All Modes Lead to Rome

"Ugly Betty" starts her job this Thursday at Mode, a Manhattan fashion magazine.

I really hope nobody considered calling the show "Betty a la Mode." I just have these horrible visions of writers sitting around a table trying to Americanize "Yo Soy Betty La Fea" with one scribe trying to be punnier than the next at some late-night brainstorming session.

Curious about other shows the features magazines? Match each mag with its series.
