TV Land's hit original sitcom Hot in Cleveland returns to heat up the network's summer line-up with 12 new episodes beginning Wednesday, June 15 at 10 PM ET/PT, immediately followed by the new sitcom Happily Divorced, starring Fran Drescher, as you all know already. New episodes pick up right where the show left off in March: Elka had just been convicted of being in possession of stolen goods and is now on the run, while Melanie, Victoria and Joy are left wondering where she is. Now, the women must scramble to find Elka and get her back in time for her sentencing, and they find her in the last place anyone would expect...Amish country.
Upcoming Hot in Cleveland episodes will see a new writing job for Melanie at Woman's Day magazine, Joy reconnecting with her long-lost son, an embarrassing mistaken identity for Victoria, Elka finding a new special someone and a jaw-dropping cliffhanger that will leave everyone stunned.
Amazing guest stars – all heavy hitters from television and film – are lined up to round out the run of season two, including writer and actor Buck Henry (Get Smart, 30 Rock), Cedric the Entertainer (The Steve Harvey Show), Dick Van Patten (Eight is Enough), John Mahoney (Frasier), Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond), Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer), George Wendt (Cheers), Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life), Richard Burgi (Desperate Housewives), Antonio Sabato Jr. (The Bold and the Beautiful), Michael McMillian (True Blood) and returning favorites Amy Sedaris, (Strangers with Candy), Huey Lewis (Just Shoot Me!) and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld, TV Land's upcoming sitcom The Exes).

Last Man Standing - "Trick or Treat" (ABC, 8:00PM ET/PT)
It’s Halloween and the Baxter family is excited for their annual party, except for Mike who’s reluctantly tasked with choosing the theme. In hopes of turning everyone against the holiday, Mike decides that maybe if the whole family has to dress up like each other they’ll end up making fun of one another. Eve dresses up like Mandy and Mandy dresses down like Eve, Kristin and Ryan swap roles, and Mike shows up to the party as… Donald Trump!? The impersonating turns into bickering but in the end, the Baxters come together to support Vanessa as she learns that she’s being laid off.

Dr. Ken - "D.K.'s Korean Ghost Story" (ABC, 8:30PM ET/PT)
On Halloween, Allison is disappointed the holiday doesn’t seem to scare Dave anymore, meaning her little boy is growing up, perhaps too fast. But that might change after D.K. tells a scary Korean gwishin (ghost) story. The Park family, as well as the gang at Welltopia, bring the story to life playing the various gwishins.

Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse - "Jack" (OWN, 9:00PM ET/PT)
Marcus deals with the loss of one of his former teammates.
