Poor Betty. She can save the day on screen, but not off…
Seven has pulled Ugly Betty from its schedule again, effective immediately.
Last night the show rated a disappointing 573,000 viewers, beaten by a repeat of Law and Order: SVU (1.08m) and the AFL / NRL Footy Shows (1.02m). The show only returned for one episode after being removed in June. Seven trailed with a 25% evening share to Nine’s 30.4%, TEN was close with 23.6%.
Trinny & Susannah Undress the Nation is also removed from schedule (there is talk in the UK their show may even be axed).
For Thursday September 4 Seven currently plans:
7:30pm Make me a Supermodel
8:30pm Ghost Whisperer “Holiday Spirit”
9:30pm Ghost Whisperer “Slam”
10:20pm Family Guy “Back to the Woods”
10:50pm American Dad “Haylias”
11:20 Beauty & The Geek
Double Whisperer plus Family Guy / American Dad doubles follow on September 11.
Ugly Betty of course was hailed as the salvation of Seven in February 2007 leading the network charge with its “Beautiful Sunday” nights.
