Plot Synopsis

Three fabulous best friends from LA -- novelist Melanie Moretti, eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs, and former soap star Victoria Chase -- are on their way to Paris when their plane makes an unexpected stop in Cleveland. When they realize that they are the hottest women in Cleveland, they decide to stay and start a new life together by renting a house with a feisty caretaker, Elka. Season 3 ended when the women found a baby on their doorstep and with Elka hooking up with Pierre, her long-time hair-dresser. Now, in Season 4, which premiered on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 10pm ET, the ladies quickly learn the identity of the baby. Plus, Melanie stumbles into a new job opportunity at Cleveland's best public relations agency, where she helps PR exec and former Miss Ohio Chloe Summerlin. On her way to the job interview, Melanie hits it off with Alec, Cleveland's Sexiest Bachelor, during an embarrassing situation in the elevator -- and the awkwardness continues when Melanie discovers Alec is one of the PR firm's head honchos....and Chloe's ex-husband. HOT IN CLEVELAND returned with a live episode to kick off the last half of its fourth season, picking up where the Winter season finale left off when Joy discovered what illegal activities Elka and Mamie had been up to. The Season 4 Summer Premiere -- featuring guest stars William Shatner, Brian Baumgartner, Danny Pudi, Georgia Engel and Shirley Jones -- aired at 10pm ET (live)/10pm PT (live-to-tape) on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 on TV Land.
