Ugly Betty gets canned

Bad news for fans of the trials and tribulations of Betty Suarez after US television network ABC announced that it has decided to cancel Ugly Betty after four seasons of the hit show.

The fashion themed show set in the offices of Mode magazine has seen its ratings fall dramatically and the last ever episode of the Emmy award winning series will air in April of this year.

ABC released a joint statement from Silvio Horta, Ugly Betty's executive producer, and Steve McPherson, the network's president, regarding the decision: '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.'

The show, which stars America Ferrera in the Emmy award winning lead role, is now in its fourth series but has been struggling with ratings stateside.
