Here is a comparison of the last five cancelled soap operas.
Just before we post the dailies, which will provide a clearer picture of "One Life to Live's" final week on television, ABC has revealed that the 43-year old soap ended its run as daytime's 5th most watched program in total viewers (3,120,000), while ranking a strong second in Women 18-49 viewers (784,000) for the week of January 9-13, 2012. Only 94,000 Women 18-49 viewers separated "One Life to Live" from tying "The Young and the Restless" in that category. In Women 18-49 rating "OLTL" had a 1.2 compared to "Y&R's" 1.4. The canceled ABC soap beat its former network and studio sibling "The View" in all key ratings categories except total viewers.
On the heels of a cancellation announcement and a failed online venture, it was announced that successful former Executive Producer, Frank Valentini, and former Head Writer, Ron Carlivati, of "One Life to Live" were hired for the same positions at a struggling "General Hospital." Rattling many "GH" fans, in recent days, has been the announcement that at least several major "OLTL" stars will be showing up in Port Charles as their Llanview alter egos. Carlivati insists to insiders that "GH" fans need not worry as he has no intention of turning their soap into "OLTL." To that end, the show-runners have also announced the return of three of "GH's" most legendary performers and characters - Finola Hughes, Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms as Anna, Robert and Holly - for extended runs on the last-standing ABC daytime drama.
Former "All My Children" leading men Cameron Mathison and Thorsten Kaye are scheduled to help heat up the primetime schedule later this winter. Mathison is scheduled to hit the sheets with one of televisions original housewives on the last season of ABC's "Desperate Housewives." Meanwhile, Kaye will show up on NBC's highly anticipated mid-season replacement, the musical drama "Smash," where his character will turn the temperature up for a determined Broadway producer going through some rough personal and professional times.

After scheduling conflicts reportedly kept her from reprising her signature role of housewife turned hooker Karen Wolek on "One Life to Live" in show's final months on the air, Judith Light is finally coming back to Llanview...sort of. On Friday, January 13, just three hours before the final "One Life" episode airs, Light will set down on "The View" with several of her former co-stars to recall some of her fondest memories of the soap she called home from 1977-1983.
