ABC Family To Air "Ugly Betty" Marathon
For those of you who have not seen the early episodes of ABC's truly brilliant new comedy "Ugly Betty" the network will now give you several opportunities to catch up with the show before the new episodes kick off in January.
ABC's sister network on basic cable, ABC Family will air a 10-hour marathon of all "Ugly Betty" episodes that have aired so far this season on Sunday, December 31 starting at 9am (the showcase ends at 7pm).
Starting tomorrow, December 25, all 10 episodes will also be available on ABC.com for viewers within the United States. Normally, the viewers can see the last episode aired as well as the previous 3 episodes, that is 4 episodes in total.
For a limited time, ABC.com will present all 10 episodes that have aired so far, until the show premieres the first new episode for 2007 (the episode "Swag" airs January 4), at which point the video player reverts to 4-episode archive.
This special offer will also apply to other ABC dramas currently available on its online video player. They are: Desperate Housewives (10 episodes), Lost (6 episodes), Grey's Anatomy (10 episodes).
As of tomorrow, Brothers and Sisters (10 episodes) and What About Brian (9 episodes) are also available under the same conditions.
Day Break and The Nine, the shows previously offered by ABC.com are no longer advertised, but ABC did promise to conclude Day Break's 13-episode run.
The drama's online broadcasts will however be delayed due to "unforeseen music clearance issues".
