Ugly Betty Says Goodbye Tonight


Tonight we say goodbye to ABC’s soaptastic Ugly Betty. During its four seasons the over-the-top dramady made America Ferrera a star and won her an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a SAG Award, breathed new life into the careers of Vanessa Williams, Judith Light and Tony Plana and introduced us to Michael Uri, Mark Indelicato and Becki Newton. It also treated fans to a lot of laughs, shocking plot twists and more than a few catfights, all centered in the sensationalized world of MODE magazine. As Ugly Betty takes its final bow it’s important to remember its most important theme, it’s what’s inside each of us that matters most.

    Ugly Betty was one of the most beautiful, provoking, delightful dramedies to hit network television in the past decade. For all its outlandish plots and terrific one-liners, I’ll miss the way all the characters (except of course for Wilhemina) eventually grew to care deeply for each other. I especially loved the Marc and Amanda friendship.

    It’s sad whenever a well-written show with great actors goes off the air!!! Network television is truly dying, and reality television is killing it softly and slowly!!!

    I love this show and I’ve seen every single episode.  I’m very sad to see it leaving the air. I noticed someone blamed ABC.  I don’t see how it’s their fault. The show is very low rated, which is unfortunate. What are they supposed to do?

    I love this show, never missed an episode too. I like the write up Luke did on it. It is truly a great show overall. I never was crazy about the pairings with Betty, but the characters, storyline twists, cinematography and meaning was always beautiful.

    It’s ABC’s fault b/c they messed with their time slot Ugly Betty was doing very well when it was on Thursdays at 8/7c but they wanted to bring on those awful shows like In the Motherhood and Samantha Who?in Betty’s timeslot and Betty got pushed to the Friday Night death slot.Then Eastwick got canned and they put the show in that time slot.So they kept moving the show around and they basically stopped promoting it all together apparently it’s not just an issue in daytime lol ABC needs to get their crap together!

    I agree they should have kept it in it’s old time slot, but let keep it real, when it was in it’s old time slot the ratings started out good, but then they went down terribly. I agree Friday was an awful night and moving it to Wednesdays at 10 was not a good move either, but let face it, if people were really into the show as much as we or ABC would have liked them to be, they would have followed it whatever timeslot.

    Wow – Someone here that understands how ratings work: continued low ratings or a gradual decline in ratings = cancellation.

    I will miss UB.  The last several episodes have really been very good.

    I haven’t seen the finale yet but I know that I’m going to cry. I’ve loved UB since the beginning and I’m so sad to see it go.

    I actually think that the writers are more to blame than ABC. They didn’t give the fans what they wanted (arguably the Betty and Daniel pairing) and instead wrote storylines that drove the audience away.

    I love Ugly Betty.  At first I was so pissed that Daniel and Betty didn’t kiss or admit to feelings at the end, but now I’m looking at the other side which is that we the viewers can make up our own minds about what happens next.  I personally think that Daniel and Betty ended up together.  I’m sticking with that until a movie comes out telling me differently. 

    This wonderful show shouldn’t have been cancelled this soon but I look forward to watching these talented actors in other roles.

    In an efforrt to avoid spoilers I’ll just say I loved it. I could’ve done with some more Willie and Justin though,  but I realize they only had an hour and they couldn’t do everything.
    I also thought the ending was unsatisfying at first, but the more I thought about the more it seemed appropreiate to the characters.
