ABC will yank "Ugly Betty" from its Thursday slot to make way for a new comedy block. Starting March 26, the new comedy "In the Motherhood" will kick off the network's Thursday prime-time lineup, followed by "Samantha Who?" with Christina Applegate. Now in its third season, "Ugly Betty" stars America Ferrera as a plain-looking young woman who works at an upscale New York fashion magazine. "Ugly Betty" started promisingly but has lately stumbled in the ratings. The 8 p.m. Thursday slot is critical for ABC because it leads in to "Grey's Anatomy," one of the network's top-rated series.

THIS month, America Ferrera is gracing the cover of W magazine, a fashion title known better for striking photography and society coverage than for stands of principle. Ferrera is being feted for her portrayal of Betty Suarez, assistant to the editor in chief of Mode magazine, the fictional fashion title at the center of ABC's "Ugly Betty." Her character has pluck, determination and ... braces. And odd clothes. And an allergy to the sort of small talk that would make her job so much easier.
