ABC TV bosses have opted to replace the beloved daytime dramas with two talk shows as part of a cost-cutting initiative.

All My Children, which premiered in 1970, will end in September (11), while One Life to Live, which debuted in 1968, will end in January (12).

Both shows have rich histories of giving big stars their break - Ryan Phillippe, Marcia Cross and Tommy Lee Jones got their starts on One Life to Live, while Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Oscar winner Melissa Leo and Josh Duhamel were among the stars who once graced the All My Children cast.
