Family Friendly "Ugly Betty"
ABC's "Ugly Betty" was recognized last night at the Family Friendly Programming Forum's ninth annual Family Television Awards as "outstanding comedy programming for family viewing."
Awards were presented in 11 categories. Here are some of the winners:
UGLY BETTY, ABC (Comedy)

PLANET EARTH, Discovery Channel (Miniseries or Special)
HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2, Disney Channel (Movie)

America Ferrera ("Ugly Betty"), Kyle Chandler ("Friday Night Lights"), Zac Efron ("High School Musical") and Zachary Levi ("Chuck") were also honored.
The Family Friendly Programming Forum is an initiative of Association of National Advertisers.
It is not to be confused with the conservative Parents Television Council which brands shows like "Ugly Betty," "Brothers & Sisters" and "Desperate Housewives" inappropriate for families because of being supposedly sexually implicit and/or having gay content.
