The Morning After: Still Hot for Cleveland?

Ignoring the mandate of Universal Approbation for Betty White Projects in the year 2010, I gave Hot in Cleveland a mostly negative review last week, finding the show stale and clichéd despite a strong performance by White and not-terrible ones by her sitcom-alumnae costars. America responded by tuning in five million strong to the debut, making it by far TV Land’s biggest new show ever (and that’s a strong rating for any summer cable show, period). So I should probably silence myself before the authorities come for me.

This is clearly not the show for me, but I ask of you, America: did you return for a second helping of Cleveland, and did you like it as well as the first time around?
