'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.

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on 'Today'Before Kathie Lee Gifford found success on the daytime talk circuit, she was an actress who had her share of TV failures. Tuesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), she recalled a show that critics savaged - 'Hee Haw Honeys' - and spoke about her upcoming guest spot on 'Hot In Cleveland,' a show that's been much more well-received.

Gifford said TV Guide named 'Honeys' as "one of the worst ten shows ever on television." But at least she had a good time. "They hired three girls to be like a young Charlie's Angels, except we weren't," she said. "The pilot didn't sell, but they kept me, and then they surrounded me with 'Hee Haw' people. I loved it. I met all the country music people doing that show."

'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Elka's Big Day''Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) sure loves cliffhanger finales. Last season, we saw a tornado that revealed the secret stash of ill-gotten loot from Elka's dead husband Bobby. That little reveal landed Elka in some serious legal trouble at the beginning of this season.

But all that behind her, she found love and was poised to get married for this season's finale, only to have it interrupted by countless men who didn't want her to marry Frank, but them instead.

Even Max came back from Florida, which we expected was the dramatic cliffhanger to tease us until the show returns at the end of November. But they weren't done yet.
