I'm hearing the last episode of All My Children will be September 23, and reportedly the serial will be getting a two-hour send off! Keep checking back with Daytime Confidential as more information becomes available!

Wow, it ALMOST seems as if ABC actually gives a damn about this show. ALMOST..........

P.S- I will be watching the finale with a heavy heart, just as I did with GL and ATWT!!!

Sigh. Sad

Smile At least the Mouse dropping network is giving AMC some respect. I much rather have it continue but that isn't happening because ABC refusing offers from other entertain industries to purchase their soaps. I am enjoying AMC more then OLTL, with Anges and Lorraine back I am loving how things are coming together. Dastardly David is going to sleep with Jane is going to be a fun ride. LOVING this move.

Hey don't fool yourself. I'm sure OLTL's finale will get reduced to 30 mins and then the day of, ABC will announce it's been preempted.

The show certainly deserves it but even more it deserves NOT to be canceled.

ABC thinks they are slick. To me this sounds like another PR move for damage control. They appear to respect the soap "now" so that the fans will stop writing and expressing their anger about it being canceled. They're hoping to get some heat taken off of them because they expected all the talk to be strictly nostalgic by now with all the returns and the interviews in Soap Opera Digest, other soap outlets and by doing fluff pieces with Kelly Ripa on our local news programs about how the show should end. Bully for them it's not. Fans are still angry, on fire, writing, campaigning and making their voices heard.

Sorry. Some of us are still fighting and won't quit no matter how much they would like us too.

2 hours? Does that mean it'll go from 1-3 (with OLTL being pre-empted), or would it air from noon-2?

I know it’s a longshot, but I do agree with apple and keanna. I hope that OLTL gets the same. If not, well… it will NOT shock the shyte out of me, as usual. The stepchild of ABC is continously going LOUDLY into the night already. I hope with the AMC finale, RyJerk McDouchey skips his daily tree of life fruit, ages rapidly, turns into dust before Green’s eyes, and Leo comes back to comfort her and they go half on a baby … HEY, a girl can certainly dream… even if I need to wake the hell up and face facts...

Yes.

I've come to terms that AMC is almost over, I want them to go out with a two hour show pleasing as many fanbases as possible.

I guess I want a two hour finale for OLTL, but I wouldn't lose sleep if they didn't. Your show is getting an extra four months on the air, that's enough compensation for not getting a grand two hour finale.

OMIGAWD! I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not playing favorites here. I'd like a proper finale for ALL of the ABC shows … including GH which I loathe. It’s inevitable given ABC's tactics as of late, and they ALL deserve the same amount of respect, IMHO, given their years on the air, for the actors, and fans....

In a dream world, The Chew would tank as soon as it premiered, and ABC would agree to a 30 mins AMC and a 30 mins OLTL for at least the next two years..like I said, a dream

SoapStud, rumour has it ABC is keeping OLTL in its back pocket in case The Chew tanks. This could be why we're seeing a mass exodus of veterans BEFORE the finale: they could be trying to "trim the fat" and reduce the budget (while simultaneously re-focusing on newer, inexpensive characters) should the series continue.

This needs to be the two hours that rocked the world. I mean it better be so good that It makes a grown man cry. But I trust that grandma Agnes and Aunt Lorraine can pull it off.

@Soap_Stud: Even in a modern world they could spin off some characters or families into their own full fledged 30 to 40 minute web series making deals with hulu and/or Netflix or others. They have the audience already there and could start with 13 episode seasons and take it from there. I see the various series now:

-The World According to Erica: About Erica Kane her daughters. The life of a modern day business woman, the loves, losses, and drama both corporate and personal in the lives of Erica and her family while trying to run Enchantment. (This could also become a Lifetime TV series primetime drama or even on the O network)

-The Hubbard's: About the life and struggles of this prominent African American family. It would be like The Cosby's accept with non-comedic drama and long term storylines much like Soul Food had. (With this one they could also sell as a primetime TV Drama series on BET or the Black Family Channel)

These could work because they each focus on the most popular media friendly characters and families from the show.

It shouldn't be going off the air in the first place

^^ You need to accept the fact that it IS ending. How long can you live in denial?

It would preempt OLTL (since it can't force the affiliates to air it in the preceding hour, which isn't network time). That means one less hour of OLTL, which doesn't exactly make me cheer. If they give OLTL a two-hour finale, you can be damn sure it will preempt GH and not The Chew.

(shaking fist) Frons!!!

I don't know if it would be unfair if OLTL didn't get a 2 hour finale. It has 3 or 4 more months to write a ending than AMC has.

A 2 hr finale is no big deal. I would rather abc agree to sell. They are not going to sell despite all their claims they would. .....It is all pr stuff. .....

A two hour finale - so what? ABC is playing a game, trying to calm upset fans. How about a two year renewal instead of a two hour finale? ABC is dead to me once the soaps are gone. CHEW on that!
