See ya: 'Ugly Betty' moving to Wednesdays
Since Ugly Betty got its groove back this season, only one thing’s been holding it back: that godawful Friday time slot! But thankfully, that problem will soon be solved. Sources confirm for me that the show’s moving to Wednesdays at 10 pm/ET, most likely when it returns from its holiday hiatus in January.
If you don’t think it’s good news that Betty is joining what will soon be ABC’s all-comedy night (even though the network isn’t confirming the schedule change yet), trust me, or trust Mike, who has to be among its biggest cheerleaders, you haven’t seen it lately. It’s great!
So what do you think? Will more viewers check out and/or return to the series when it escapes from its Friday purgatory and joins the Wednesday laffers? And if not, how sucktacular will that be? Debate below.
