What's Driving Viewers Away From Betty?

As we learned a little while ago, ABC is shaking up its comedy lineup, and one of the results is a hiatus for Ugly Betty.

The show's had its loyal fans practically since the moment it burst onto the scene in '06, but its ratings have dipped significantly this year. It could just be lingering effects of the writers' strike, but some believe Betty and friends are being shelved because things have gone badly off track.

A lot of fans across the web (including you!) have chimed in with their thoughts about what's dragging the show down. Some cite not enough fun drama at the Mode offices, others think Betty's family is too clingy, and still others say Betty herself has become intolerable!

So I'm curious: What, if anything, do you think is driving viewers away from Ugly Betty?

It's just time for a makeover. I get it, she has depth of personality and character, she's not concerned with the whole personal in the modeling industry. But seriously, how long does she have to have those braces. I only had mine for 1.5 years. She doesn't have to betray her convictions, but they can at least update her a bit. She's still going to be "ugly" in her industry, so perhaps she should grow a little.
