Mais we, but of course!

It’s officially summertime rerun season on TV. There’s nothing new to watch and unfortunately Jack Bauer rode off into the sunset. (We have our fingers crossed he will rise again on the Big Screen). A couple of new sitcoms have attempted to catch our attention, but let’s face it, if it’s not a reality show whereby someone is screaming a verbal beat down on another, why watch anyway?

I’d heard about a new show premiering on the TVLand station. I have never seen anything on TVLand. I have no idea what channel TVLand is, but after scanning through about 900 channels in twenty minutes, I finally found it and it was NOT in HD. What, are we suddenly Neanderthals around here?? Sheesh!

“HOT in Cleveland” is a new sitcom filmed the old fashioned way; live in front of a studio audience each week. The best part about that is that when Betty White cracks up Valerie Bertinelli, there’s no stopping her from laughing through her lines. And everyone who watches SNL knows that once the actor starts laughing, no one can keep a straight face. Let’s be honest, this is a typical sitcom, the premise is kind of silly and of course the scenarios are totally predictable, but the writers have the banter just right. Several lines had me and the Hubby laughing out loud. And the best line of all, at least to a Toledo native:

Wendy Malik’s character claims that they had better make the best of it, “Cleveland is the Paris of Ohio”, she says, to which Betty White replies, “No dear, that’s Toledo”.

Score one for the Other Ohio! Whoot! Whoot!

HOT in Cleveland stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendy Malik and the incomparable, Betty White. It is on Wednesday nights on TVLand and I recommend it, if you can find it.
