    She certainly isn't as heavy as the before shots but neither is she at the same weight as when she did the Bikini ads last year. But, still very cute.

    Just wish I had an HD source. I got the pilot in HD on Nick but all the new ones are on TVLAND for now.

    Fell in love with Valerie Bertinelli when she was on One Day at a Time, and have never stopped. Even during her deliberately robotic performance in Touched by an Angel.

    Good to have you back on TV, Valerie! :up:

    Weird, it aired in a 34 minute timeslot overnight on IIRC nick at nite.. It started about 1 minute in the timeslot, but cut off the very end..

    So I don't know if they just crammed more commercials in it, or did an 'expanded' version. The rest of the airings are ~30 minutes IIRC.

    (haven't watched it yet, I simply wanted to check if it got the whole thing)

    I recorded a re-airing of the pilot on TVLand this past Sat morning, and mine also ran out before it ended. Recorded another re-airing just to see the last few minutes. SP now padded by 5".

    Though I think my recording really only missed 10 seconds or so..

    and I didn't time it, but I really do think they simply padded it out with ~4 more minutes of commercials.

    I was just watching the pilot...thinking that, while it was cute, it was nothing I'd rush to see again. It seemed like it was trying too hard. Then Betty White appeared and I actually laughed out loud. SP set just for her. :)

    Betty White is a national treasure. She has more comedic talent in her little finger than most of today's so-called comedians. Long may she live.

    The writing reminds me of Cheers and Frasier. A keeper for me. ;)

    Man, I love Betty White. And I also love Jane Leeves-the other two not so much.

    Is it just me or is Jane Leeves a little on the scary thin side? I mean, don't get me wrong, she's still drooltastic. But she seems a little more blunt edges than her Frasier years.

    OMG. THAT"S who that is.
    /Slaps self on forehead.
    Thanks Angie!

    (I like the show)
    Kind-hearted, does not think too highly of itrself.
    Even larger, Valerie Bertinelli is highly appealing.
    And of course Betty White is....Betty White.

    I like this show. The episode where they all arranged dates for each other was fresh in the reasons the dates were unacceptable.

    What a great match Carl Reiner is for Betty White.

    The critics pooh-poohed it, but the viewership won out. Who cares about the critics if lots of people are watching the TVLand commercials, right?

    (Shhh. I know we have TiVos)

    Seriously. That was a chemistry match made in heaven. Wish we could see more of them together.

    My girlfriend and I are loving this show. We actually watched each episode twice, we enjoyed them that much. (we were putting laundry away during the first airing.)

    The coming attractions for this weeks look GREAT!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Betty White.

    OK - after seeing the first couple of episodes I wasn't too sure if it was season pass worthy. I was on the fence, but SO glad I ended up doing the SP. Had I chose not to, I would've missed the "Good Sex Left Behind" episode last week. HILARIOUS! There were so many good one-liners in there that I LOL'd through a good 90% of the episode. :D

    I am enjoying this show far more than I expected to.

    In the last episode, the opening scene with Betty White with the red hair made me laugh out loud several times. I think Betty White saying bad words (calling the other lady "fat ass") is just funny. :eek:

    She can say almost anything and be funny. And it always seems like Valerie Bertinelli is laughing at Betty White, and not her character laughing at Betty's character. I think Valerie just finds Betty hilarious, and she is.

    Also, the scene from last week or the week before with Wendie Malick and Huey Lewis trying to have "20s sex" instead of "50s sex" was also hilarious. How many other TV shows even try to show 50somethings in a sex scene? Wendie Malick is very good at the physical comedy imho.

    It is very old school, and a bit corny, but Betty White is really funny in it. I am pleasantly surprised by the show myself.

    That was a GREAT scene.

    I find myself not caring for Valarie Bertanelli in this. I'm not sure why-maybe it seems she's trying to hard to keep up with the terrifically funny other cast members.

    Not going to stop me from watching, though. It's still very funny!
