TV show description:      
Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli) is a novelist and mother of college-age kids who’s trying to get over her recent divorce. Joy Scroggs (Jane Leeves) is a Beverly Hills beautician and is known as the “Eyebrow Queen of Hollywood,” helping stars like Oprah Winfrey and Ryan Seacrest. Her life starts to fall apart when she realizes she’s losing her clients to younger talents. Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) is an aging actress whose soap opera has recently been cancelled and is now being asked to audition for roles like Megan Fox’s grandmother.

The three middle-age best friends are on their way to a dream vacation in Paris. Melanie hopes to find love there and check another item off their “bucket list.” The plane has to make an emergency landing in Cleveland and the three find there’s a lot to like there — men find them attractive, the cost of living is much lower, and it’s not centered around being young and skinny like Los Angeles.

They ultimately decide to stay and make a new life there. They rent a house that happens to come with a very feisty and acerbic caretaker named Elka Ostrovsky (Betty White).

    They won’t change their minds, it’s numbers, not minds, numbers. So the show is on at 9:00, buy a DVR and record it

    Why do they always cancel the shows that give us such wonderful laughter and talent – I am so VERY tired of EXTREMELY boring reality tv and endless shows of violence & serial killers – can’t we please have shows like this that could actually make us all feel human, happy, joyous, and not afraid of a crime about to happen around every corner or worse be forced to watch unintelligent stupid ridiculous talentless reality crap! These are stars, real writers, excellent producers….please, please, don’t go away and please, please bring us more shows we can really enjoy!!!!

      Sue, I totally agree with you. There’s about 3 shows left now that I like. When they take them off, the cable will be going with them. Since they only care about what the Neilsen box holders watch (reality crap) they won’t be getting our money anymore. Why pay for lame shows?

    I wish it was going for just one more season. I’d like to see seven seasons. Maybe if they’d moved the stories along a little faster and indulged in some of the story arcs a little more seriously we’d still get a few more seasons. However, what the show lacked was what I loved about it. It felt like a situation comedy from the early days of TV. A stage play for television that was more aware of the fact that it was on TV. Simple stories. Low hanging fruit. But delivered with a skill that only the actresses so deftly cast could deliver. I tuned in every week for the performers and their performances more than the content.

    The show should definitely continue! It is fabulous! I understand that Betty W has some health issues which makes me feel incredibly sad…I know that she would want the show to continue!
