'Hot in Cleveland' Actresses Talk Small Towns and Self-Image on 'The View' (VIDEO)

Barbara Walters, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, and Valerie Bertinelli of 'Hot In Cleveland' on 'The View'Can moving to a smaller town help improve your self-image? It sounds like a topic for an NPR talk show, but it was part of the discussion Wednesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) with the non-Betty White cast of 'Hot In Cleveland': Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, and Valerie Bertinelli. For the uninitiated, 'Cleveland' is about three women who move to Cleveland to avoid the shallowness and emphasis on youth in Los Angeles.

"When I go home to my little village, I feel very glamorous," said Leeves. "And then sometimes I'll walk out in Los Angeles thinking, 'I'm looking good today.' Then you're out five minutes and you see all these gorgeous 20-year-olds."

The Chicago CodeHappy New Year! 2010 was a crazy year for TV, but there's plenty to get excited for in 2011 -- I've got the super-fast rundown of some of the best new and returning shows, like 'The Chicago Code,' 'The Killing' and 'Episodes.' (If you haven't set your DVRs yet, now's the time.)

I also catch up with the cast of 'Hot In Cleveland.' They've got an amazing batch of guest stars for season 2 -- Mary Tyler Moore, anyone? -- but who are Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves hoping will come play?

Then I hit the set of 'Southland' to answer some fan questions. The most asked: Will Cooper get a love interest this season? Michael Cudlitz and Ben McKenzie sound off on who Cooper's dream lover is.

'Hot In Cleveland' Ladies Talk Season 2, Guest Stars & Reviving the Classic Sitcom (VIDEO)

Hot in ClevelandAn original show on TV Land? And now it's boasting SAG Awards nominations? 'Hot In Cleveland' is the little engine that could in the TV landscape, thanks in large part to an unparalleled year for star Betty White.

But don't discount the draw of White's three fabulously funny costars, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves -- as Malick points out, "the combined number of years we've been doing comedy is like 165." I didn't double-check her math or anything, but with 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' 'The Golden Girls,' 'One Day At a Time,' 'Just Shoot Me,' 'Frasier' and more on their collective resumes, you really can't argue with that.

I visited the L.A. set of 'Hot In Cleveland,' where they tape in front of a live studio audience, to chat with the ladies about reviving the classic sitcom, having a career in Hollywood well after your 40s, what's ahead for Season 2 (premieres Wed., Jan. 19, 10PM ET), big guest stars from their TV pasts and more.

'Hot in Cleveland': Do Jane and Betty White Find Love? (VIDEO)

'Hot in Cleveland': Do Jane and Betty White Find Love?And we're back with our favorite quartet of slightly over-the-hill women on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). On the latest episode, Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) tries to reconnect with her ex-husband; only to learn that he's still with the same bimbo that he dumped her for. Sad!

[Spoiler alert.]

In order to recover, Melanie goes out for drinks with her female pals at a local bar. In a moment of frustration, Melanie yanks off her wedding ring; which then flies off to land in the crowd of people. The ring is instantly recovered by a sexy male cop -- who returns it, and then smiles at Melanie charmingly. Ooh! Could this be a potential love connection?

Inspired by this, the other ladies throw their rings into the random bar crowd as well. Last to go is Joy (Jane Leeves). But when she throws her ring away, it is caught by none other than ... Betty White. Does this mean that Jane and Betty now have a "love connection"? Hey, you could do worse than the estimable Ms. White.

Jane Leeves Gets a Little Catty About Catherine Zeta-Jones (VIDEO)

Jane Leeves Gets a Little Catty About Catherine Zeta-Jones'Hot in Cleveland' star Jane Leeves was the guest on 'The Kilborn File' (weeknights, 7PM ET on Fox). While she was on the show, Leeves took the opportunity to unleash a little cattiness against Catherine Zeta-Jones. Ooh! We like it! A little British actress vs. British actress fight!

Craig Kilborn told Leeves that he had once read that she was the highest-paid English actress. " ... Well, that's what they're saying," Jane replied. "But that would be a bit sad wouldn't it, really? I'm sure, like, Catherine Zeta-Jones has outdone me." Then, Leeves paused for half a second. " ... Although she's going to have to probably wait a few years for that money."

"Was that a reference to divorcing someone?" Kilborn asked.

"No, no, no, no, no, no, no," Jane said.

This was, in fact, a fairly subtle burn, which referred to the fact that Zeta-Jones is currently married to Michael Douglas. And Douglas' divorce from his previous wife was one of the most expensive in Hollywood history -- costing him an estimated $45 million, not including the two houses that he had to give to his ex-wife.

Old Lady Sex on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

Old Lady Sex on 'Hot in Cleveland'The issue of old-person-sex was always going to come up on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). Betty White is the star of the show, and her co-stars are slightly older women as well. (Actually, by real world standards, the other actresses are young and ridiculously good looking, but hey -- this is TV. And so, in television terms, they are considered to be "older.")

[Spoiler alert.]

On the latest episode of the show, Betty hands out some sex advice to her female friends. Betty's talk includes a discussion of "boobs" and "back fat." The co-stars listen intently to Betty. And they seem alternately intrigued, grossed out ... and turned on.

On the second episode, Joy realizes that while there are advantages to dating someone younger than her, skewing in that direction has its own issues.

[Spoiler alert.]


Joy goes on a date with a guy 15 years her junior, and everything seems to be going really well. That is, until he says, "You know I was actually born in Britain. My birth mom gave me up for adoption to this American couple."

Hmmm, that sounds familiar... Is she dating her son?!

You know what? This show looks pretty good. From this clip, it looks like Betty White is as funny as ever, and Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, and Jane Leeves are likable actresses too. Plus the writing doesn't seem horrible like a lot of sitcoms. I don't know what TV Land would consider a "hit," but this looks like fun. It debuts in June.

Review: Desperate Housewives - The Glamorous Life

(S06E14) "Stink, stank, stunk." - Lynette to Dr. Graham

Before going on a short hiatus, Desperate Housewives treated us with a so-so episode. This week's episode introduced an almost unrecognizable Julie Benz as stripper Robin (see above), whom Susan takes under her wing; offered us a funnily stinky performance from Frasier's Jane Leeves, which helped Tom and Lynette grow as a couple; put Angie and the Solises at odds as Danny and Ana were ready to take their relationship to the next step; and had the Bree-Orson storyline take a turn that I'm not enjoying at all.
