Hot in Cleveland Is the New Golden Girls
I just realized it!
TV Land's new hit sitcom is basically a revamp of Golden Girls, but with slightly different age brackets.
Watch an episode and you'll soon enough realize that tart-tongued Wendy Malick is basically the modern-day Bea Arthur.
Sweet-faced Valerie Bertinelli is the new Betty White.
Been-around Jane Leeves is the nouveau Rue McClanahan.
And witheringly sarcastic Golden Girl Betty White has turned into Estelle Getty.
And I love it! The show is really fun -- as long as it's not opposite reruns of the real Golden Girls.
