"UGLY BETTY" KICKS OFF ITS FOURTH SEASON WITH TRANSFORMATIONS GALORE AND A NEW LOOK FOR BETTY IN A TWO-HOUR PREMIERE, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16 ON ABC

Kristen Johnston, Lynn Redgrave, Judy Gold, Smith Cho and Yaya DaCosta Guest Star

"Ugly Betty" returns for a fourth season with a two-hour season premiere, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Note: This program was originally scheduled to air on Oct. 9.

In the first hour, "The Butterfly Effect" Part 1 (8:00-9:00 p.m.), Betty finds that everything is changing as she begins her new job as associate features editor, especially since her boss is her ex-boyfriend, Matt Hartley, who is still unhappy about their breakup. In addition, Betty's new officemate, Megan (Smith Cho), openly resents her, while Marc is constantly undermining her because he felt he was more deserving of the promotion. Meanwhile, without Betty as his assistant, Daniel is adrift, still mourning the loss of his wife, Molly. Betty tries to help Megan out on an assignment and connects with a thoughtful insect jewelry designer, Olivia (Lynn Redgrave), while Justin starts high school and is victimized by bullies�but won't tell his mom, Hilda. Claire Meade is finding that her power struggle at the company has her sitting pretty � for the moment -- opposite Wilhemina, who lost her claim to the Meade throne last season. But Wili has perhaps an even bigger problem than job security � she is harboring a secret at home that is driving Marc to distraction.

In "The Butterfly Effect," Part 2 (9:00-10:00 p.m.), Betty gets to run her own Mode photo shoot at the United Nations to promote their anti-malaria initiative, "Nothing but Nets," but her big opportunity becomes a baptism by fire when Daniel's neediness takes its toll, and Matt openly demoralizes her. Meanwhile, Amanda does some soul-searching when she bonds with Daniel's new temp, Helen (Kristen Johnston), a career receptionist as fabulous as Amanda is. Wili makes it her personal mission to protect a loved one, and Hilda reaches out to Marc to figure out how to help Justin.

"Ugly Betty" stars America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, Eric Mabius as Daniel Meade, Tony Plana as Ignacio, Ana Ortiz as Hilda, Judith Light as Claire Meade, Becki Newton as Amanda, Michael Urie as Marc, Mark Indelicato as Justin, Daniel Eric Gold as Matt Hartley and Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina Slater.
