ABC announced Monday that it is pulling Ugly Betty from the schedule on March 26 and filling that slot with Samantha Who?
The slot will then be filled by the new comedy In the Motherhood starring Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines.
The Thursday night block is a good opportunity to launch these comedies, said an ABC rep.
That said, Betty is a solid performer and there is no question that it will definitely be back to complete its season, just without repeats.
Ugly Betty will return in June.
