Ugly Betty put up on the shelf

Disney is calling it quits for Ugly Betty after its fourth season on ABC. A pretty respectable run for a show that was basically a retread of a soap opera from Mexico.

I never really got into the show, I was not the target market, to say the least. But the numbers it pulled in its first season were wonderful. So was the acting and writing. Hopefully Disney will find somewhere else in its project pool for members of the cast, especially America Ferrera.

ABC chief Steve McPherson says that choosing this early in the season to make it the last gives the writers time to pen a satisfying conclusion to the show. If that’s the case, how would you like the story to end? Should Betty get her due?
