ABC cancels 'Ugly Betty,' final eight episodes to air

NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Bad news for fans of ABC's dramedy "Ugly Betty:" the Emmy-award winning series has been cancelled.

The network promises the series will finish its final eight episodes in a way that will satisfy its fans.

Based on a Colombian telenovela, the warmhearted dramedy starring America Ferrera was a critical and popular success when it debuted in Fall 2006 but has since struggled in with a loss in audience.

The series has been saluted with Emmy, Golden Globe and Peabody awards, among others.
