Some ugly news for "Ugly Betty" fans: One of the few remaining original "Ugly Betty" episodes won't air tonight on Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO-TV (Channel 9). Instead viewers will see a three-year-old St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital show, "Fighting for Life," with Marlo Thomas.
Channel 9 scheduled the 2005 St. Jude's show months ago, as part of the station's commitment to the hospital. "ABC sprung the new episode on us just recently," says Scott Dailey, a Channel 9 programmer.
You'll have to set your DVR for 1:05 a.m. Friday (late tonight) for Channel 9's delayed broadcast. Those north of town can watch it on Dayton's Channel 22. Or you can catch it online.
One more TV note: "Grey's Anatomy" tonight (9 p.m., Channels 9, 22) is the last original episode of the season, until the writers' strike ends. Also new tonight: "30 Rock," "My Name Is Earl," "ER," "CSI" and "Without A Trace." Most of them are nearly out of episodes too. Then TV really gets ugly.
