TV Land renews ‘Hot in Cleveland’

Cabler orders 22 episodes for third season

The ladies of “Hot in Cleveland” will be sunning themselves on TV Land for another season.

The cabler has given its first original scripted laffer a 22-

episode order for a third season. The pickup comes as “Cleveland” nears the halfway point of its second season, which is airing in two parts — 10 segs in the winter and 12 more episodes that will run in mid-June.

Ensembler — starring Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick — has become a cornerstone of TV Land’s primetime sked. The Viacom-owned cabler is using it as a launch pad for new sitcoms.

“Cleveland” impressed for TV Land out of the box last year and has remained a strong draw so far in season two. Series is averaging 3.2 million viewers and a 2.0 in its target femme 25-54 demographic. White won a SAG award in January for her work on the show, which also nabbed a nom for best comedy ensemble.

Series hails from Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner’s Hazy Mills Prods. Creator Suzanne Martin exec produces with Hayes, Milliner and Lynda Obst.
