Betty White has done it again. (Okay, fine - with the help of Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick.)
The season premiere of her latest comedy, “Hot in Cleveland,” has set a record for TVLand, pulling in nearly 5 million viewers on its first night, according to TVByTheNumbers.com. The episode was the network’s most-watched and highest-rated show ever.
Thursday was also the highest-rated traffic day for the network’s website, TVLand.com, attracting 276,000 unique visitors, with 117,000 of those visitors coming for “Hot in Cleveland” show pages alone, the network said in a press release.
"Hot in Cleveland" Loved the show. Everyone did a great job, Looking forward to the next one. Only wish it was on earlier in the evening. Can't stay up that late still working and need to get up early in morning. I have to catch it the second time around. Thanks for rerunning it again on Sat.
I watched it for Jane Leeves and Wendy Malick. No, it's not cutting-edge, but I delight in the premise of four single women of a certain age. I'm returning next week.
About the premiere of "Hot In Cleveland"... Thanks to an incessant, irritating, intrusive laugh track, any sense of dramatic form or ensemble was completely overwhelmed by a barage of non-stop electronic hilarity. This, coupled with some seriously over-the-top acting, turned what should have been sophisticated light comedy into something as subtile as a train wreck and almost as amusing. "Hot" it was not.
Dang it! Missed it! Where can I see it online?
this show smells worse than Betty Poops diaper.
Betty White is a goddess.....comic genius......God bless her.
Horrible...I'm from Cleveland and watched it for that. I did not laugh one time. It was stale, juvenile and just plain boring. I cannot believe that it was well-received. Poor Cleveland! It deserves better.
I actually like BW, and adored the GG's, and so I decided to give this show a try. But I must agree with you. I didn't find it funny one bit. I think it 'tried' to hard to be funny and crashed and burned. People are laughing or liking it merely cause BW is in it and that's sad. A show should be judged based on it's content, and performances. Not it's cast.
I loved it! Hats off to TVLand!!! I mean 4 fantastic ladies all in one show!!! The writing might need to sharpen up though to match this extraordinarily talented cast to keep it going. Great premise for a sitcom, and I can't wait until next week. Hope they bring John Schneider back again, too!
I decided to give this show a "I'll-watch-it-once" just to see how it was – how it was? HILARIOUS. Definitely on the DVR now. I forgot what a great actress VB is; and Wendie Malick is hilarious. Betty White could sneeze and make me laugh. Nice work!
I watched the show and LOVED it! Betty White is truly a gem and I hope we have many more years with her entertaining us!
GREAT SHOW...LOVED IT. What a great cast!
The 3 ladies starring with Betty White are all good but they pale in comparison with the other 3 ladies she costarred with in Golden Girls. Great job Betty! You rock!
Loved it! Watched it twice. The whole cast was hilarious but of course BW stole the show!!!
LOVED it! Betty White rocked, the whole cast was awesome.
this pic includes 4 Bettys.......way to go chicas!
Betty White is a national treasure...America's Grandmother.
I truly agree with you. I watched it three times.
I would like to see BW as the next villan in a James Bond movie. What do you think ?
Great show! I think the combination of these four ladies together is outstanding. But, Betty White is still my number one.
WTG TV Land!
