Ugly Betty Gets Canceled by ABC
One of ABC's primetime comedies will be no more after its current season. According to The Hollywood Reporter's The Live Feed, ABC has canceled Ugly Betty. The network released the following statement on the cancellation:
"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. We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell."
