Elka Talks With Kathie Lee Gifford About Man Troubles on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Elka's Choice'Man, it's good to have 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). What only became a breakout hit because of the hot streak Betty White was on at the time has launched an entire line of new series for TV Land, but the original continues to bring the best laughs.

Picking up on threads from the season finale, Elka struggled to decide which man to choose -- including her not-so-dead husband (Don Rickles) -- while Joy and Victoria dealt with the aftermath of their drunken marriage.

The two of them as a couple, even though they're both straight, proved to be funnier than when other shows have done it in the past. Particularly when Victoria tried to use it to score her a job on the new 'The View' rip-off 'The Chatter,' starring Kathie Lee Gifford.

It doesn't look like it worked, but her "coming out" on national television at such a late age sparked a renewed interest in her, and by marriage Joy, that it looks like we're going to explore for at least a few more episodes. Anything to keep the couple bickering like we saw this week and we're on board.

Thankfully, Elka ultimately decided to reject her husband because Rickles simply wasn't working as a believable actor in this role. He was just Rickles being dropped into a scene. Gifford, however, was hilarious as 'The Chatter' host, guzzling wine and doing what she does best.
