Another great show is coming to an end. TV will definitely have fewer laughs next spring, when Hot in Cleveland, TV Land’s first original scripted sitcom end in 2015, after six seasons and more than 100 episodes. Hot in Cleveland’s sixth season just started airing, with less than a million viewers.
Bertinelli shared several quotes about endings, including this one by Shel Silverstein: “There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part. So just give me a happy middle and a very happy start.”
Leeves tweeted “I’m so glad we had this time together. BIG thank you to our amazing fans! I hope you love the final season as much as we’ve loved making it. It’s been such a gift.”
Malick posted: “OK, first of all, you #HotinCleveland fans are totally awesome…secondly, next April, we’re going out in a blaze of glory!”
Hot in Cleveland is truly one of the most unique shows out there. It assembled these 3 brilliant actresses, all with various sitcom experiences, and teamed them with her royal TV majesty – Betty White.
White was originally supposed to just have a one-off appearance in the pilot, but because she is as loving as she is and a comedy genius, she stuck around for more than 100 episodes. The 92-year-old Golden Girls and Mary Tyler Moore Show veteran is definitely the heart of the show.
Larry W. Jones, President of TV Land issued a statement on the popular show’s ending: “It’s been an honor to work with Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and the incomparable Betty White as well as our executive producers Suzanne Martin, Todd Milliner, Sean Hayes and the rest of our exceptional writers, production team and crew.”
Hot in Cleveland kicked off with 4.8 million viewers.
