Cancellation Buzz: Is Ugly Betty Doomed? - Featured

Uh-oh! ABC announced Tuesday that it plans to move Ugly Betty to Fridays in the fall, wedged between wacky neighbors Supernanny and 20/20.


A move to Friday is often a show's last stop before cancellation, but ABC Entertainment president Steve McPherson expressed confidence in Betty during his presentation of the network's fall schedule. "I love the show," he said. "I'd love to see it have a great run on Friday night, the way Ghost Whisperer has." He said he hopes that Betty will hold on to Supernanny's lead-in.


Wife Swap, which previously followed Supernanny on Fridays, has yet to find a new home, though the network confirmed that it has been renewed for another season.


McPherson said Flash Forward, a new supernatural drama starring Joseph Fiennes and Sonya Walger, will take over Betty's Thursday-at-8 time slot. "We just have a big opportunity with Flash Forward, and you have to make some bold moves sometimes," he said.


Ugly Betty's third-season finale airs Thursday at 8 pm/ET on ABC.

Honestly, i think Ugly Betty has gone from fun over-the-top to way way way too over-the-top. Betty has been working in the fashion world for how long now?? Ages....and she still has her adult braces?? really? for this long? at least take those out now!!Dressing badly and looking like a clown were fun for the first season and a half..but then it just got like...seriously...cant this girl even make an effort? I know the show is about being urself and still succeeding, but no one is that unaware...she wouldve eventually got a makeover at some point!! She doesnt have to go from blue braces to prom queen in one night...but a few little things here and there would make it a little more believable and fun to watch! She could still be herself with a little taste!!Also, Mode was supposed to be a step in her ladder to success...but just to keep the show going, it seems like she's forgotten her ambition and just seems to be wrapped up in other people's drama...Ive been quite disappointed with it lately and unless something changes drastically, i think i might stop caring whether Betty has a boyfriend or not.

She just finished yeti is trying to get an editing job which = ambition. your just looking at her outfits and crap which are a little over done, but the show is still really good. the drama of the show got over the top but its now back to normal and I enjoyed watching Betty finish her project. I hope it doesn't get cancelled.
