We guess people are having a hard time letting go!

Now that long-running soap operas All My Children and One Life To Live have officially gotten the axe by ABC, soap opera fans started a bit of a riot outside of the the Lincoln Center yesterday (above), protesting the new new daytime line-up - which will now feature reality series The Chew and The Revolution - while advertisers and upfront guests entered the building yesterday!

According to a brochure some are handing out, the replacement shows are merely "glorified infomercials appropriate for late-night basic cable channels, not for a major broadcast network."

Yikes!

Nobody likes to see their favorite shows canceled, but it's a part of life, guys!

Let's try and suck it up and move on, shall we?

Officially Cancelled! R.I.P. All My Children AND One Life To Live

abc soaps canceled

At least we've still got General Hospital

Back in February, we learned that ABC's soap operas were in danger of getting canceled.

It would appear that the danger was VERY real, because ABC announced today that it will be giving the axe to both All My Children and One Life to Live.

All My Children will end in September after 41 years on the air, and One Life to Live will end in January after a 43-year run!

The soaps will be replaced by food-themed show The Chew, and health/lifestyle show The Revolution.

Here's what ABC president Brian Frons had to say about the network's decision to cancel these landmark shows:

“While we are excited about our new shows and the shift in our business, I can’t help but recognize how bittersweet the change is. We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming these days. They are telling us there is room for informative, authentic and fun shows that are relatable, offer a wide variety of opinions and focus on ‘real life’ takeaways."

More from Frons about the two axed soap operas:

"They are iconic pieces of television that have made an indelible mark on our culture’s history."

We're sad to hear about the ending of these shows, but we're glad to hear that GH won't be going anywhere. We need at least ONE soap opera in our lives!

How do U feel about the end of All My Children? One Life to Live?
