Agnes Nixon Releases Statement

Entertainment Weekly has posted Agnes's statement.  And this is why we love her so!  “ABC’s decision to cancel All My Children and One Life to Live saddens me greatly. I treasure the decades that the worlds of Pine Valley and Llanview were brought to life by our talented casts and crews. I appreciate that the network allowed our teams to break new dramatic ground and always supported our commitment to the honest portrayal of social issues. We hope we have entertained our viewers and perhaps even educated them along the way. My deep gratitude goes to all the talented people who have contributed to All My Children and One Life To Live over these many years; we were always family, made up of writers, producers, directors, actors, crews. Equally important in that family are our loyal fans who shared this journey with us. Although ABC has concluded there is no longer a place for our shows on their network, I will do everything possible to keep them alive. God bless you all.”  And thank you Agnes!

Agnes is a class act. And the entertainment business no longer is.

Frons isn't worthy of wiping her shoe, and he's made a horrid mess of her shows.

I can only hope that Karma bits him in that big fat ass of his, and does it soon.

Daytime television has changed and not for the better. Civility is now just a word in the dictionary. I only wish that the shows could have stayed as character driven as they were back in the 80's and 90's, however it was always nice to pop in to Pine Valley and know that Erica, Tad, Jesse and Angie and the rest of it's residents were there to welcome me. They were my constant.

I want to thank Ms Nixon and the entire cast and crew of All My Children for being a part of my family for all of these years. I will miss you.

hmmmmmaybe Oprah or some other network would pick up AMC. Wouldn't that be a great thing.......I know, probably just a pipe dream, but at this point, that's all we have....
