On the home page of IMDB Pro right now is a picture of Betty White with the heading –
“HOT IN CLEVELAND is TV Land’s most –watched ever.”
Imagine – FOUR WOMEN (the youngest of which is 49) who in one show manage to bring in –
THE MOST FANS of TV Land’s History!
Four Actresses whose total ages add up to: 246!
Seriously this is HUGE news in a world where actresses like me start to worry when we’re barely on the wrong side of quarter-life.
Even though I had no idea what channel TV Land was on (thank god for Tivo!) I watched “HOT IN CLEVELAND” last night to see four sitcom legends (all previously on mega-networks) do something out-of-the-box and in-the-box at the very same time.
And BTW, they were – AWESOME!
HOT IN CLEVELAND may be pure sitcom but it manages to–
NOT feel outdated.
The jokes are modern–
but not dumb-funny,
or potty-humor funny,
or trying-too-hard funny
just– FEEL GOOD FUNNY
Jane Leeves, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Betty White!
You ladies are–
HOT and HILARIOUS.
Way to go super-smarty producer Sean Hayes! Bet you’re laughing all the way to the bank. (And you managed to make TV news that rivals the Lakers’ big win and Roberto and Ali flying through the air in LION KING!)
Interestingly, HOT IN CLEVELAND is now the hottest show in TV Land’s history. How cool is that!?
(How hot do you plan to be when you’re hovering around the half-century mark? Share in the comments.)
