Ugly Betty on Long Break

by at . Comments

Things are not looking well for one of our favorite shows, Ugly Betty.  ABC recently announced during its scheduling tweaks that its hit dramedy will be put on hold come March 26.

According to the network, they will be benching the show in order to air episodes of Samantha Who? and the new sitom, In The Motherhood.  They say, "Ugly Betty will return to Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. following the run of In the Motherhood and Samantha Who?"

Well, that means if Who? / Motherhood run out their full seasons Betty won't return until June!  ABC says, "Betty is a solid performer and there is no question that it will definitely be back to complete its season, just without repeats."

However, without an official date of return it's not a good sign for America Ferrera's hit.  Don't worry, we still have several new episodes before March 26 including next week's "Kissed Off."
