Doris Roberts Gets Punched by Betty White on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 21st 2011 6:45AM
'Hot in Cleveland'It was an emotional roller coaster when Elka (Betty White) ran into her former best friend Lydia, played by Doris Roberts, on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land).

Their friendship had ended when Elka caught Lydia in a tent with her husband. So when she saw her old friend, she did what anyone would do. She knocked her out with a hard right hook.

Lydia tried to explain that it was a misunderstanding, and that Elka's husband was only warming her because of frostbite. It was pretty convincing when she showed her three-toed foot, but it turned out to still be a fantasy.

Still, it wasn't all bad. When Lydia's son showed up, Elka saw so much of her deceased husband in him. So much that despite her anger at Lydia, she couldn't bring herself to tell the truth to the son her husband had with her best friend. She simply enjoyed the chance to look into her husband's eyes again.

Frankie Fires Off an Angry Drunk Letter to the Principal About Brick's Teacher on 'The Middle' (VIDEO)

'The Middle' - 'The Math Class'It's important to be involved in your children's education. But, as we learned on 'The Middle' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC), it's probably best not to involve alcohol in your involvement. Doris Roberts returned as Brick's teacher, and she continued to get under Frankie's skin at every turn.

Frankie tried to reconnect to Brick's situation at school when he started getting Ds on his math tests. But after meetings with his teacher weren't going well, Frankie decided to take a more direct approach. An approach inspired by beer.

She fired off a letter to the school principal. In it, she implied that Brick's teacher was a drunk, and possibly a former Nazi. "What do we really know about her?" she wrote.

'Everybody Loves Raymond' Stars Reunite on 'The Middle' (VIDEO)

'Everybody Loves Raymond' Stars Reunite on 'The Middle'Back when Patricia Heaton and Doris Roberts appeared on 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' the pair's characters had a pretty antagonistic relationship. That pattern continued tonight when Doris guest-starred on the season premiere of 'The Middle' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC). Roberts plays Ms. Rinsky, the new school teacher who has Brick Heck (Atticus Shaffer) in her class.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Brick is the youngest and most precocious child in the Heck family. And so when his parents Frankie and Mike (played by Heaton and Neil Flynn) show up to talk to Ms. Rinsky, they're understandably hopeful that they can get Brick some "special attention." Ms. Rinsky isn't in the mood to humor them, though, and takes specific aim at Frankie. "Every parent thinks their child is 'special',"she tells Frankie. "[But] they can't all be." Okay, that's actually a good point.

Is Remington Steele coming to TV Land?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 23rd 2007 5:16PM

Remington Steele castHmmm...a mystery over at TV Land.com.

In the video section, there is a listing for "Remington Steel clips." Now, besides the fact that they didn't spell Remington Steele correctly, I don't remember the show being on TV Land (or Nick at Nite for that matter). The show is not even listed on their show list. So I clicked on the link to see what clips of the show the site had and I found out that there are also clips for Lost in Space and The Time Tunnel! Is this a promotion for the DVDs you can buy (there are links to buy them) and nothing more, or is it a little preview of shows TV Land has added to the lineup.

But this would be a good show for the network to pick up (I'm talking about Remington Steele, not Lost in Space or The Time Tunnel). I remember a cable network (I think it was A&E) ran the show every afternoon a few years back, and I really got into the show again.
