In one episode Bette is re-doing a room and calls out for "Dave", who is never seen. In real life, Bette's personal architect/designer is named David. See more »
Throughout the series when Bette's accompanist Oscar is playing piano it is frequently clear that is not actually playing because the position of his hands is nowhere near the actual range of what is being played. See more »
The first fall TV hit of 2000 happens to be the perfect vehicle for Bette Midler since she plays herself ala Jerry Seinfeld. It's well written, well acted and she has an outstanding supporting cast including Joanna Gleason as her best friend and manager Connie. Even though the show runs opposite "Millionaire", "Bette" could be the final answer to compete with Regis. A very funny show! I hope (to borrow a quote from another hit Wednesday CBS show from this year) it doesn't get "voted off the island." The best CBS sitcom on Wednesday night since "The Nanny."
