With Hot In Cleveland amassing a staggering 54-episode order in only 8 months, the sitcom starring Betty White is headed to syndication. CBS TV Distribution has closed a deal to acquire the exclusive broadcast domestic distribution rights for TV Land’s sitcom.

Hot In Cleveland recently posted its lowest-rated season premiere but continues to be TV Land’s flagship series.
