers on the final episode of “AMC” and gives some minor hope as to what lies ahead for the soap opera in the coming months.

I just finished watching the last episode of All My Children – a very emotional time for me. I am so grateful to “The View” and ABC for their beautiful tribute show for ‘All My Children’ and Agnes Nixon. And to Agnes and to ABC for the incredible opportunity to play the amazing Erica Kane. At the center of all my gratitude is you, the fans. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for always being there for us, for spending all those days with us in Pine Valley and for bringing so much sunshine into my life.

Let’s hope we all get to see more of Pine Valley and the beloved characters Agnes Nixon has created. Today’s episode ended with quite a cliff hanger – and I really want to see what happens next!

Rick Rowell/ABC

( — After 41 years on television (41 on ABC and 11 on ABC and SOAPnet), “All My Children” has closed its final chapter in broadcast television history with an ending that may please many or anger a lot, but its ending did one thing that was impossible for a soap to accomplish just a few short years ago – tracking the reactions of viewers as it came to a close.

Thanks to the power of social networking service Twitter, “All My Children” and Erica Kane (portrayed by Susan Lucci) found themselves both trending across the United States shortly after the last episode of the drama series aired today on the ABC Television Network for the final time. Also trending was the word “Erica” in some cities across the country.

For a soap opera that was deemed irrelevant by its network after research data found daytime viewers wanted more talk shows, the end of the drama series and its connection to relevant aspects of everyday life such as Twitter only shows that research can be miscalculated and misleading. All it takes is some time and effort and something old can become new again. A good example of this is Ford, which discontinued its flagship Taurus brand a few short years ago due to lack of sales only to re-design the product and find sales as good as ever.

What follows are just a few examples of the cities across the United States that were talking about the soap after its final scene aired:
