ABC�s freshman �Ugly Betty� took a solid second place in the 8 o�clock hour to CBS� �Survivor: Fiji� in Total Viewers (13.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (4.5/12), beating out NBC�s comedies on both counts (�My Name is Earl�/�The Office� = 9.0 million & 4.2/11). �Betty� dominated the hour with Women 18-34, outrunning second-place �Survivor� by 43% (6.7/17 vs. 4.7/12).
