No Joke Baywatch on Comedy Central in Early August; More Guest Stars Lined-Up for Hot in Cleveland

In honor of The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff, Comedy Central is warming up the hot seat with some of the best slow-motion running to ever appear on television: Baywatch. The world's most popular show will air on Comedy Central for a limited time only, so make the most of it by watching each night! Tune in for shark attacks and high-cut bathing suits on the busiest, most accident-prone beach in California. Episodes air in late late night (superlatefuntime) starting at 2:30am from Monday, August 2, 2010 through Thursday, August 12, 2010. That's eight nights of Baywatch nights! An episode each will air on the Mon-Wed airings at 2:30am and the two Thursday airings air from 2:30am-5am. Baywatch was last seen in the U.S. on ION Television briefly in 2008. Prior to that the show was on TNN/Spike TV for 5 years from 2001-2006, with sister network TV Land airing it a few times as well. And of course its first venture on cable was on USA Network for many years.
And don't forget after these airings are finished, The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff world premiere is Sunday, August 15 at 10pm! See The Hoff get roasted! We're told Comedy Central has no plans on airing Baywatch after these airings, so watch while you can! Say, "I'll Be Ready!"

TV Land announced today that legendary comedic actor Tim Conway will appear in an upcoming episode of the critically-acclaimed hit TV Land sitcom, Hot in Cleveland. Also confirmed as guest stars in upcoming episodes are Dave Foley, Canadian comic actor, writer, director, producer and co-star of The Kids in the Hall and NewsRadio, Gary Anthony Williams from Boston Legal and 16-year-old Mark Indelicato, who played Betty's fashion-obsessed nephew on ABC's Ugly Betty.
Tim Conway, beloved for his hilarious characters on The Carol Burnett Show, goes toe-to-toe with Max (Carl Reiner) to win the heart of Elka (Betty White) in an episode entitled "It's Not That Complicated," scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, July 28, 2010.
In "The Play's the Thing" airing Wednesday, August 4, Mark Indelicato plays Zack, a drama nerd and fan of Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) who invites his hero to give some notes on his school's production of "Romeo & Juliet." Gary Anthony Williams plays Coach Taylor who trains and treats the drama team like a football team, much to Zack's dismay. Hilarity ensues when Ms. Chase ends up giving more than just a few notes.
Dave Foley joins the Hot in Cleveland cast for an episode as Dr. Robert Moore, the head of a local medical foundation who comes to see Victoria (Malick) when she fakes a deadly disease to gain sympathy and votes for her Emmy® nomination. "Good Luck Faking the Goiter" airs Wednesday, August 11 and also guest stars pop sensation Joe Jonas, lead singer of Jonas Brothers.
Hot in Cleveland, which airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesdays, stars sitcom favorites Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and 16-time Emmy®-nominee Betty White. The show, which has garnered great critical acclaim and record-breaking ratings, was picked up on July 7 for a second season of 20 episodes. The second season will begin production in October 2010 and is expected to premiere in January 2011 on TV Land!
