> Description 
All My Children was created by Agnes Nixon. Although Nixon had previously created One Life to Live for ABC following her success with Another World and The Guiding Light, All My Children was her brainchild. She set the show in Pine Valley, Pennsylvania, a small suburb of Philadelphia.

At one time, it was so popular that it was the most widely-recorded television show in the United States. The show ranked #2 in the daytime Nielsen ratings for much of the 1980s as well as the majority of the 1990s. While the show's ratings declined in the late 1990s and early 2000s, All My Children still enjoyed a massive fan following, usually ranking around the middle of the pack in the daytime Nielsens, with over three million people watching each day. In 2003 and 2004, however, the show's ratings picked up again, and has tied other shows for second place for the first time in years.

From 1970 to 1992, the show was either written by Nixon herself or by her protégé, Wisner Washam. When the executives at ABC wished to bring in new blood on the writing staff, they promoted team writer Megan McTavish into the head position, where she would stay until 1995, with another stint from 1997 to 1999. After numerous writing staff changes, she returned to the position in 2003, where she is today.
