NEW YORK - ABC is canceling the soap operas "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," both programs that have been on the network's daytime lineup for more than 40 years.

The move leaves "General Hospital" as ABC's only daytime drama.

ABC's daytime department president Brian Frons said Thursday that "viewers are looking for different types of programming these days."

Soap operas have slowly been fading as a TV force, with many of the women who made up the target audience now in the work force.

ABC will air two new shows, one about food and the other about lifestyle transformations.

ABC did not immediately say when the soap operas would go off the air.
