These sorts of shows usually have short shelf lives - three seasons is pretty typical and this one lasted for four, so it's had a good run. Here's hoping we see some of these talented actors on other new shows soon.

We tried, but quit watching during season 2. Just couldn't get into it.

Thank God. Think of all the girls with low self esteem that watched that show and are slightly to more less attractive than Betty, but never thought they were ugly before ABC put a defined label on ugly...

Didn't even know this show was still on the air. I guess I am not the only one.. and that's why it was canceled.

It was actually pretty fresh and funny for a couple years... I stopped watching about a year and a half ago when they started recycling plots from earlier episodes.

Yes, the show jumped the shark a while ago when they started to dress Betty up fashionably. And now there are zero love interests/sexual tension anywhere to be found. It's a mess, but so refreshing with such snappy dialog that's it's worth following to the grave. What's the deal, I know they have a new finale show for April something. Is it all reruns until then???
