ABC Cancels 'Ugly Betty'

Ugly Betty will end after this season, ABC announced today.

“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,” ABC and the show’s producers wrote in a statement. “We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell.”

The ABC show will be cut from 22 episodes to 20 for its fourth and final season, according to EW‘s Michael Ausiello.

    For those who DON’T WANT the show to end – LET THE NETWORK KNOW! I had to make myself remember when they switched to Fridays (missed it a few times before I got it) & then they switched it to – what? – Wednesdays?!
    Now it’s canceled? FLOOD the network with emails letting them know YOUR opinions; seriously, how else are they going to know? Perhaps if fans had done this BEFORE the actually Friday switch had been done, it would still be getting high ratings… If I remember correctly, the network made their intentions known several weeks (few months) BEFORE they actually did anything, right?
    Anyway, if all else fails & it does end – Let’s face it: Daniel & Betty NEED to be TOGETHER!
    By the way, could someone PLEASE tell what happened to Ralph Macchio? There, you got me, I stopped watching before his departure, & now he’s been replaced…

    This show introduced me to VAL EMMICH aka Jesse, Betty’s neighbor who she crushed hard.

    Jesse as in VAL EMMICH is a musician in real life. Check out his show next month at Maxwells in Hoboken NJ on the 27th! He is cute in person as he is on screen. And go say hi. He’s super friendly.

    @Nicole just because America Ferrara isn’t size 0 doesn’t mean she’s fat

    Since the beginning of the season, Friday Nights, UG has been getting dreadful ratings. Even with its move on Thursday, it loses 40% of its lead in from Cougar Town. About 4 million viewers each night. Even Jay Leno reruns beat new Betty episodes. So it is about time.

    So if you guys complain about loving this show and hatin’ ABC, it’s your fault for not watching. :)

    I love Ugly Betty! I’ve seen every episode several times. I’m sad to see it go. I think a lot shows suffer from not knowing how long they will be on the air. In Latin American telenovelas, they last 5 or 6 months. That means there is a beginning, middle, and end. In American TV, we seem to deal with uncertainty, then suddenly ABC pulls crap like this. We get news of a cancelation and the writers have to scramble to wrap it all up. Good-bye TV, I’m finished with you after Ugly Betty ends its season.

    Prolly replace it with another reality show which we can’t get enough of ——– NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Reality shows are so much cheaper and the tackier they are, the more money they make.
