Ugly Betty: Petition to Save the ABC TV Show

Ugly Betty TV showEach week, sweet Betty Suarez successfully navigates the “shark-infested” world of Mode magazine. Unfortunately, her TV show hasn’t been as lucky with the TV ratings. It was barely renewed last season and it looks very likely to be cancelled this time around.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for ABC is for many millions of people to watch the show on their television sets, while it’s being broadcast. Unfortunately, ratings are put together based on a sampling of viewers. If you’re a “Nielsen household,” your viewership is being directly counted. If not, it’s really not.

However, if you like Ugly Betty and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. If you’re a Nielsen family, watch the show whenever it’s on. If not, watch it on TV or watch at ABC.com or purchase episodes on iTunes so your viewing will be directly counted. Encourage others to watch the show. You might know a Nielsen family and not be aware of it.
  1. Talk about the show with others; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show that you’re invested in gets other people interested or might help bring former viewers back.
  1. Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
  1. Write to the network. Be respectful. Everyone responds better to courtesy. Tell them how much you enjoy the show, that you’ve signed the petition, and that you want to see it continue. You can use this form or, even better, write via “snail-mail” to: Mr. Stephen McPherson, Chairman, ABC, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: Ugly Betty
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Write the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).

To ABC, ABC Studios, Reveille, Silent H Productions, Ventanarosa:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching Ugly Bettyon the ABC network. It’s a great show that successfully merges comedy with drama each week. We have watched the characters for several years and want to continue to see them grow and change.

Please find a way to keep Ugly Betty on the air. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on ABC or, if necessary, on another Disney-owned channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Ugly Betty is a great show, unfortunately got cancelled, and the show got an unworthy final. So we need at least a movie that ends the show properly.

    Please Bring Ugly Betty Back this is my favorite TV show and I have just now come to find out that it is canceled. We need to have season 5 plus other new seasons of this show. There are a lot of new shows out now that do not add up to this show. I have watched all the episodes several times can not get enough of it and it would be even better if I could move on to the next chapter of Betty's Life as well as her career. BRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG BBBBBBBBBBBBBBEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTYYYYYYYYYYYY BBBBBBBBBBBAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKK !!!!!!!

    i was a late fan of ugly betty but i would really appreciate it , if ugly betty was back on air . I watched it on netflix & i just couldn't get enough of watching every episode & season since the begining and when i saw i was on the very last episode it ticked me off because i wanted to keep watching more. Please bring it back.

    Great show. It would be very harsh on us viewers if it were cancelled.

    Hello, I would like to say that I really loved Ugly Betty. I watched it on Netflix and I would like this show to continue to season 5. I think alot of hispanic viewers where encouraged by her courage to make it through the fashion industry knowing that it was going to be tough for her. As a hispanic woman I know how hard it is to continue where I feel that I dont belong, but watching Ugly Betty taught me that anything is possible if you have faith in yourself and try you're hardest to fit in and to continue with you're head held up high.

    Ugly Betty was an extremely well directed and managed show. I have to say that I watched almost 3 seasons right of the bat with out rest!Ok, maybe a little rest. Ugly Betty is the perfect creation and inspiration for diverse viewers through out the world. I know it brought my family together, created harmony, and it thought us not to conform with out a fight. This show made me realize that there is nothing impossible in this world and that dreaming big is what life is all about. Reaching our family goals or career goals may not always be easy, but we must stay hopeful and we surround ourselves with the people who care for us the most. In life we have to make many tough choices. We saw Betty endure a lot of pain and struggles, but it only made her better. Ugly Betty was and is pure inspiration. The cast in the show was amazing, it was so versatile and unique. All the characters had something special and they truly grew on me. I don't find that in many shows. Ugly Betty needs to come back and have another 10+ seasons. This is a show about changing lives and it's truly unfortunate that ABC decided to pull the plug. Maybe the show was too "honest" and "real" and many viewers can't handle something like that. Best wishes to the whole production. You are all extremely talented and deserve to come back.

    I loved this show, as did a lot of my friends here in Ireland! Please bring it back, or maybe make a tv movie? Anything to tie up the loose ends! There hasn't been a show as clever and as funny since, and I don't think there ever will be, so please bring it back!

    Having bought the entire box set of the Ugly Betty series and watching an episode or two at every spare moment with my mum, we were shocked at how things were left at the end of episode 20, season 4, and thought there must be a season five! To our dismay, there was not. We need a Season Five! We miss Betty!
