> Description 
The soap opera Loving aired on ABC from June 27, 1983 to November 10, 1995. It was co-created by Agnes Nixon and Douglas Marland, two noted figures in daytime television in the US. ABC took the unusual step of premiering the show with a 2-hour primetime movie, starring much of the cast as well as Lloyd Bridges and Geraldine Page. The early years of the show revolved around the blue-collar Donovans and the blue-blood Aldens. Major social issues such as incest, alcoholism and post-traumatic stress syndrome of Vietnam vets were covered. But Marland and Nixon left the series after a few years and in spite of ABC bumping down Ryan's Hope to give Loving a choice timeslot, and cast additions of such popular All My Children stars as Debbi Morgan (Angie) and Jean Leclerc (Jeremy), the ratings remained poor throughout the show's run. Loving, dubbed "the little show that could" by viewers, suffered from a constant revolving door of writers and producers, leading to questionable story moments such as a heroine's addiction to cough syrup and one character selling his soul to the Devil.
