Betty White lovers should be thrilled! TV Land has picked up a second season of her new hit series Hot in Cleveland. The show will go into production on 20 new episodes in October 2010 and is scheduled to start airing those episodes in January 2011. The show also stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, and Wendie Malick, who will all return as series regulars.

Hot in Cleveland is about three fabulous best friends from LA – novelist Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli), eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs (Jane Leeves) and former soap star Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick). Their lives change forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing. When the friends discover that they are hot in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over, they rent a house that happens to come with a very feisty caretaker (Betty White).

The decision to pick up a second season was an easy one. The June 16th series premiere was the highest-rated and most-watched show in all of cable that day among Adults 18-49, Adults 25-54, Women 18-49, Women 25-54 and Total Viewers according to The Nielsen Company. To date, the series is averaging a 2.1 rating among Adults 25-54, a 2.7 among Women 25-54, a 1.7 among Adults 18-49 and a 2.1 among Women 18-49. The show is delivering 4.7 million total viewers.

Due to its success in the United States, Endemol has acquired Hot in Cleveland for global distribution, which premiered in Canada on July 5the and quickly became the #1 ranked new import comedy of the year. The premiere telecast brought in 1.82 million total viewers, which is the U.S. delivery equivalent of 11.8 million viewers.

Hot in Cleveland currently airs on Wednesdays at 10pm EST/PST only on TV Land.
