This Is UGLY!! - Ugly Betty Has Been Cancelled!

What does this have to do with the role of the legal secretary? Well, everything if you're like me and looking for comic relief wherever you can find it. Plus, I can totally relate to America Ferrera's character on many days.

ABC just announced that this will be the last season for "Ugly Betty" which wraps up in April. . .do I hear syndication?

I can't imagine that we've seen the last of Wilhelmina Slater(Vanessa Williams) who makes "Cruela DeVille" look like a den mother.

What am I going to do on Wednesday nights now? Oh, well, at least we have "The Deep End," on Thursday night, right?

For A "Feel Good" Friday Night - "New In Town" on DVD


What do you get when you cross a high-powered woman executive from Miami with a small-town Minnesota union boss?


A good feeling all over.

Okay, so anything with Harry Connick, Jr. in it usually gets my vote. I admit - I adore him. But, Harry Connick, Jr. and Renee Zellweger really do have the perfect chemistry in this romantic comedy.

Siobhan Fallon Hogan will steal your heart, you'll have a lot of love for Minnesota, a healthy respect for snow, and you might even start scrapping after watching this one.

Perfect for a cold winter's night.
