(Photo: Splash News Online) ABC has just announced that it is pulling Ugly Betty from the schedule on March 26 and filling that slot with Samantha Who? and then the new comedy In the Motherhood starring Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines (which, according to sources on the set had some initially stormy moments between the two stars).

Ugly Betty will probably return in June, which is death for first-run TV shows since people are out and about and not DVRing very much.

"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."
