"Hot" continues it's streak of well-performed and smartly written television, with one exception. I'm sure we can all understand the reasons behind casting Joe Jonas as Melanie's son, but his performance was the weak link in an otherwise brilliant episode. I truly believe a part this big warranted a true actor to be cast. As always Betty White was charming and brilliant. Guest star Dave Foley's witty and well-timed jokes only enhanced the hilarious physical comedy from Wendie Malick this week. Wendie had the chance to open up and show the viewers even more of her range, something I felt was long overdue. The cherry on top was Susan Lucci as herself. It's nice to see Susan outside Erika Kane.
The ninth episode of Hot in Cleveland, the first season's penultimate installment, proves to be the best half hour yet. Tonight's episode featured an Emmy-worthy performance by Wendie Malick, and a great, believable mom performance by Valerie Bertinelli. Betty White was not the intangible she usually is, but she still did have a few good lines including calling Justin Bieber a girl.
Dave Foley has guest starred on every sitcom ever, but he was great here as well. Joe Jonas was not memorable, however, he was not as obtrusive as I thought that he would be.
