Tonight, ABC's biggest new hit, 'Ugly Betty', gets its first crossover!

With Monday Night Football?

Actually it will happen on the pre-game show on ESPN, 'Monday Night Countdown' at 7 pm, EST. Mode magazine editor in chief Daniel Meade and his rival for the job, Amanda, will try to instill some fashion sense into Bill Belichick, the head coach of the New England Patriots. As part of the "plot", they're doing this in an attempt to lure more male readers to the fashion magazine, so at least it makes sense, story-wise.

Unfortunately for them, Betty Suarez gets hold of the Photoshopped results and adds her own touches - which probably mean oversized glasses and a poncho, and maybe even braces!

Toobworld takes in all manner of shows, but I never would have guessed 'Monday Night Countdown' to find itself in that tally.

And apparently, this isn't the first crossover 'MNC' has done with a show from its parent network, ABC. I heard that Ted Danson's psychiatrist from 'Help Me, Help You' (which I've yet to see due to scheduling conflicts) showed up last week to do a bit of head-shrinking with Terrell Owens. And Owens is already represented in Toobworld appearances with 'Sesame Street' and that controversial opening sketch for 'MNF' last year with Nicolette Sheridan of 'Desperate Housewives'.
