Wow, that Tim Gunn sure is getting around these days. ABC just announced that it's axing two of its longest running daytime soaps (One Life to Live, All My Children?apparently sparing the sometimes-home to James Franco, General Hospital) to make way for?wait for it?reality TV programming. One's a food show, the other has the working title "The Revolution." This one features Tim Gunn as sort of a "health and lifestyle transformation" guru. Make it work, indeed! Um, except for all of those people on the soaps who are out of jobs. Maybe Tim's first guest can be Susan Lucci. [LATimes]
