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.
