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.
