Could Rich Sommer be Ugly Betty's new man?

rich_sommer_glassesOh, dear Betty, where is the love? I'm speaking of ABC's Ugly Betty, naturally. Despite the braces, the red glasses and the questionable fashion sense, the vivacious Betty Suarez remains a popular date. I can think of only one time this past season when she was dancing with herself, and that was by choice.

Well, after Betty's on-again, off-again thing with Matt turned into a very much an "on" thing -- and a clingy one at that -- last week saw Matt making a decision that definitely puts the romance on hold.

What's next for Betty? Apparently one of the Mad Men. In March, Mad Men actor Rich Sommer will appear on Ugly Betty in a guest role. He'll be playing a Seth Rogen type -- that's code for schlubby, nice guy -- who asks Betty out.

He's a fireman and the two go on a date that doesn't go very well. The term "date from hell" is how it's described. Hmm... could he set fire to the restaurant and then stop to put out the blaze?

I'm hoping for the best for Betty, and by that I mean the show. Since moving to the Wednesday 10 p.m. time slot, the show has not delivered the ratings that ABC has been hoping for. Of course, the network hasn't helped the show very much. Promotion has been spotty and most fans aren't even aware when the program airs these days.

I think they need to get the braces off Betty asap, people have been expecting her to evolve a little more than she has over the years.
