I saw only one show. It was the next-to-the-last show, but I didn't know that at the time. I liked those show so I decided to watch the next one. When I went to do so, that idiot Obamaniac came on blathering on about something surely inconsequential, and he preempted the show.

So, I figured they would just reschedule that episode of Ugly Betty.

Then I heard it was cancelled.

:(

i HATE when that happens !

Luckily (?) where I live the show is only in its second season so I have a few more shows to go. Besides being fun, I really enjoyed its positive view of the gay world, especially Betty's teen-age nephew (played by Mark Indelicato) who has taught his straight family so much.

I happen to see a movie just recently with that actor from Ugly Betty, Michael Urie. The movie was "WTC View".

The network that aired Ugly Betty is hopelessly unstable. They couldn't keep anything running on a reliable schedule even if they tried.

Reminds me of that wishy-washer governor lady that walked out on Alaska.

Hopefully they will sell a box set of the whole series now that the network imploded.

I'd rather watch PBS.Besides ,if you've ever been in gay bars,most of the men wear boring jeans and tshirts and smoke too much.
