Ugly Betty might be the best new show of the season - that I've seen so far, anyway. The tone is spot on: not too silly, not too serious. Some of the characters' behavior is frivolous, but Betty (America Ferrera) is simultaneously grounded and endearing. We'll have to see where it goes from here, but it was a promising debut (in the ratings as well, according to Rick Kissell of Variety).
In today's 10 Actors to Watch section in Variety, Chad Gervich has a short feature on Ferrera. I contributed a quick look at Lizzy Caplan of The Class.
