Coming in as my number 2 favorite daytime soap opera is All My Children. It first aired in the early 1970's and went off in 2010 or 2011 due to low ratings. At one time had a 30 % male viewership which was a first for any soap opera. This soap was written and produced by Agnes Nixon who also wrote and produced One Life To Live and Loving. In the opening to All My Children she wrote this, The Great and the Least The Rich and the Poor The Weak and the Strong In Sickness and in Health In Joy and Sorrow In Tragedy and Triumph You are ALL MY CHILDREN

I followed All My Children at different periods in my life. I recorded it in the 80s. You can see old episodes on youTube and it's funny to look at the styles & remember the storylines. I started to get back into it when they restarted it online, but it unfortunately didn't last long.

They didn't handle the online version well and gave no chance to improve. If you watched in the 80s, you must remember Jenny & Greg.

AMC was my favorite. Low ratings was just an excuse to cancel the show. ABC wanted rid of it and sabotaged the show as they did One life to Live. Agnes Nixon passed a few months ago.
