There wasn't anything pretty about The Beautiful Life's premiere last night.

The CW model drama, starring Mischa Barton on the comeback trail, and featuring Ashton Kutcher in the producer's credits, was watched by just 1.5 million, per early Nielsen numbers.

The show proved especially inept with young women, who were mostly engaged at 9 p.m. by Fox's still-going-strong Glee (6.6 million).  

Overall, the season closer of America's Got Talent led Wednesday with a finale-record 15.5 million who still can't believe how good the Rolling Stones look on Susan BoyleJay Leno hung on to most of the crowd, with his new 10 p.m. show climbing to 13.1 million viewers.
