I am so happy TV Land has chosen to renew its hit show, Hot in Cleveland, for a third season. They certainly deserved it, as not only did the show garner a nomination for Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® this past January, Betty White won the  award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. Each week, I find myself totally LOLing as I tune into the 1/2 hour show each Wednesday at 10:00 pm EST. How about you? What do you think about this announcement?

Los Angeles, CA, February 28, 2011– TV Land announced today that its smash hit sitcom, Hot in Cleveland, will return for a third season with 22 episodes to begin shooting this summer. The sitcom, which garnered unprecedented ratings not only for the network but across cable, continues to be a huge success with an average of 3.2 million total viewers. The sitcom remains the highest-rated and most-watched series in the history of the network and was recently nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards® including: Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series – Betty White, which Ms. White won.

“The chemistry that this cast has with each other is undeniable so we are excited to bring Hot in Cleveland back for another season,” said Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land. “Our viewers will be thrilled with all that is in store for next season – amazing storylines, smart and hilarious writing and even more beloved guest stars!”

Hot in Cleveland revolves around three fabulous best friends from LA – novelist Melanie Moretti, eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs and former soap star Victoria Chase – who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing. When the friends discover that life is better for them and that they are hot in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over together, they rent a house that happens to come with a very opinionated caretaker.

Filmed in front of a live studio audience, Hot in Cleveland is executive produced by Emmy® Award-winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions and is helmed by Emmy® Award-winning Suzanne Martin (Frasier, Ellen) serving as executive producer, show runner and writer. Lynda Obst also serves as executive producer.
