HATE IT! Ugly News

Actually, it's old news... from last week but the fact that it was announced days ago doesn't take the sting out of the cancellation of one of the most heartfelt and funny TV shows out there -- 'Ugly Betty.'

I was out & about when I first spotted the news on Twitter last week. The demise of Betty has been a common rumour for a few seasons now -- and it appears that ABC has decided to finally evict Betty and her wonderful cast of characters to enable a more vapid program to take her timeslot.

Sure, the program has endured moments of questionable plot lines, but through all the twists and turns, the show always portrayed plenty of heart, soul and truth. Instead of the hilarious hi-jinx of 'Mode'-mates, Marc and Amanda, or the sweet sisterly devotion of Betty and Hilda, we'll probably be force fed more 'Bachelor' spin-offs, or a questionable hour of annoying sitcoms.

'Desperate Housewives' survives, Betty does not. Go figure.

Thanks for the memories, Betty! You will be greatly missed.
