Let’s face it: summer network TV programming sucks.
This is usually the time of year when cable and the premium channels thrive and having a Netflix subscription becomes dire.
Fortunately, it appeared that Betty White’s new TV Land sitcom, Hot In Cleveland might be a promising new option.
The show’s debut last Wednesday pulled in a TV Land record of 4.75 million viewers, thus making it the most-watched telecast in the network’s history, according to Entertainment Weekly.
It also debuted to overwhelming positive reviews. Read More

Ladies of a certain age seem to be having their moment in the media right now. Last night, I watched a few episodes of Sunset Daze, the new reality show on WE about feisty folks living in a retirement home in Arizona, whose ages range from their 60s to their 70s.

We were excited when the Betty White love started. We were excited when it was announced she would host. And now, we have her promos to keep us occupied until the actual show this Saturday night. We’ll be opening a post that night so everyone can comment-liveblog their thoughts, so keep your eyes peeled! And check out her promos under the jump.
I think this means that she and Jay-Z will have to be in a sketch together. If they aren’t, I’ll be disappointed.

Yes! Betty White will be a more permanent fixture on TV, this time as a recurring character in a new series premiering on TV Land in June, “Hot in Cleveland.” According to a company press release, White will play the “snarky but loveable…property caretaker” to a home of other bankable small screen names—Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves and Valerie Bertinelli. If only the premise of the show felt a little less disturbing.
Apparently Malikc, Leeves and Bertinelli are on board a plane that makes an emergency landing in Cleveland. Read More
