Two Guys, a Girl and a TV Set

Three college friends out in the world, filling the void with television…and loving it.

Bye Bye Betty

Posted by CJ Cregg on January 28, 2010

Ugly Betty is not returning for a 5th season, sources are reporting.  Exec producer Silvio Horta and ABC President Steve McPherson say this in a joint statement:

“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.”

Boohooo for Betty!

In addition, only 20 instead of a regular season of 22 episodes will air this year.

The show has averaged only around 4.3 million viewers per episode this year, compared to 11 million in its premiere season.

The show was moved to the Friday Night “death slot” earlier this month, but then moved back to the Wednesday comedy slot.  Still, viewers aren’t sticking around.

Nonetheless, I know a fair number of my friends that will miss Betty terribly.
