Ugly Betty Cancellation Buzz: ABC Cancels Betty! - Featured

ABC, you're breakin' my heart! First Pushing Daisies, now Ugly Betty! Does the TV cancellation world get more harsh than that?


So fans, here's the tragic news from EW's The Ausiello Files:


This is about as ugly as it gets, folks.


ABC has just informed Ugly Betty producers that the show's current fourth season will be its last. What's more, the network has trimmed the show's episode order from 22 to 20.


Although not a complete shock given the show's heinous ratings, the news is nonetheless a total bummer -- particularly in light of Betty's creative resurgence this season.


The good news is that ABC has given Betty's bosses enough time to craft a satisfying series finale. Exec producer Silvio Horta and ABC president Steve McPherson confirmed as much in this joint statement: "We've mutually come to the difficult decision to make this Ugly Betty's final season, and are announcing now as we want to allow the show ample time to write a satisfying conclusion. We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell."


But back to the bad news: Betty is about to hang up her poncho for good. The comments sections is currently accepting heartfelt eulogies...

This is sad but not surprising :( At least we are going to get a conclusion of some kind. Hopefully it will be satisfying to all of the Betty fans!

You know what though. Reality tv shows and cartoons featuring fart jokes has taken over our tv sets and I'm tired of good shows that have some creative thought behind them being canceled. Ugly Betty had flavor. Its a shame shows like George Lopez, dollhouse, firefly, Ugly Betty, moonlight get canceled and so many more. My willy, Justin,and Betty where shall I get my fix?

This show was awesome in the first season and mediocre in the second and after that it just fell flat on it's face. So I'm sorry to disappoint any fans but its about time they canceled this artisctracty and moved on. Let's something new and possibly better take it's place. Let's face it ABC is well on it's way to becoming the next NBC. Lost hello that was one of the lamest shows on tv from start to finish. How it last as long as it has I'll never know. They never wrap up plotlines. They drop them and hope you forget.

I have to admit the second season was mediocre, but the third season was really good! I will be sad to see it go. Great, what will I watch? I hope the writers will be able to provide a satisfying ending. It would help to make the main a little more bearable :(

Very sorry to see it go. Along with Modern Family, Ugly Betty provides me with my laughs for the week. Especially sorry because it will probably be replaced with more virtually soap opera crap filled with gratuitous sex. :-(
