Last season for "Hot in Cleveland" (2015)

Quote:
After six seasons, TV Land's signature original comedy series Hot in Cleveland is calling it quits. "After five incredible seasons of Hot in Cleveland, the sixth season, currently in production, will be its last," according to TV Land.
It's had a good run. I remember when it first started, thinking "TV Land?". And also thinking "Daphne!". Set the bar high for old people shows, er I mean the over-49 demo. And credit to TV Land, they've tried a bunch of them, and a few have landed.

Ratings are still decent, so I'm guessing either (1) the well is running dry on creativity & story lines, and they're actually gonna call it quits while they're ahead, or (2) as contracts renew, the costs continues to rise, and TV Land wants to call a Numbers.

I'll miss 'em...

TV Land confirmed on Monday the Hot in Cleveland‘s current 24-episode sixth season will be the sitcom’s last.
The sixth season just started, so assuming they make them all, and show them on the same cycle as before, the last episodes will air next September or so.

I love this show, but I have wondered every year how long you could continue to do a show starring a 92-year old actress.

Please do not "Fixed Your Post" on my posts. I find that rude and annoying. Thank you for your consideration.

Well, actually you could only do one year....the next season she'd be a 93-year-old actress. The season after that, she'd be a 94-year-old......

But, seriously, they ARE pushing their luck. I've enjoyed watching it with my wife. She actually enjoys it quite a bit, and it is geared more toward female viewers. But Betty White is just awesome...with even just a facial expression

I wonder if Betty's health is part of the equation. I've noticed that she is sitting a lot more this season in her scenes.

Very slight correction... she'll be turning 93 years old during this (sixth) season.

I LOVED this show first season, and I drifted away. I look forward to catching up someday.

I don't want Betty to slowdown. I really don't. But considering my Grandma is 93 and can't walk for more than a few steps, I shouldn't be surprised.

I stopped watching Hot in Cleveland back during season 4. I had "cut the cord" back then and didn't get TV Land, but I did buy season 4 on iTunes. Since re-upping our cable subscription, I did start recording Hot in Cleveland again and have most of season 5 and I'm starting to get season 6 now.

I do want to watch it at some point, and since Amazon Prime has seasons 4 and 5 available for streaming and I can watch that on my TiVo, I'll probably start catching up soon.

I just now realized this show was ending. I was looking ahead to future eps and saw "series finale" instead of "season finale."

I'm sad. I loved this show.

I've really enjoyed it (always loved Daphne), but it's time to end it. Like Nurse Jackie and Mad Men, as much as I love certain shows, they can simply run too long. The final season often brings a sharpness, a certain focus, that makes for an enjoyable end.

Looks like we have tonight and next week, then a one hour finale in two weeks.

The thing I'm glad for is that they ended it while Betty White was still alive. I couldn't fathom watching it and seeing how they dealt with her death (I suppose they could have done without her dying, but I have a feeling they would have).

Her death is going to hit me hard because she reminds me of my grandma who passed about, wow, 10 years ago.

There's a part of me that's relieved that they're ending the show before Betty White dies. I'd hate for them to have to write her character out of the show.

Heh heh... simul-posted the same idea.

Wife and I were lucky enough to get tickets to the last taping on April 1st. It wasn't the series finale - which was taped the week before. The cast did not want it to end - at least half the audience were friends,family, and other VIPs.
Betty White tends to get help moving from place to place, but her mind is still sharp. She would crack jokes between takes. During one scene, after a mistake the director said 'ok lets go back to the start' Betty added 'I want to go back to the pilot'.
