Ugly Betty is moving from Friday night after all

ugly_betty_America_FerreraDid someone at ABC hear my plea for Ugly Betty... or read my post from the other day about how the show was being left to shrivel and die on Friday nights? Perhaps so because today's Hollywood Reporter claims that ABC will move Ugly Betty to Wednesday at 10 p.m. in the spot currently occupied by Eastwick.

Hey, that's what I was advocating. It just makes sense. Eastwick is playing out the string. It's not coming back. ABC has decided to burn off the remaining episodes, but it can do that anywhere on the schedule... even on Friday nights.

But Ugly Betty deserves a chance to come back to the glory days when it was competitive in the ratings. Notice I didn't say it was a Nielsen winner; it never really was. But it was in there trying and it was an award-winning show so that made it all right. It was a trade-off for ABC.

This year, however, ABC was wasting a good season of Betty by dumping it on Friday.

Well, no more. If ABC sticks with the sitcom lineup on Wednesday from 8-10, adding Betty could make it an all-funny night. So far, ABC has yet to decide ... or at least to announce a decision. Meanwhile, on Friday in Betty's old slot, the last five episodes of Shark Tank will air.

Wow! there will air 5 more episodes of Shark Tank? that would be great! well, it's not that I don't like Ugly Betty, but Shark Tank is still my favorite, because I get insights from the business tycoons but there are sites I visit to get business tips it's at SharkTankTVShow while waiting for the next season.

In my opinion Ugly Betty has run its course. Nothing they've done has lived up to the first season creatively. Granted, this season has seen a resurgence in better writing and acting, but I still think the series has run its course.
