It's going to be a miserable Thanksgiving holiday for fans of beloved soaps All My Children and One Life To Live - plans to resurrect the long-running TV shows online have been scrapped.

Why You Should Be Watching ABC's 'Castle'

2/21/2010 11:30am EST
Why You Should Be Watching ABC
With NBC having Law & Order, CBS living it up with the CSI franchise (not to mention Criminal Minds and NCIS) and FOX having surprise success with Bones, it's no shock that ABC has decided to give the crime drama genre another go after cancelling NYPD Blue in 2005. But this time, the network has decided to go with funny over gritty.

It may not be as edgy as Blue. But Castle, which debuted in March 2009 as a mid-season replacement, is one TV show that people should watch. Or at least put on their DVR list.

On Castle, Über rich and famous and playboy mystery novelist Richard Castle, pla...
