TV: Ugly Betty

We dogs sit at home during the long days and appreciate the tv shows that ABC puts online for our enjoyment. Lately, we've become very attached to the show Ugly Betty, a remnant of The Devil Wears Prada were a young "ugly" girl from Queens becomes an assistant to a Vogue-like publication.

The plots are simplistic and predictable, and the characters are caricatures of actual people. But despite these gaping flaws, we find ourselves again and again turning on to see the dazzling metallic smile of America Ferrara.

Quick vote: Though written like the worst of the Disney cartoons, this show will warm your heart and leave you giggling to yourself over the high morals of Betty juxtaposed with the shallowness of the world of fashion at Mode magazine.
