Mary Tyler Moore fans, here’s a reason to get excited: Lou Grant and Sue Ann Nivens are reuniting!
EW has exclusively learned that Mary Tyler Moore co-stars Betty White and Ed Asner will appear in an episode of TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland that’s slated to air in the sitcom’s batch of new episodes next summer. The half-hour will shoot in February. Cleveland‘s third season recently premiered, on Nov. 30. READ FULL STORY
Since TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland premiered its third season last Wednesday, that means that — yes! — we’re treated to a new episode every week now. And in celebration of tomorrow’s show, EW has an exclusive clip from the half hour, which is titled “Beards.” We bet you can figure out what it’s all about from that title, considering that much of the recent storyline surrounding Victoria (Wendie Malick) and Joy (Jane Leeves) has concerned their faux-lesbian marriage that happened at the end of last season. However, this time it’s Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) who’s looking for a faux girlfriend while on a gay cruise with her pals and Elka (Betty White). Who does she look to? It’s pretty funny, but you’ll have to watch the clip below to find out more:
Over your turkey hangover yet? No? Good. You may have thought the holiday marathons would end with today’s televised deluge, but you would be wrong. 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…
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
