Betty's Sitting Pretty for Full Season

ABC has given a full-season order to the freshman comedy Ugly Betty, which has averaged 14.8 million viewers in its first three weeks.... Meanwhile, not ones to raise the white flag just yet, Fox's down-but-not-out rookie comedies 'Til Death and Happy Hour, which air opposite Betty, have received orders for three additional scripts.... And as reported here on Saturday, NBC has opted not to shelve the ratings-rich ER for a mid-season hiatus, as originally planned.
