Critic Consensus: Hot in Cleveland is a proud throwback to the classic sitcoms of the '80s whose more off-putting moments are made watchable by Betty White's pitch-perfect comic delivery and Valerie Bertinelli's lovable charm.

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.
Comfort food to its core, the show is a retro casserole tapping into a popular appetite for leftovers.
Hot in Cleveland is a by-the-numbers sitcom with a couple of laughs, an inoffensive premise and four seasoned actresses who make the material much better than it is.
Hot in Cleveland [brings] 156 years of TV acting experience with them. It's not wasted. The sitcom is funny and fresh, and the actors appear to be having the time of their lives.
The show works, though, by doing just what Golden Girls did, making White one of several equally interesting characters.
