Bette premiered on CBS on April 28, 20071, 2000. It's not easy being divine. Bette Midler may perform for sellout crowds and adoring fans, but that doesn't stop her small-screen husband from falling asleep as soon as they get into bed. She may have been nominated for two Academy Awards, but her teenage television daughter is still embarrassed to be seen with her at the mall. And then there's the constant dieting, bingeing and dreaming of plastic surgery. So what's a diva to do? It's a tough life, but Bette loves every minute of it. And if she doesn't don't worry - you'll hear all about it. Join the truly divine Bette Midler as she makes her network television series debut in a show about an incomparable superstar who happens to be none other than Bette Midler.
