Great!! Now I get to boycott ABC as well as NBC! There is nothing to watch anymore! I’m in the mood to punch somone out…someone from the networks.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

good, ive always hated this show
it sucks so bad
i dont even no why ppl liked it that much, the spanish version was better and funnier, english version was pure crap

Can you give Betty a second chance, please? I love the show so much that don’t want to see it ending…

I think this decision shows surprising and commendable forethought from a television network.

Canceling a show that’s no longer bringing in top ratings, but also not bottom ratings, isn’t the easiest decision to make, as there is always that possibility of milking it for _all_ its worth, right down to the last drop, rather than just most its worth. Let’s face it, though, Ugly Betty has never appealed to a particularly wide audience, and its future prospects were slim. Big fans of the show probably would’ve continued watching no matter what, but with the declining quality of the writing/story UB would’ve been unlikely to gain additional viewers. There really isn’t much else they could do with the characters, except to finally beautify Betty (which we all know is gonna happen).

At least the ABC had the courage to call it quits while they were winning rather than keep spanking a limping horse, the way Fox does with House, which really should’ve ended at Season 3-4 at the very latest.

OH I GET IT! ABC DECIDED TO DROP THE ONLY TRULY FUNNY SHOW THAT THEY HAD. SO THE NEW DEFINITION OF FUNNY IS, BORING COMEDY SHOWS THAT SHOW MOMMY AND DADDY HAVING SEX AND TEASING THEIR CHILDREN. SENSIBLE COMEDY HAS BEEN SHALL WE SAY, LOST. CLEAN CUT SHOWS ABOUT ENTERPRENUREALSHIP RELATIONSHIPS IS NOT EDUCATIONAL, SEXUALLY.
