There is a great book out there made by Health for Life called Legendary Abs. I believe that there is also a second book that went into print. Very good info and has been around for a very long time. There is no need to do them everyday. Diet is the most essential aspect of having the abs show themselves. The correct balance of diet, exercise, and sleep must be found.
