"Ugly" Betty?

There's an advert on some bus stops round here that's bothering the hell out of me. Apparently a programme called "Ugly Betty" is starting here on 5th January.

Um. Is it me, or is she not ugly at all? The photo on the bus stops shows the lead character with thick, glossy brown hair; smooth, unblemished coffee-coloured skin; deep brown eyes; and a pair of totally hot reddish purple geek glasses. Sure, she has braces on her teeth, but they're not forever. And she dresses like Velma from Scooby Doo, but that kind of nerd chic is refreshing compared to fashion victims.

Um. She's not ugly. She's a beautiful geek girl, and I would love to have her pick me up in the library. So, er, what's the programme's point?
