How could Betty White go from successfully hosting SNL (and appearing in an extraordinary number of sketches considering her age) in May to struggling on a taped sitcom just a couple months later? Is she really that bad off?

R9, I like Betty White and I agree that she was great on SNL (despite the glut of grandma-says-a-bad-word material), but she definitely seems to be struggling in Hot in Cleveland. %0D %0D Maybe it's that SNL was just one week and this show tapes many weeks in a row -- I don't know, but she is slow coming in with her lines, which is made all the more obvious by the fact that everything she says is supposed to be a snappy comeback.

Yes, when One Day at a Time premiered in 1975, Barbara was the adorable baby sister
In fact, one of my favorite episodes was Barbara's first day of school. Julie hid a joint in Barbara's lunch box and then forgot where she hid it. The kindegarten teacher found it and the infraction was placed in Barbara's permanent record. Ann Romano had two meltdowns in that episode.

Of course, because film gives an exact representation of the actual person. Just as Tom Cruise and Paul Newman are six feet tall on film. She has NOT gained anywhere near 25 pounds. She found the bikini body in the commercial was too thin for her. She looks amazing.

[quote]She found the bikini body in the commercial was too thin for her.%0D %0D Oh, please -- she would sell her sould to keep that bikini body. The only reason she's fatter is because that's what happens 90% of the time people lose weight -- they gain at least half of it back. I read her blog on the Jenny Craig website and she admits that she's done no exercise for months.%0D %0D Yes, the comparison to the other skinny bitches on the show makes her look even fatter, but if you watched the episode last week, you could see she had put on some serious pounds. I'm not saying she isn't really pretty -- even beautiful -- but half of the weight is back.

I disagree that Betty White is off her game on this series. I think her timing has been just as good on this as it was on SNL.
It's true that she had little to do in the most recent episode, but her character had been a focal point for a few episodes in previous weeks, and given her age, I wouldn't be surprised if the producers built in some light weeks for her so she can do less. Those shows are grueling to do.

No, R48, it isn't live, but it IS in front of a studio audience, so they don't film each person in separate takes unless something goes really wrong. This week, there was one spot that seemed like Betty was edited to have her come in more quickly with a line, and it was jarring. Seems like mostly they try to roll with it, but it seems to be tough for her.

I haven't watched the show, but it's pretty funny if Betty said "douche bag." That's the word that caused so much controversy in the Golden Girls pilot when Sophia said it. Before the show aired, NBC made them in a different word. I can't remember if you see Estelle's lips not being in sync with the word or whether they just inserted a shot of one of the other actresses during that line, but you can hear the audio is a bit off in that scene and the audience's screaming reaction to Estelle's line is out-of-proportion to the less offensive word that was edited in later.

Didn't like the latest episode (except for Joe Jonas, the Kids on the Hall guy and the Justin Bieber joke). Bette did seem a bit lost in this episode. I don't think that she can keep up with the busy work schedule a comedy show has these days. I seem to recall she only signed up for a couple of episodes and it wasn't planned to be a permanent gig.

She was "cute" when she started on "One Day At A Time," but only in that adolescent way and she hadn't really grown out of her baby fat. But by the time the series ended, she was drop-dead gorgeous, and of course that was a huge contrast with her sitcom sister.
