Ugly Betty is moving to Wednesdays starting January 6. Here is the promo for Betty’s return.
This is mostly for episode 4.10, The Passion of the Betty, but, I think part of it is from episode 4.11, Back in her place. (I’ll be posting the synopses for these two very soon – stay tuned).
Of course, the part of this promo that stands out the most is the little snippet at about :12 when Amanda holds up a poster of an “improved” Betty’s chest to her (with what appear to be 50 DD’s in a low-cut shirt, complete with “B” necklace).
This, I think, is from episode 3.11. One of the plot lines in that one is “Wilhemina tortures Betty with beauty experiments for future stories”.
What I want to know is, did Salma Hayek pose for that poster?
The other distinguishable part of the promo is where Matt romantically dips Betty, but unfortunately does it into the open elevator, and of course the doors close on her head. I think that has to be a dream sequence. Certainly Matt is not that clueless, right?
Here’s a teaser about the upcoming synopses: the one for 3.10 has me confused, because it includes a scene we’ve already seen, and 3.11 has the chance to be a best-of-season episode.
Stay tuned for that.
BTW, Betty’s ratings luck still stinks. Fox has announced that it is moving American Idol to 9pm on Wednesdays, presumably to do the most damage to good-performing competitors. This would include Modern Family and Cougar Town. (The producers of The Middle have GOT to be thanking their lucky stars right now).
Certainly Cougar Town will take a hit from Idol, and that will lessen it’s lead-in effect for Ugly Betty. But then again, had they moved Betty to Tuesdays at 8, as some of us wanted, she would be going head-to-head with Idol, so I guess you could say that UB dodged a bullet.
We’ll just have to see when the ratings come out on January 28 (the day after the first 9pm Idol). Betty has a couple of weeks to get its audience built up.
