Trivia: Betty White is talking with Bob Newhart in the casino about how life-like a wax figure of Don Rickles is. Newhart and Rickles were best friends. There is a callback to this joke a little later when they are in prison and Newhart talks about a bald lesbian and White says that was Rickles too.
0/10. Oh how they get desperate on television. Hot In Cleveland was nothing more than a shameless, blatant ripoff the beloved sitcom, The Golden Girls (1984-1992). If anything, all this show did was revive the careers of three has beens and one never was. Betty White naturally got the best lines as if hearing crud coming from the mouth of an 80 something year old is funny. Wendi Malick honestly thinks she can be a flirt like Blanche was, instead this leftover putz from Just Shoot Me is merely playing a poor man's version of the character. Jane Leeves is here only because Peri Gilpin, more than likely, turned it down. Then there's Valerie Bertinelli. Ooh boy she's the one who's coasted the longest on having done nothing. Beyond that lame forgettable TV show One Day At A Time and being married to Eddie Van Halen, what's she ever done worth watching? This sitcom was nothing more than a ripoff of The Golden Girls mixed with complaints about the youth market in Hollywood and cliched worn out jokes on still being hot and desirable in your 40's and beyond. Watch only to see glimpses of Susan Lucci, a really beautiful at any age and still talented actress' guest appearances.
