ABC has decided to pull the plug on two of the network's longest-running soap operas ... One Life To Live and All My Children.

All My Children aired for 41 years and One Life To Live survived a 43-year run. Kelly Ripa, who met her husband Mark Consuelos on AMC, said the following:

    "All My Children means so much more to me than any place, because [Mark and I] met there, we had our children there, it was a big part of our lives. I think that to cancel a show that has been on television for so many years, what are you going to replace it with? I mean I just don’t know. I just feel like it’s such a training ground for so many actors."

ABC announced both soaps will be replaced with a food-related show called The Chew and a lifestyle show called The Revolution.

OLTL's final episode will air in January 2012. AMC will wrap it up in September 2011.
