'Ugly Betty' returns; 'Samantha Who?' and 'In the Motherhood' vanish

Ugly "Ugly Betty" fans will be happy to learn that ABC has decided to bring it back to its lineup one week earlier than had been planned.

The show will return April 30 with Betty (America Ferrera, pictured) still having a crush on Matt, and Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams) wondering if William is her biological son.

The move means that "Samantha Who?"-- which has been struggling in the ratings since the writers strike -- will go off the air indefinitely, along with new comedy "In the Motherhood," which has been plagued with behind-the-scenes problems for months, according to sources.

In other announcements ABC issued today: The 100th episode of "Grey's Anatomy"-- the big Meredith and Derek nuptials -- will air May 7, and the season finale -- probably series finale -- of "Scrubs" airs May 6.

I LOVE Ugly Betty! I'm sooooo happy it's coming back early and I can't wait to see next season!!!

This is good news. Now, if only ABC would give Pushing Daisies another chance. I would be happy.
