What will Casey watch now?

Bad news for my good buddy Casey, his favorite shows just got cancelled...

NEW YORK (AP) - ABC canceled two of its three soap operas on Thursday, consigning "One Life to Live" and "All My Children" - and Susan Lucci, daytime's most famous actress - to television history.

The move leaves "General Hospital" as ABC's only daytime drama, one of only four that will remain on ABC, CBS and NBC's daytime schedule.

Soap operas have slowly been fading as a TV force, with many of the women who made up the target audience now in the work force. In place of the two canceled dramas, ABC will air shows about food and lifestyle transformations

Ratings were bad and the average age of the person watching was 57... not exactly the key audience you want if you're a television network. So-long Soaps!
