ABC has announced that a show will close its doors at the end of this season.

After 4 seasons, Ugly Betty is no mas. 

This is what ABC and Betty‘s production company had to say:

“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.”

Ugly Betty started its life on ABC a hit with viewers and critics alike, winning some major awards along the way.  However, their ratings have seen quite the tumble – even falling deeper into the abyss with its move to Friday nights.  Once Eastwick was cancelled, ABC announced they were moving Ugly Betty to Wednesdays at 10pm (ET).

Fans were hopeful that this was a sign ABC wanted the show to live on for more seasons; and since Ugly Betty is produced by ABC‘s production company, more episodes would mean more money for them in syndication.  All to no avail, as their Wednesday night ratings were horrid.

Ugly Betty is the first long(ish) running program on ABC to be cancelled this season.  Both Hank and Eastwick  – new ABC shows – have been cancelled this season, with the forgotten‘s cancellation announcement probably coming soon.
