Just when America Ferrera's Ugly Betty is starting to look beautiful, ratings for her once popular show are becoming hideous. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ABC comedy's two-hour Season 4 premiere Friday night drew a disappointing 5.1 million viewers, and scored an even more disappointing 1.4 preliminary rating among adults 18–49 (a key demographic that advertisers watch).

If you were planning on sitting in front of the tube this Friday—popcorn in hand—to watch the season four premiere of ABC’s Ugly Betty—you might want to make other plans. The Hollywood Reporter says ABC “has decided to push the premiere of the dramedy from Oct. 9 to Oct. 16,” in order to air same-week reruns of some of their new shows in its place. Instead, the two-hour premiere of Betty is now scheduled to air at 8 p.m.

Move over Ugly Betty and make room for Betty Suarez! Looks like the ABC television honchos weren't kidding when they told fans that America Ferrera's titular character was going to be debuting a new look this season.
The shift makes sense with the show's plot line as Betty has just been promoted to a job as Features Editor at Mode magazine. No longer a lowly assistant, she has to step up her style game in order to accurately reflect her new found status on the staff.

We all know that Ugly Betty has never had any trouble attracting the boys, but now she better watch out because porn mogul Michael Lucas is set to guest-star on the hit ABC show next season.
Lucas won the walk-on role through a charity auction held by the Stonewall Community Foundation. "I paid $18,000 for the opportunity, and this is a chance for adult stars to step out of their box," said Lucas. "My appearance will also show American audiences that there is no reason a porn star can’t appear on national television."
