TV Land‘s historic reunion of the female cast of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” on the network’s original sitcom, “Hot in Cleveland,” is here! Next Wednesday, September 4 th at 10pm ET/PT, TV Land brings together Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, Georgia Engel and “Hot in Cleveland” regular Betty White for an unprecedented reunion of one of the most revered TV casts of all time. This is the first time in over 30 years that the five former castmates have gotten together for a sitcom.
In the episode, Elka (White), Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) Joy (Jane Leeves) and Victoria (Wendie Malick) are getting ready for their “birthdates” – their annual birthday tradition of setting each other up for dates – but choose to shake things up a bit this year. Elka and Mamie Sue (Engel) decide they want to get their bowling team back together, aptly named GLOB: the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling. The team, which includes Elka, Mamie Sue, Diane (Moore), Peg (Leachman) and Angie (Harper), had a falling out decades ago after their championship season went to their heads. Meanwhile, Victoria meets with the indie director she idolizes ( Jesse Tyler Ferguson ) and is surprised to find that he has a very unique trait; Joy can’t believe that her date ( George Hamilton ) has a more “mature” taste in women; and Melanie is psyched that her set-up is a plastic surgeon…until she isn’t anymore. The season finale of “Hot in Cleveland” airs right after this amazing reunion at 10:30pm ET/PT – with special guest star Craig Ferguson.
