Hot in Cleveland (2010)

Betty White as "Elka Ostrovsky"

When their plane has trouble while on a flight to Paris, three glamorous LA women find themselves in a completely new and unexpected place. Feeling the need for a girls-only, once-in-a-lifetime trip, Melanie cashes in her airline miles to finance a trip to the city of light for herself and her two best friends, Joy and Victoria, all ``of a certain age'' and feeling less than desirable. They never make it to Paris, though -- when the stricken plane lands in Cleveland, the women suddenly find they're popular with the men there. Realizing that while they may be lukewarm in LA, they're hot in Cleveland, the women decide to relocate. They immediately fall in love with their rental house. It takes a little longer, however, for them to warm up to the house's longtime caretaker (Betty White).

Betty White's Off Their Rockers (2012)

The Betty White revolution continues with this ``Candid Camera''-style hidden-camera show starring the former ``Golden Girl'' and her fearless band of senior citizens, who hit the streets to pull pranks on the younger generation. White, who acts as the on-screen host, is featured in sketches, provides commentary between the pranks and shares her engaging pearls of comedic wisdom. White -- also an executive producer of the program that has been adapted from a popular Belgian series -- says that people have told her for years that she is off her rocker so now she gets to prove it.

Betty White as "Sue Ann Nivens"

Mary Richards is a thirty-something single woman who settles in Minneapolis after breaking up with a boyfriend. She lands a job as an associate producer of the evening news at WJM-TV, which happens to be the area's lowest-rated station. Her boss, Lou Grant, hates her spunk but often looks to her to solve newsroom (or even personal) problems. Mary's other coworkers include news writer Murray Slaughter, egomaniacal anchorman Ted Baxter and ``Happy Homemaker'' Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White). Mary's home is a modest studio apartment -- and her upstairs neighbor, Rhoda Morgenstern, quickly becomes a good friend. Later in the series, Mary moves to a plush high-rise apartment before leaving Minneapolis and WJM for good.
