Fresh off its People's Choice Award win for Best Cable TV Comedy and not as fresh off its Emmy win for Outstanding Art Direction in a Multi-Camera Series, Hot in Cleveland has been renewed for a fourth season.
Despite a severe drop-off in viewership, the TV Land comedy is still that network's highest-profile series. Hot in Cleveland debuted to 4.8 million viewers, but the Season 3 premiere last month only netted 1.9 million viewers. Perhaps because most of its viewers died after Season 2. (Haha, old people joke! Don't worry, I know I'm going to hell.)
The show stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, and Wendie Malick as past-their-prime Hollywood starlets who've find a warmer home in Cleveland. The show's main draw is Betty White, who plays an elderly caretaker who takes the women in.
TV Land is also working on an untitled spin-off of the series that stars Cedric the Entertainer. Cedric guest-starred as minister Reverend Boyce in a Season 2 episode, which served as a backdoor pilot for the spin-off. The show will follow his character as he returns to his hometown of St. Louis and copes with his wild past as an R&B; singer.
Someone who has seen this show tell me: Is it worth checking out? Apparently Betty White talks about sex, Nazis, and marijuana, so maybe it's good?
