On Friday, Jan. 13, "One Life to Live" ended its run after 44 years on the air. The end of the series -- and its sister show, "All My Children" -- didn't come without controversy. Angry fans have launched Save Our Soaps campaigns and sent countless letters to ABC, refusing to tune in to replacement shows "The Revolution" and "The Chew."

Try as they might, though, there's been no response from the networks, and it's likely that Friday's episode was the last we'll see of Llanview. Unlike "All My Children," which ended with a series of disjointed cliffhangers, leaving fans unsatisfied, "One Life to Live" made a distinct effort to wrap up dangling threads.

Longtime fans finally got answers to the ongoing question of Jessica's paternity in an emotional scene that revealed that she is, indeed, Clint's daughter. Clint then proposed to Viki -- another tearjerker of a scene, particularly for the actors involved, it seems! Bo and Nora also tugged on our heartstrings after becoming grandparents. When he said, "I love you, Red," we were taken right back to the early days of their relationship (which we will now proceed to dig up on YouTube).
Todd and Blair, who are headed to "General Hospital," were in flagrante when the police arrived to arrest Todd for murdering Victor Lord Jr. In a surprising twist, though, it was revealed that Lord is still alive and, it appears, kidnapped by Allison.
Were you satisfied by the last episode? Will you watch the "One Life to Live" cast members who are headed to "General Hospital"? Will you give "The Revolution" a chance?

I'M A TRUE & LONGTIME SOAP FAN LIKE MOST PEOPLE ON THIS THREAD. SHAME ON ABC FOR NOT APPRECIATING THE FANS WHO HAVE BEEN LOYAL TO THEIR DAYTIME TV SHOWS.
I haved watched The Chew and tried to give it a chance, but really - the show stinks and is just like so many other shows on tv. The Revolution will be the same. I say, give us back out soaps. I already do watch General Hospital so I will welcome new characters that I am familiar with.
