Watch Hot In Cleveland

Hot in Cleveland is a sitcom about four single women who share living space. Their personalities are polar opposite of one another. Three of the four have left Los Angeles and the shallow lifestyle that accompanies their careers in the entertainment industry. They decide on Cleveland because they believe that the people there are more down-to-earth.

Betty White plays the eldest member of the household. Elka is a feisty woman that tosses out insult after insult upon the other members of the household. It seems to work for her because they love her just the same. She is especially hard on Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli).

Valerie Bertinelli plays Melanie who is a woman with little self-confidence. That is what makes her such an easy target for Elka. She is very sensitive and naive. It is a mixture that provides a great mix of comedy as only Bertinelli can pull off.

Wendie Malick is the perfect fit for her role as Victoria. Victoria is an aging soap star that knows all the ropes when it comes to being snobby. She is still a loveable character. She is self-important which offers the show a hilarious look at the perceived notion that people have of television stars.

Jane Leeves plays the role of Joy. She is from England and has the accent to accompany her generally funny lines. Joy is a beautician who takes eyebrows very seriously. She has a bad relationship with her mother and does not do well on dates.

One of the main focuses in Hot in Cleveland is all of the women trying to find that special someone. The many antics they get into as a result are hilarious. They generally find ways to manhunt in groups. It includes barhopping, party going and blind dates set up by each other. Their first dates are usually last dates because they always find something wrong with the person they are with.

Casting of the show is a brilliant mixture of personalities. The actresses that portray each character have a proven track record of comedy under their belt. It is an excellent show that may not have received enough attention during its run. Look for guest stars such as Susan Lucci and Rick Springfield.
