Huey Lewis' 'Heart of Rock & Roll' Can't Take Victoria's Costume on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

Huey Lewis, 'Hot in Cleveland''Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) added a framing sequence to this episode, that actually worked pretty well. Sure, it was just a fun nod to 'Sex and the City,' but framing it with an article Melanie was writing created a nice cohesiveness to the tale.

'Sex and the City' permeated this story of hooking up in Ohio. While Melanie sought to see if she could have sex with no strings attached, Victoria is surprised by Johnny (Huey Lewis). Her entire relationship with him has been no strings attached, but after he suffers a heart attack on the front porch, he changes.

That front porch is turning into a dangerous place, between Joy shooting her son there and Rick seducing the women there, they should consider maybe never using the front door again.

Elka managed a successful booty call, but realized that she wanted more with him, leading to a proposal at the end of the episode. Maybe sex with no strings attached works for some, but not for everyone.

Even Victoria and Johnny, who ultimately decided not to take their relationship to the next level, admitted to a lot of strings between them that they were more than happy to leave intact. We're glad of it, too, because Huey Lewis is a fun recurring character.

On a show that seems filled with guest stars, it can be hard to stand out, but Lewis' character is one of the more memorable ones. Kudos for the clever little nod to Huey Lewis and the News' hit 'The Heart of Rock & Roll.'
