    Ugly Betty Canceled by ABC

    Source: OMG

    Things have gotten ugly over at ABC.

    The network is canceling Ugly Betty, which stars America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams and Ana Ortiz. The hour-long show is currently in its fourth season.

    "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," executive producer Silvio Horta and ABC president Stephen McPherson told UsMagazine.com in a joint statement Wednesday. "We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell."

    The series -- about a young woman struggling as an editor at a fashion magazine -- has shifted time slots frequently over the past year. They had switched to Fridays for half a season before returning to Wednesday nights this fall.

    In addition to telling producers that the show is over, the network has also trimmed the final season's episode order from 22 to 20.




    I kind of figured this would happen after ABC moved the show to friday's, but it's still sad. =(

    We all knew it was coming.

    I wonder though, with shows like this does it really matter so much about ratings in America? It's shown all over the world so I would assume ABC get money from all the networks across the world who air it.

    RIP Betty!

    ^I thought it'd be because of bad ratings that they were cancelling it?

    Well, yes. Bad ratings in America.
    The ratings have probably slumped all over the word to be honest as the show hasn't been as good as it used to be. But in America why can't they just move it to a less prominent slot and let it continue and get the money from the other networks who pay to show it! I'm gonna miss Betty

    I'm still a loyal Betty fan, so I'm devastated.

    Yea, I do agree with those who said it got a bit monotonous after a while! At least they have the chance to properly wrap thing sup, though. I think most people only hung in there waiting for her to get her makeover lol!
