'Betty White's Off Their Rockers' Dropped by NBC
Betty White fans, prepare to fly your flags at half-mast.
NBC network has canceled the reality prank show "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" after two seasons.
The show offered a sort of geriatric version of "Punk'd," during which senior citizens would pull gags on people. The series got off to an encouraging start, scoring a 2.2 rating/6 share in the advertiser-sought 18 49 demographic with a Jan. 16, 2012 preview, which was preceded by a 90th birthday extravaganza for White.
However, ratings were not too kind for the second season of the series. "Off Their Rockers" hit a series low of of 0.8/3 last week, though it did grow to a 1.0/3 with its season finale on Tuesday.
White can still be seen on the TVLand sitcom "Hot in Cleveland."
