All My Children Ends

The legendary soap opera All My Children ends Friday after more than 40 years. Originally a half-hour show, AMC premiered in January 1970, it was later expanded to an hour. Thousands upon thousands of episodes followed.Earlier this month, Susan Lucci, 64, who has played Erica Kane on the soap since 1970, vented her frustration with the show's end in a new epilogue the star added to the paperback version of her autobiography, All My Life: A Memoir.

Lucci said ABC exec Brian Frons aided its demise by pushing aside creator Agnes Nixon in 2008 and appointing writers who'd provide “sub-par" content.
