NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

The Betty White Show is a sitcom that aired on CBS.

Joyce Whitman, a middle-aged actress, lands the lead in a fictitious police series, Undercover Woman (a parody of Angie Dickinson's Police Woman). Joyce is thrilled with the show, but less pleased to learn that the director is her ex-husband, John Elliot, whom she unfondly refers to as "old pickle puss". He responds in kind, supplying his star with an oversized male double named Hugo, a sexy, much younger onscreen sidekick, and dialogue not nearly as sharp as her tongue. Also on hand are Joyce's best friend, Mitzi Maloney, co-star actor Fletcher Huff, and network penny-pincher Doug Porterfield.
