HATE IT! Bye, Bye Ugly Betty

With rumours of its survival 'on the bubble', and doubts in some corners as to whether it will be renewed for next season, 'Ugly Betty' takes a temporary bow from our screens after tonight's episode. 

ABC is clearing the Betty-fied Thursday night 8pm time slot to test out other programs, namely 'Samantha Who' -- which I feel is horribly over-rated -- and the new sprog-com, 'In the Motherhood'.

Betty, Daniel, Marc and the Mode gang are scheduled to strut across our TV screens for their final set of season 3 eps starting on May 7. Ah, how I will miss them! 'Betty' has had its ups & downs but this season has been stellar, and full of those heartfelt moments that disappeared for a spell in season 2. Here's hoping season 4 will see the light of day.

Still waiting for Season 3 to start here. I love Betty and really hope it doesn't get axed for good!!!

Nooooo!!! We haven't even had the rest of Season 2 yet!! That's so so so unfair. If they're just going to axe shows that get a good audience elsewhere then they shouldn't bother sellint them across the globe. This is like Pushing Daisies all over again. I love that show and it was brilliant on Saturday nights and then America axed it. I don't get too hooked on US shows now that I know they could be axed pretty quickly. NBC should get rid of Heroes, that's crap now.

As Ugly Betty was originally a Latin American telenovella of sorts, it has already lasted far longer than it should have. Having said that, I am actually watching again this season and will be gutted to have to wait until May. At least I'll have Chair on Gossip Girl to keep me entertained.
