ABC dumps Ugly Betty, for now

ABC has pulled Ugly Betty from their spring lineup.

Ugly Better will be replaced by episodes of Samantha Who? and the new comedy In the Motherhood.

According to Michael Ausiello at EW, the network said that the show "will return to Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. following the run of In the Motherhood and Samantha Who?," or in other words, mid June, outside the regular season.

While Ugly Betty hasn't been canceled, taking it out of the regular season can't be a good sign for the show, and the odds of it being renewed have just lengthened.
