Watching Ugly Betty Tue, 21 Apr 2009 19:20:30 +0000 Series, 21 Apr 2009 19:20:30 +0000Lynn Little the sooner than planned return of Ugly Betty, what will happen to both ‘In the Motherhood’ and ‘Samantha Who’? The forecast looks bleak for Motherhood but possibly better for Samantha. Those aren’t the only shows waiting to hear about their fate.

While no ‘official’ word has been released about the renewal of ‘Ugly Betty’, it’s apparently been leaked by creditable sources that it will return for a fourth season.

There are several shows that are awaiting word on whether they will be around next fall. While many agree that UB will be returning, official word would be nice especially considering that last year they renewal announcement was made in February.

Some of my favorite shows like ‘Chuck’ are still awaiting word. NBC will have fewer hour-long slots in the fall when with the addition of Jay Leno’s new prime time daily show.

Ugly Betty Epsiode Rundown, 21 Apr 2009 18:56:41 +0000Lynn Little This week started off on the right foot as we received the news that Ugly Betty will return April 30th, a week earlier than scheduled.

The April 30th episode is entitled ‘Rabbit Test.’ Apparently we will meet Matt’s dad Calvin Hartley(played by David Rasche) who will invite our favorite Mode employees to his annual Easter egg hunt. Also Wilhemina wonders if William is really her son.

May 7th’s episode is ‘The Born Identity.’ It looks like Calvin Hartley is prepared to give Mode a bailout when baby William is kidnapped. Archie asks Hilda to be part of his next political campaign.

‘In the Stars’ will air May 14th and feature singer Adele. This is the episode that is suppose to have the impromptu wedding.
May 21st there will be back-to-back episodes titled ‘Curveball’ and ‘The Fall Issue.’

Ugly Betty returning April 30th, 20 Apr 2009 20:03:32 +0000Lynn Little news for Ugly Betty fans. According to Michael Urie, the show will return a week earlier than previously planned. The new return date is Thursday, April 30th at 7pm central.

Michael let Ugly Betty fans know about the programming change on Twitter. The change isn’t showing up in my DirecTV listing but the date has been changed on the ABC media press website. So it’s official! You may have to manually set your TIVO or DVR to record it.

That means we are less than 2 weeks away from all new Ugly Betty episodes.

‘The Stars’ Spoiler, 20 Apr 2009 13:41:40 +0000Lynn Little each day passes, we are one day closer to the return of ‘Ugly Betty.’ Even though it’s not currently on air, the spoilers keep rolling in about future episodes.

The New York Times blog has some information about the episode entitled ‘The Stars.’ Apparently the episode will have as a backdrop the Rose Center of Earth and Space at the Museum of Natural History.

The celestial center - or at least a set looking like the planetarium - will be part of a Mode photo shoot and an impromptu wedding. So not only will ‘Ugly Betty’ incorporate another New York landmark into the show but it will be the place for the wedding that we’ve been hearing rumors about for weeks. No word yet when this episode will air.

Happy Birthday America Ferrera, 18 Apr 2009 12:56:28 +0000Lynn Little Ferrera America Ferrera celebrates an important birthday today, April 18th. The star of ‘Ugly Betty’ turns 25. Happy Birthday, America. ]]> on Rachael Ray, 15 Apr 2009 19:43:52 +0000Lynn Little A glowing Ana Ortiz was a guest today on the Rachael Ray show - baby bump and all. She looked beautiful in a red fitted dress. I have a feeling this was a rerun since her baby bump was smaller. Still it was a good interview. Ana was also a good sport and did a little video segment for the show.

Ana plays Hilda on Ugly Betty and Hilda is a hairstylist. So Ana worked at a salon cutting hair, washing hair, and even colored hair.

So set the DVR to record Rachael Ray and see the interview for yourself. There are also excerpts on the Rachael Ray website.

Singer Adele to guest star on Betty, 15 Apr 2009 15:27:41 +0000Lynn Little Adele will be making an appearance as herself on Ugly Betty sometime in May. The episode entitled ‘The Stars’ will have Matt and Betty doing a photo shoot for YETI that turns into an impromptu wedding.

Adele won two Grammys in February for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her song “Chasing Pavements.”

Who’s getting married? There’s speculation that it could be Daniel and Molly. It also could be Ignacio and Elena. Or they could really throw us by introducing a new romance and that could be the wedding. Just a few more weeks until Betty returns and then the wait will be over.

Beckham on SpongeBob, 11 Apr 2009 21:42:15 +0000Lynn Little Victoria Beckham is lending her voice to SpongeBob Squarepants. The singer/actor/fashion designer had a guest appearance on Ugly Betty in 2007 when she played one of Wilhemina Slater’s bridesmaids.

Victoria will voice a sea goddess named Queen Amphitrite on an episode called “Neptune’s Party.” Look for it summer 2010.

Victoria apparently turned down a guest role on another ABC show ‘Desperate Housewives’ stating that there just wasn’t room in her hectic schedule.

Lindsey talks about break up, 08 Apr 2009 18:43:23 +0000Lynn Little Lindsay Lohan - who has been a guest on Ugly Betty as Kimmie, Betty’s rival from high school - is taking to US Weekly about her breakup with her girlfriend Samantha Ronson.

Ronson broke it off with Lohan last Friday. The couple had been together for two years. It’s Lindsay’s relationship with Samantha that many have speculated for her getting her life on track.

The whole article in the US Weekly but you can read more at Yahoo news.

When will Ugly Betty Return?, 02 Apr 2009 14:12:54 +0000Lynn Little For those who are missing Betty, there is some tentative good news to report. Betty is returning to her Thursday night time slot in early May.

This weeks’ TV Guide news answered a question about the return of Ugly Betty and stated that the show is set to return May 7th. However, ABC will run six episodes of Samantha Who? and may order additional episodes. It’s unclear if new episodes would push the tentative return of Ugly Betty back or if Samantha Who? will air at a different time slot.

I wish Samantha Who? well since I do like Christina Applegate but hope her success doesn’t push the return of Betty back further into May.

So barring a change from ABC, it looks like Ugly Betty will be back May 7th.
