Emmy-nominated actress Vanessa L. Williams confessed during an interview on 'Live with Regis & Kelly' that the cast of 'Ugly Betty' is upset over the cancellation of their series.
"I got to be honest, we're devastated," admitted the 46-year-old talent. "We're sad; we're not ready for it to end. We just moved to New York. We just got on a roll."
After airing for three seasons on Thursday nights, the show suffered a tremendous ratings decline when ABC moved the show to Friday evenings. Despite being relocated in January to a new night, Wednesdays, which gave the show a ratings boost, the network has still opted to end the American telenovela at the end of this season.
"Our season this year has been the best we've ever had. But numbers and ratings (were a concern). A lot of people couldn't even find us. We switched - we were put on Thursday then taken off. Then we were on Fridays, now we're finally on Wednesday nights. But we're sad," Williams explained.
'Ugly Betty' has four more episodes to tape before they wrap for good.
Williams has already lined up her next gig.
The actor/singer will be starring in the new Broadway production, 'Sondheim on Sondheim,' a musical featuring music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
The show, created and directed by Pulitzer Prize winner James Lapine, begins in previews at Studio 54 on March 19 and officially opens on April 22.
