Good question. Fuel to this fire was lit by Nelson Branco, who writes a column for the Canadian version of TV Guide, reports Soap Central. His basic thesis is that ABC, between "One Life to Live" and "All My Children" could only save one of those shows, and the one they have chosen to save is "All My Children."
An ABC spokesperson officially said in a statement,“The only upcoming move ‘One Life to Live’ is making is to the ‘All My Children’ stage after that series relocates to Los Angeles. This will give ‘One Life to Live’ more room and increase their production value.”
