Ugly Betty is making an earlier than expected return to ABC’s lineup. ABC has announced that they’re pulling Thursday comedies In the Motherhood and Samantha Who? a week earlier than originally planned. That means Ugly Betty will return to the schedule on Thursday, April 30th at 8:00pm, not May 7th as originally planned.
The move is likely in response to continued poor ratings for both In the Motherhood and Samantha Who?.
