'Hot In Cleveland': Regis Philbin Plays Gay Hairdresser Who Gets Fired

David Spade dropped by the season finale of "Hot in Cleveland" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on TV Land) for a fun mini-reunion with former "Just Shoot Me" co-star Wendie Malick. He played a mean -- make that catty -- hairdresser that the ladies fell in love with immediately.

But he was perhaps a bit too mean when he fired his own father, played with manic glee by Regis Philbin, from the salon. Philbin's character was also a gay man, which made his outrageous behavior and relentless flirting an absolute blast for Betty White's Elka.

It was all in good fun, and of course the women were able to get Philbin's character his job back. But there are advantages to knowing the show has already been renewed for a fourth season.

As "Hot in Cleveland" has been very open about being a classic style of sitcom, it was both shocking and somewhat predictable when they found a baby on the front porch. Could it be that injection of a new young character that classic sitcoms always seemed to think needed to happen after a few seasons?

Find out as "Hot in Cleveland" returns to TV Land in Fall 2012.
