    Comfort food to its core, the show is a retro casserole tapping into a popular appetite for leftovers.

    It's a broad, unsubtle sitcom, one that may be worth watching for White, but otherwise is only moderately amusing at best.

    I simply hope Hot in Cleveland can give us more than the lukewarm pilot promises. Ohio deserves better, and so do these fabulous ladies.

    Hot in Cleveland is a broad, Vaudeville-style sitcom where everything--story, characters, sets, sound engineering--is only there in service of the rat-a-tat of one-liners.
  5. This is a cast that for the most part has experienced good, even great, writing in the past, and while I'm not saying Martin's pilot is laugh-free, it's a sight closer to her deservedly short-lived ABC sitcom "Hot Properties" than it is to "Frasier."

    Hot in Cleveland, in other words, is like an artificially created rerun, as if someone discovered the masters of a sitcom that had been locked up in a vault since 1987. And I don't mean that in a good way.

    Sitcoms like these deservedly died in the 80s, but after the decade of reality shows and cringecoms, I would categorise this show as comfortSitcoms like these deservedly died in the 80s, but after the decade of reality shows and cringecoms, I would categorise this show as comfort TV. If nothing else, Betty White gets the best snide lines and keeps the trio of Cleveland cougars under control. Full Review »

    I was extremely disappointed. There was so much promotion for this show that I expected something good. I watched the show last night and saw I was extremely disappointed. There was so much promotion for this show that I expected something good. I watched the show last night and saw 4 seasoned actresses on a show that needs life support because in my eyes it is dying before it even gets started. This was no doubt the worst show I have seen in a long time. I feel sorry for the actresses. They are good actresses but this show was the pits. Completely and totally stupid show. Terry 12.
