They bought the neighborhood bar in the Kitchen Nightmares episode. Melanie lost her job at the radio station and Joy thought it would help her adopt because being a detective is too dangerous. I think Victoria might have bought in as well.

I recently caught an episode of this show on Demand and was surprised at some of the offensive content. I thought it was a silly sitcom with washed up TV stars but one of the plotlines was that Betty White had a date with the Pope. What's up with that? Do they think that is funny? I understand that they like to ridicule religion and religious people in Hollywood but even on this stupid sitcom.

 

That's the last time I watch it.

Last night was so sweet! I know this isn't exactly breakthrough television, but I really will be sad to not have my Wednesday night comfort food anymore.

 

(And I'm even more sad when I think I won't get a regular Betty White fix anymore. I mean she's immortal and all, I don't mean she's going away, but getting to see her do her thing every week was so great.)

So what did everyone think of the series finale?

 

I'm not going to lie, I got a little misty-eyed when they named the baby Betty.

 

I'll miss these gals!

I kind of thought they would somehow wrap things up this way.  I was glad to see Victoria end up with Johnny.  I forgot all about him.

I'm ambivalent about the final episode.  I'm pleased that they gave everyone an end story and that they all wound up happy.  Bob Newhart -- and I'm a fan -- was wasted, they could have come up with a better story for him and he still could have ended up with Elka.  Georgia Engel wasn't needed here at all and they wasted a lot time with her.  I think she was a good addition to the show as a friend of Elka's but was a distraction in Las Vegas.  Victoria winding up with Johnny -- perfect actually -- their chemistry was excellent.  I smiled when they revealed the baby's name, a lovely tribute to Betty White.  When they showed Melanie's seat mate on the plane you knew they would wind up together but that looked like a good fit so it didn't bother me.  Bob and Joy never made sense as a couple.    Final comment -- I liked the Huey Lewis look-a-like wedding officiant.

Also been a fan of Victoria and Johnny, as well as Huey Lewis.  Glad to see them end up together as well.  Wasn't the best show on TV but it sure was fun. Always tuned in to see who would pop up as a guest star.  Valerie and Jane were live tweeting last night and mentioned that Valeries husband was an extra sitting behind her on the plane.  Loved the use of Queens "You're my Best Friend".  Call back to the final of Will and Grace, nice work Sean Hayes.

I'm pretty sure that was Huey Lewis; you only saw the back of Johnny's head during the ceremony, and they did some canny editing afterward so you never saw the two men at the same time. (Or do you mean that they had a Johnny Thunder lookalike along with the Elvis impersonator?)

 

I'm a little disappointed that everyone ended up paired off, but it fits in with the overall arc of the show.

 

The five-year time jump at the end was weird when I realize Elka would be 98! Not that she wouldn't still be alive and kicking, of course.

I thought it was pretty much a perfect finale for this show: a good mix of very silly and sweet. I'm glad they worked in several scenes where the characters were supposed to cry, because I'm sure they were real tears.

I loved the last bit saying that the girls still got together every Wednesday night. That's how I want to remember them.

I loved the entire finale. Teared up myself at the end. Didn't care about Elka being really old in flash forward. Loved it!

I loved the last episode, except that it was the last episode. So glad to see Victoria back with Johnny Revere! His season one episode is locked on my DVR - it was the clincher of this season as a keeper for me - so funny!

I loved Bob, but the baby storyline wasn't the greatest to me. Loved that they named the baby Betty.

I'm glad they all ended up happy, and the last scene on the porch swing about meeting every Wednesday night got me. I want to be there with them!

It certainly wasn't the greatest show on tv, but it consistently made me laugh. I'll miss it.

After watching the episode that had the  Mary Tyler Moore reunion I went and started watching MTM. It's great. I can't believe it's from before I was born.. and I was born in the 70s! Cloris Leachman in her prime shocked me to pieces. I haven't seen Betty yet, I'm only on episode 1.

This is too funny. I just watched Crowded, Season 1 episode 7. Betty White guests stars. alongside Jane Leeves, as a mother-and-daughter who go to therapy. It's hilarious because they very much continute their archetypes they played in Hot in Cleveland. Jane even yells out that her mother  often calls her a Hooker from Cleveland. 

It was really exciting to see this contentious duo together on screen again.

I just started watching the final season of HiC.  I had watched all the other seasons when they ran, and enjoyed it, but kept missing it this season, and my DVR (satellite) kept cutting out in bad weather.  Anyway, I found it on Hulu and intend to watch the season.  I may have seen a handful of the episodes.

I loved the main characters, and even when the plots got ridiculous, it was still a fun half-hour for me.
