Hard to believe that six months ago, One Life to Live aired its last episode on January 13th, 2012. Oh, if only ABC could turn back the clock and their terrible decision to cancel the show, One Life today would be celebrating it’s 44th anniversary.
Imagine: the series would be continuing its upward climb in the ratings, as the show that was the ‘little-engine-that-could’ in the ABC Daytime line-up was on fire until it’s final air show. And a special thanks for that is owed to the powerful writing and producing teams, and stellar performances from the acting ensemble.
One Life to Live was created by the incredible genius of Agnes Nixon and launched on ABC on July 15th, 1968. From the original families of the Lords, Woleks and Craigs up till the end with the Buchanans, Cramers, Lords and more, it was the show that had more heart, humor, and drama that non can compare.
Now on would have been the shows 44th year, take a look after the jump at most of the show openings through 1968 and on! Let us know your thoughts on this sad and frustrating day, as On-Air On-Soaps pays tribute to the legacy of Llanview!
