Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

Top 20 Greatest NYC TV Shows — #13

Ugly Betty (2006 – 2010)

13 Ugly Betty

The charm of this recent comedy is the two entirely different New York worlds it inhabits — The title character lives in a small house in Queens, among working class families with blue collar jobs. Every morning, she lives her dream to work in the magazine world by going to work in the city’s beloved Woolworth Building. The fashion magazine for which she works could stand in for any one of the many glamor pages that are printed in this city (Vogue, Glamour, Elle, etc.). But on top of this, it is a NYC underdog story. In this town, every misfit and outsider, with a little unconventional inspiration and grit, can find a place to belong.
