Tv Season Info

Season 3 of the sitcom earned a Favorite Cable TV Comedy nomination at the People's Choice Awards, so it's fitting that Elka (Betty White) has quite a choice of her own when three suitors are vying for her hand: her fiancé, Fred (Buck Henry); her ex-boyfriend Max (Carl Reiner); and Bobby (Don Rickles), the husband she thought was dead. And since it wouldn't be TV Land without a blast (or two) from the past, White is reunited with a pair of costars from her days on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" when Ed Asner appears as a country club president, and Georgia Engel shows up for the first time in a recurring role as Mamie, an old friend of Elka's. Meanwhile, Victoria (Wendie Malick) dates a hand model (executive producer Sean Hayes); Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) crashes a funeral to find a missing dress; and Joy (Jane Leeves) goes out with a blind man who thinks she's 26. Other guest stars include Susan Lucci, Regis Philbin, Laura San Giacomo, Cybill Shepherd, David Spade and Joan Rivers.

Critic Reviews for Hot in Cleveland Season 3

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Sometimes the writing is very good. At other times, it comes off better than it really is because the dialogue is delivered by four accomplished actresses.

The gang delivers a ton of mostly low-brow laughs, but they're laughs nonetheless. You could do worse.
