Ugly Betty: the Sanctity of Thursday Night TV

Billboard found on

I am a creature of habit. I like television and I particularly like to find a regular show or shows to follow. Once upon a time it was "Dallas", later followed by "Knots Landing" then "90210". I then became entranced with "The West Wing". That was and probably always will be my favorite.

Now I look forward to Thursday nights and "Ugly Betty". It is amusing, has wonderful clothes, incredible production values, gorgeous color and eye popping sets. The characters are fun and the story line is a positive one. It embraces old fashioned values like: fidelity, love, family first and substance over style although there's plenty of style to go around.

I don't go out on Thursday nights and I don't take phone calls. I plop down on the couch with my glass of fizzy water, put my feet up, darken the room and watch the tube. Gotta go! It's on.

I'm addicted to all kind of crime stuff... fro foresincs to dr. Sloan... well, I can resist the latter easier... :D

I love Ugly Betty, too! Don't you love that the characters are so multi-dimensional? Especially ones that seemed to be one-dimensional in the beginning (Mark and Amanda).

My all-favorite show is ER and I'm so sad that it's ending this month, and I understand the reasons behind the producers' decision, but I don't have to like it.
