We roll out the best of the rest below, including Spongebob, Battlestar, Mad Men, Glee, and, yes, the Kardashians. We’re talking wall-to-wall weekend television, people. Keep reading…
Tag: Hot in Cleveland (14-26 of 29)
Cleveland is welcoming comedic actress Wendi McLendon-Covey to the fold: EW has confirmed that the Bridesmaids star will guest star in an upcoming episode of TV Land’s breakout comedy Hot in Cleveland, which stars Betty White as the cantankerous caretaker of a house in Cleveland where LA ladies Wendy Malick, Jane Leeves, and Valerie Bertinelli reside.
McLendon-Covey will shoot a spot as a nurse in an episode — set to air in January — that finds Melanie (Bertinelli) dating a kicker from the Cleveland Browns. The actress was memorable this past summer in Bridesmaids as Rita, the cynical bridesmaid cousin to Maya Rudolph’s Lillian.
The third season of Hot in Cleveland premieres on TV Land Nov. 30 at 10 p.m. Several other guest stars — including Sandra Bernhard and Kathie Lee Gifford — have already been announced for the upcoming season.

Some new folks are headed to Cleveland: Comedienne Sandra Bernhard and talk-show maven Kathie Lee Gifford have recently signed on to guest star in the upcoming third season of TV Land’s original comedy Hot in Cleveland, EW can exclusively confirm, and we’ve got some details about their roles.
Both women will actually be appearing in roles with which they’re rather familiar. Bernhard is set to play the love interest of Melanie’s (Valerie Bertinelli) lesbian sister, which hearkens to the role she played on Roseanne years ago. Her episode has yet to be scheduled. READ FULL STORY »
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)
TV Land’s Facebook page to discover some of the channel’s viewers are downright peeved. Their demands? More classic programming and fewer new shows. “Bring back the classics! Archie Bunker rules!” declares one viewer. “With all these comments, can’t you guys take the hint! You need to revamp the channel,” censures another. One says: “I’d rather watch the Cavs’ losing streak than Hot in Cleveland.”It doesn’t take much sleuthing on
TV Land’s first original scripted sitcom, Hot in Cleveland (which has just been renewed for a third season), nabbed SAG recognition in January with a nomination for the cast and a win for Betty White, along with the highest ratings in the network’s 15-year history. Capitalizing on their new hit, TV Land debuted their second original comedy, Retired at 35, earlier this year.
But many of TV Land’s Facebook fans are calling for a programming re-haul, and their show requests run the gamut: READ FULL STORY »

TV, I wish I knew how to quit you.

SAG Awards 2011: Backstage with Julianna Margulies, 'Modern Family,' Melissa Leo of 'The Fighter,' and many more
SAG Award winners accept their statuettes, give their speeches, and head off stage? They go backstage for a mini-media tour, of course, where they talk to the press and eventually make their way back to the main press room to take questions from all sorts of reporters, including yours truly from EW. It wasn’t until nearly an hour after the show started that the first winner made her way to the press room (thanks to The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies!), but after that, the winners came through in a near-constant parade, glowing all the way over the accolades they’d just gotten from their fellow actors. Here, enjoy a minute-by-minute, fly-on-the-wall account of the winners’ tours backstage from the Screen Actors Guild Awards press room.What happens after the
5:56 p.m. PT: The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies — who took home a trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series — appears as the first winner to come backstage, looking composed and beautiful as always. (Would you honestly expect anything less?) Margulies talks about several topics, but most interestingly, how the most nerve-wracking part of the night is always the red carpet. She also tells the press about her first movie role, way back in 1994: She played, in her words, “a hooker with a heart of gold” opposite Steven Seagal in Out for Justice.
double-SAG nominated comedy Hot in Cleveland launches this evening at 10 p.m. New episodes of the show — which stars Betty White, alongside three shipwrecked-in-Cleveland L.A.-expats in Jane Leeves, Valerie Bertinelli, and Wendie Malick — haven’t been seen since the first 10 half hours wrapped in the shocking August season finale, where viewers were left watching Elka (White) be hauled away to jail after a stash of valuable jewels and goods were discovered in her storm shelter. (Damn that mob-employed husband!)Even if it’s not your birthday, you’re getting a present tonight: Season 2 of TV Land’s adorable, retro, and
