FROM SMALL SCREEN TO WEB: Two soap operas, both canceled in 2011 after more than four decades on TV, have found new life as Internet series.

THE SOAPS: "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will each run a half-hour show on Mondays through Thursdays. The episodes will be available on Hulu and for purchase on iTunes.

THE BACK STORY: The genre has been declining for decades as viewership withered. There are only four soap operas left on the broadcast networks; there were a dozen in 1991.
