Betty White Will Be On Your TV Every Week


Betty White has signed on to star in a new television comedy that will air beginning in June. Originally she was just supposed to be in the pilot for the show called "Hot In Cleveland," but she said what the heck and is now going to be on for the entire ten episode run. The show sounds pretty good. Well, the cast is good. Who knows if the actual show will be any good. Also in the cast are Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, and Wendie Malick. Apparently Betty plays the caretaker of the home shared by the other three women. It kind of sounds like Golden Girls but only about 50 with another Golden Girl watching over them.

Am I having a reading comprehension problem today, or is the writing on a couple of these posts just not making sense?

What does this mean...
"It kind of sounds like Golden Girls but only about 50 with another Golden Girl watching over them."

only about 50? Que?

I agree Sue Ellen - but I thought it was just me. Now I don't feel so alone.

Either way anything with Wendy Malick and Betty ought to be fun.

I took it to mean that it's like the Golden Girls, only about 50 years old, with an older caretaker looking out for them and interfering sweetly into their lives. Sounds fun to me.

This could be good. Betty sure is taking advantage of her popularity resurgence!

Comedy writing sucks so bad these days (Cougartown). I hope these women can rise above it.

I really like all of these actresses.

Could be fun and a nice alternative to Season Two of Blue Mountain State. :)

Sounds like a good cast, but if Bertinelli gets more than one line an episode, I won't be watching. She irritates the shit outta me.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

The Golden Girls are in their 50's on the show. I'm watching it now and Dorothy says that Rose is 55...

Ah well, I am just going to walk away from this.

I immediately thought, "The Facts of Life" with older women.

Milk it, Betty! And Wendie, Jane, et al along with her! Ride this wave as far as it goes...

I mean, they ARE in the biz to make money, right?

califblondy said...

I think Val and Jane should be lovers with all sorts of crazy complications

Wendie is Val's older sister. She loves men, screws anything walking, and totally disapproves of her sister's lifestyle.

Hilarity ensues as momma Betty doesn't have a clue whose screwing who (whom?)

Patty said...

I thought Facts of Life, too. The AARP years.

50 and 55 are golden years? I thought the women in Golden Girls were in their mid-to-late 60s. I guess the 50s are looking younger and younger as I get older and older. ;-D
