    Poorly acted, poorly written and its premise is insulting.

    Sitcoms 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.

    This show reminds me of the old sitcoms of the 70s: the kind Betty White and Valerie Bertinelli made there bones starring in. Luckily there are enough funny one liners to keep the show interesting.

    Hot in Cleveland is formulaic, but has tremendous good will on its side.

    Add Betty White, good as the wisecracking caretaker of a house Bertinelli leases, and you've got a 1980s sitcom transplanted to 2012, which I don't intend as a recommendation.
  3. If the premise is somewhat forced, it sets up a situation with enough comic potential to sustain Hot in Cleveland indefinitely.
