Hot in Cleveland
10/9c TV Land
With impressive ratings, a slew of notable guest stars and Hollywood's current octogenarian "it girl," Betty White, leading the way, this sitcom took TV land by storm, and earned a second-season renewal (of 20 episodes) barely halfway through its first. Speaking of storms, tonight's Season 1 finale cooks up a doozy as a tornado churns through Ohio, and Melanie, Joy and Victoria are thunderstruck when the only safe shelter they can find is Elka's secret room in the cellar.

Granted, it's only the fourth overall pick, but that is the way the NBA draft-lottery system is set up. Blake Griffin is widely expected to be taken at No. 1 by the Clippers, who managed to grab the top pick in last month's lottery. After the first pick, it gets more murky with Ricky Rubio from Spain and Hasheem Thabeet from UConn.

Only Mary Murphy truly knows what her Hot Tamale Train is all about, but tonight's first results show of the season will find two of the Top 20 dancers getting off at the next station. Before that happens, however, the bottom three couples will dance for their TV lives in solo routines, and if that's not enough sizzle for you, rapper Sean Kingston performs "Fire Burning" from his second album, Tomorrow.
