UPDATED: ABC has confirmed “Ugly Betty” will move to Wednesdays starting January. The show will take the 10/9 Central slot vacated by now-dead supernatural drama “Eastwick.”
Between the makeover, the promotion and the time slot moves, it’s hard keeping up with “Ugly Betty” these days.
ABC banished “Betty” from Thursdays to Fridays as its fourth season began this fall, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, “Betty” will soon switch to Wednesdays.
The recently vacated “Eastwick” slot is up for grabs, after all.
Zap2it reached out to ABC for comment, but the network would not confirm anything, saying the rumored move is just speculation.
We, however, are thinking all signs point to B. Suarez packing up to become part of the network’s Wednesday comedy block right quick.
ABC Wednesday is a pretty solid TV success story this year, with 3 of the 5 new shows — “The Middle,” “Modern Family” and “Cougar Town” — getting full season orders.
If “Ugly Betty” does in fact take the 10 o’clock slot that was previously occupied by the canceled “Eastwick,” it will most likely fare better than it has been on Friday nights.
