I have a blog entry I'm working on, but my "Betty White" Google News Alert* brought some most excellent news to my attention, so I'll post it tomorrow.

TV Land PRIME's new original production of Hot in Cleveland starring BETTY WHITE will start airing in June on TV Land!

Frickin' amazing as always.

First she gets a Saturday Night Live hosting gig on May 8th, then a guest-spot on the season finale of The Middle, and now she's in a new television series. Sweet!

So glad Ms. White is showing no signs of slowing down, because everything's better with Betty!

Betty & Dave

I sure wish Chelsea Lately would book Betty as a guest. Now THAT... would be an awesome interview.

UPDATE: In even more Betty news... Betty White will be a guest on Larry King Live tomorrow night on CNN (6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern). I positively loathe Larry King. I think he's about the shittiest "professional" interviewer working in television (yes, that includes Tyra Banks)... but you can bet I'll be tuning in for this one!


* For those curious about "Google News Alerts"... any time you do a search for something at Google News you can scroll to the bottom of the page and sign up for "email alerts" for whatever you just searched for (or anything else, for that matter). Then, at intervals you determine, Google will email you a report of things that show up in their news feed. Easy! And customizable...

I have alerts for people like Betty White, Elizabeth Hurley, and Steve Jobs... and things like ACTA, Macintosh, and Chocolate Pudding. Very handy... and free!

    Best day ever! For Betty fans, that is.

    I’m a fan. Just not a FAN, you know.

  2. Hilly Sue says:

    I’m so happy that you get more face time with your main squeeze. Every Davey-Joe needs a little Betty in his life…wait, a LOT of Betty!

  3. Sybil Law says:

    Betty fucking ROCKS.
    Thanks for the Google News thing!

  4. Dustin says:

    I’ve been in love with Betty White ever since I heard about the letter she sent Rue McClanahan (Blanch) while she was in the hospital. Freaking priceless.

  5. bo says:

    I love that you have a Google alert for news of Betty White.

  6. Avitable says:

    Ok, when I first heard the laughtrack I almost stopped it, but when Betty got on screen, she was pretty damn funny!

  7. sizzle says:

    Betty is the best. I love that she’s still active and showing the youngin’s how it is done!

  8. martymankins says:

    As we talked about on Twitter, she was on Jay Leno last night, too. Which I didn’t watch, but will find it online somewhere so NBC won’t get my tick mark as a live viewer.

  9. Greg says:

    Finally, she’s back on TV where she belongs! I can’t wait until June!!!

  10. Tug says:

    I saw this…AWE.SOME. The world *is* a better place with more Betty. 😉

  11. Casey says:

    Chelsea has had her on and it was as funny as one would hope. It was when she was doing press for The Proposal.
