The ratings for this staple of TV Land have been falling for years. They’re a far cry from the first season’s 3.12 million average. Will they start to recover this year? Could this be the final season for Hot in Cleveland? Cancelled or renewed for season seven? Stay tuned.
Hot in Cleveland continues to follow the lives of three middle-age ladies from Los Angeles — writer Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli), beautician Joy Scoggs (Jane Leeves), and actress Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick). When their flight to Paris makes an emergency landing in Cleveland, Ohio, they discover a community that’s less shallow and youth-obsessed. They move there and lease a home with a sassy caretaker, Elka Ostrovsky (Betty White).
