Bette was a sitcom in the truest sense of the word. In the tradition of Lucy & Ethel, Bette Midler & Joanna Gleason are incredibly funny together. Bette is over the top in ALL the right ways. I loved this show and am so sad it was canceled. I can't wait for the entire season to be released on DVD.
With appearances by Dolly Parton, Oprah Winfrey, Tony Danza and others, you can't miss with this show. I only wish the show would have done better and lasted longer. It is a great format for the Divine Miss M, and I fear that this was her last shot at it. Great premise, funny writing and hysterical performances.
