Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
The idea seems to have merit. After all, Betty White seems to be appearing on just about every TV channel. So why not give her another series?
And that's exactly what's happened on TV Land. The cable network has signed her for one of the lead roles in "Hot in Cleveland," its first original prime time sitcom.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says that was an excellent decision. So was selecting Valerie Bertineli, Jane Leaves and Wendy Malick to appear with White. The problem now, he asks, is what to do with them?
Sokolsky points to some early episodes and sees too many resemblances to several series.
That, he adds, gives the ladies a heavy load to carry. But if they do, they could supply enough potential to keep things going for a while.
