Hot in Cleveland

Hot in Cleveland is a hugely popular TV sitcom in America and is in its 5th season.

People who travel from afar to visit America, usually have New York City, New York on their travel itinerary, or maybe even Miami, Florida.  Cleveland, Ohio isn’t usually one of the Top 10 List of places to see in the USA.  Ever been to Cleveland, Ohio?  If not, next best thing is digging up a few fun facts and trivia like these:

  • In 1879, it became the world’s first city to be lighted electrically.
  • In 1914, America’s first traffic light blinked in this city.
  • It’s the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?  ( Huh? I know! Right? )
  • Olympic gold medal winner, Jesse Owens, grew up in Cleveland.

Here’s a fact that may or may not be so interesting. For some odd reason, it was decided to create a sitcom entitled “Hot in Cleveland” Why? That was my question.  “Miami Vice”?  I get that!  But Cleveland?!!

To my surprise the show is now in the 5th season.

Betty White is this TV show’s highlight.

Very few American actresses, age 50+, are actually offered roles in movies or television on a regular basis. Ms. White is one of those rare actresses with staying power.

She’s ninety plus years old and still in the business.

That is no easy achievement in the American entertainment industry.

What else can I say?  Um … it’s an award-winning show.
