    The attempt has already been made… Is “Hot in Cleveland” still on the air?

    Hot in Cleveland is not the same as The Golden Girls. The Golden Girls took women in their 60’s and 70’s and made them live together. The Hot in Cleveland ladies are still, per Golden Girls standards, young.

    Pertaining to the topic, it would depend on who they cast. Just because they use big names (like you have listed above) doesnt mean it will be any good.

    I would watch it, but more than likely would not like it.

    Hot in Clevland is completely different. I wouldn’t watch that particular movie though.

    I agree that hot in cleveland is not like The Golden Girls. But both of them are great shows. In my opinion The Golden Girls will always be the best….. no one can beat it.

    In my opinion, there are just some shows and moviese that should never be touched, remade, sequels, etc. In terms of television shows, The Golden Girls is a show that they should never remake or touch again, because it was simply fantastic, and one of the best comedy series of all time. Friends is another show that should never be touched.

    In terms of movies, some classics that should never be touched are The Wizard of Oz, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Gone with the Wind, etc.

    The (inevitable) comparisons have been there since the time “Hot in Cleveland” premiered. I wasn’t suggesting that “Cleveland” is a literal remake of “Golden Girls,” but every single person I’ve ever talked to about “Cleveland” almost instantly makes the comparison.

    Hot in Cleveland and even Sex and the City are sorta variations on The Golden Girls. There’s been so many buddy female comedies (featuring women of all different ages) since GG ended. Plus, Golden Girls reruns are still pretty popular. So, no remake please.

    Definitely not! The original series is still fresh and fantastic even today. I do wish when all four were still alive, that they made a Golden Girls film.

    Nooooooooooooo.  The Golden Girls should not be touched.

    As someone mentioned, there are several shows that are variations of The Golden Girls and they are as follows:

    Designing Women
    Living Single
    Girlfriends
    Sex & The City
    Desperate Housewives
    Girls

    I actually still watch Golden Girls quite frequently on DVD and in syndication. The series really is the definition of timeless; sure, some of the references date the show, but there was magic in that bottle, and I don’t know if any other cast could recreate the spark that those four women had together. Still so sad thinking that three of the four are gone…
