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.
