  1. TV Land's first original sitcom is the surprise of the summer, a sparkling, breezy comedy, in no small part due to the casting of this year's It Girl, 88-year-old Betty White as a cantankerous caretaker.

    Hot in Cleveland is bright, funny and witty. And, yes, it's a purely traditional sitcom, filmed in front of a studio audience, which clearly appreciates the jokes.
  3. 75
    Hot in Cleveland is formulaic, but has tremendous good will on its side.
  4. This is not perhaps the most daring or avant-garde comedy on television, but there is nothing shameful about Hot in Cleveland. It's actually kind of fun.

    Tartly written with good actresses in clearly defined roles, this sitcom hardly breaks new ground but unearths old gags in such unapologetic fashion that it proves reasonably good company.

    There's something pleasing about the old-fashioned drawn-from-farce quality of Hot in Cleveland. It fits in perfectly on TV Land since it already feels like a relic, a show from an alternate reality where Seinfeld never happened, let alone the likes of single-camera mockumentary-style sitcoms like The Office and Arrested Development.

    Surely White must have the willpower to decline some offers--especially after the long and appreciative bask she's recently enjoyed--and she could have let this job pass. The same cannot be quite so true for Hot in Cleveland's headliners, sitcom veterans who all give off a strong and desperate whiff of trying way too hard to be even mildly funny.

TheI started watching all the Hot in Cleveland episodes a few weeks ago. I'd seen it before, but thought nothing of it. Now, I'm hooked. The characters are very interesting and very funny. It's one of the best shows i'm watching right now. It's strange that a 16 year old male would be interested in a show of menopausal woman who act like hookers, but I do indeed find the show clever and very funny. Expand

    It has a good cast, and I believe it will get better and smoother with time.

    I am of this age group and I cannot stand this show. I have always loved these actress's and looked forward to them in this show but theI am of this age group and I cannot stand this show. I have always loved these actress's and looked forward to them in this show but the characters are bad! I do not like any of them. Its just to stupid. I loved Golden girls. What I hate about this show is they repeat to much of the previous show with each following show. So you get little time to see anything interesting. It does not move along well or have any point to the story lines. I cannot stand seething any of them act like total idiots. I Hate this show! To me, it is not funny at all. Just idiotic. Expand
