Burning question for the broadcast networks: Why doesn’t Doris Roberts have her own sitcom? The 81-year-old co-star from Everybody Loves Raymond has no less than three appearances scheduled over the next month on ABC and TVLand.

The actress told EW exclusively that she’ll return to ABC’s The Middle – which stars her Raymond pal Patricia Heaton –to reprise her role as Brick’s teacher on May 25. “Patty and I go head to head once again,” Roberts said. “I still think I’m right about her kid and she still thinks I’m evil and mean.” Roberts will also play a patient in the April 28 episode of Grey’s Anatomy. “It is a serious problem for me. I can’t say much more than that. You will have to see it to believe it. The language I use in it is pretty wild.  It is a character who is very different from myself.”

After that, she’ll show up in one of the final episodes of Hot In Cleveland. “That’s a wild one. I get punched by Betty White,” she said. “A real pow punch and I go flying. I play a woman who had an affair with her husband in the past and she is angry.”

Good call, Doris — saving the best for last. (Reporting by Carrie Bell)

    The weird thing about Doris Roberts is, she always plays such bossy, pushy, often loud characters, while in real life she is without fail calm, soft-spoken, restrained, and polite.

    Love ya Doris. Way back to the ‘Angie’ sitcom days.

    Doris Roberts & Peter Boyle were brilliant on Everybody Loves Raymond. Everbody else on that show kind of bored me.

    LOVED her as Mildred Krebbs on Remington Steele!

    Has Doris Robert had a face lifting or something? She looks kind of weird in the picture above.

    Other than I think she’s terrific. Can’t wait to see her next to Betty White – both of them are television legends.

    Doris deserves to have her own sitcom. Perhaps something wit Kathryyn Helmond as the 2 widows.
