It seems to be getting better and finding its niche.

I think this was one of the first shows on ABC to get picked up for a full season, so no it won't get canned anytime soon.

There is no way this is getting canned.

I love the vibrant colors in this show, and the over the top performances. Vanessa Williams still looks amazing.

My boyfriend said this about Betty's nephew's costume: "But Gene Kelly was the butch one..."

can someone please tell me what this show is about - I watched a bit of it last night.

1) How did she get the job?
2) People seem to like her, is this an internship?

The CEO of the publication company appointed his playboy son to be president of MODE magazine, but he didn't want him to always sleep with the secretaries. So the CEO hired Betty to be his son's assistant because she was unattractive and he figured he'd get more work done that way.

Initially, Daniel (the son) wanted to fire Betty and made her job difficult. But she eventually won him over and has saved his ass on numerous occasions.

The rest of the staff is very catty and makes fun of Betty but I think deep down they like her because she is a much better person than they all are.

Loved the Betty costume as well, including the eyebrows. Becki Newton is nice eye candy as well.

I died when Marc showed up looking like Betty (and forgot to take off the thick eyebrows after being told to ditch the outfit).

Betty's lunch date and her social awkwardness and her handling of the boyfriend are always good for some physical comedy and laughs.

I was surprised that Amanda let down her guard in front of Betty in the ladies room. Amanda's growing on me (Becki Newton is actually pretty good of portraying all forms of snarky, but not letting us forget she's still a human underneath it all). Justin as Gene Kelly was pitch-perfect, he does steal every scene he is in. Hilda's got a smokin' booty.

Will Daniel really curb his philandering ways after the pep talks with his mother and later his father? Will seeing the cost of such make him mends his nightly ambitions with the all-too-willing ladies?

Betty's dad's love for Halloween was funny, as were the reactions of his 2 daughters (giving us the idea they are so used to all the pranks growing up with him as their dad, thus more annoyed by the pranks in a collective sisterly way).
