Is there anything Betty White can’t do? If she started a chain of coffee houses, we’re thinking Starbucks would be in trouble!
Betty White’s sitcom Hot In Cleveland has become the #1 sitcom of this year, reaching 4.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
As if Betty White didn’t have enough projects on the horizon, the show has been picked up for a second season. 20 episodes have been ordered, which are slated to air starting in January 2011.
Here’s what Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land, had to say about the show’s success:
"'Hot in Cleveland's' ability to attract viewers from around the globe is a testament to the dynamic leading ladies – Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White – as well as to the fantastic creative vision of 'Frasier' veteran, Suzanne Martin. We are excited about producing 20 more episodes of this global hit."
That’s all nice to hear, Larry, but let’s be honest…you’ve got the #1 show because you’ve got Betty White. Plain and simple.
Do U think Hot In Cleveland deserves the spot as #1 sitcom?
