Have You Seen this Show?

Ok...kind of a bit of a silly post today...but have you seen "Hot in Cleveland"??  It is a new series on, of all channels, TV Land and is produced by Sean Hayes ("Jack" from "Will and Grace"). I would not have known about it had I not happened to catch a commercial on the radio the day it premiered. 

This show is a bit of a throw back to sitcoms from the 80's. It is filmed in front of a "live studio audience", how often do you hear that at the beginning of a show these days? Of course (also a bit of a throw back to 80's sitcoms) the four main characters are played by: Betty White (OMG...I just love her!), Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves.  

They play three women from Los Angeles who land in Cleveland due to plane trouble on their way to Paris. They are surprised to discover how inexpensive and normal things are in Cleveland. They end up renting a house and discover it comes with a caretaker played by Betty White. What ensues is a plethora of funny one liners, mostly delivered by White. It's comedy can be a bit predictable at times, but nonetheless funny. 

I have set my DVR to record each week, after all, it is Betty White!

It looks great - it has a wonderful cast, at least! :-)
