TV Land Cancels 'Hot in Cleveland' After 6 Seasons

TV Land has announced that Hot in Cleveland will conclude its run at the end of its current 24-episode sixth season. So far, only two episodes of the now final season have aired.

In a statement, TV Land president Larry W. Jones shares, "It's been an honor to work with Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and the incomparable Betty White as well as our executive producers Suzanne Martin, Todd Milliner, Sean Hayes and the rest of our exceptional writers, production team and crew. The passion and talent they brought to the set each and every week over the past five years has put TV Land on the map as a network dedicated to quality original programming. We will continue to celebrate the show and are looking forward to a fantastic series finale."

Hot in Cleveland launched in June 2010 to record numbers for the cable network. By the end of its run, the comedy will have aired 128 episodes. Over the past few seasons, ratings have dipped off quite a bit which is likely one of the reasons for the cancellation. TV Land is also looking to transition into single camera comedies for its future original programming.
