LOS ANGELES, CA (October 13, 2009) --Thursday nights are about to get a little bit ‘Bettyer’ as TV Guide Network prepares to telecast encore airings of the new season of “Ugly Betty” this fall. Longtime fans and curious newcomers that miss the Friday premiere of new “Ugly Betty” episodes on ABC can get caught up with TV Guide Network Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT, beginning October 22.

TV Guide Network also wants to give “Ugly Betty” fans a chance to be on television.

Fans who visit will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on the show, talk about which characters they love and which they love to hate, give their reactions to the latest episodes, and send a hello to their favorite cast members. A selection of YouTube video posts will air on TV Guide Network leading up to each Thursday “Ugly Betty” encore telecast.

On Saturday, October 17 between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m., “Ugly Betty” fans in the Los Angeles area are invited to meet in the second floor courtyard area of the Hollywood & Highland Center for a chance to be interviewed about the show. Fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite character and should come prepared to talk about their favorite “Ugly Betty” episodes and stars, and why they love the show. Fan interviews will air on TV Guide Network Thursdays before “Ugly Betty” encore airings.

Leading up to the October 22 encore telecast, TV Guide Network will air special “Ugly Betty” themed programming including a behind-the-scenes look at the set of “Ugly Betty,” cast interviews, a series overview, scoop on the new season, and fashion tips on how to emulate the characters’ signature styles on the show.

“Ugly Betty” is set in the superficial world of high fashion, where the sweet, intelligent, hard-working and fashionably challenged Betty Suarez from Queens takes a job in the cutthroat world of magazine publishing at Mode Magazine. Betty must prove that she is not just a super assistant with no fashion sense, but an aspiring career woman and editor-to-be while balancing her tumultuous love life and her familial responsibilities. Based on “Yo Soy Betty La Fea,” the groundbreaking Colombian telenovela that became an international phenomenon, “Ugly Betty” is produced by ABC Studios and distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
