Legendary TV actress Betty White has starred in many TV shows in her career -- The Golden Girls, Life with Elizabeth, Hot in Cleveland, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Palace and The Betty White Show (two versions!) -- just to name a handful. Some ran for years while others were cancelled fairly quickly. How does her newest, Betty White's Off Their Rockers, stack up? Will it see season two?
White hosts the hidden camera series in which senior citizens play pranks on unsuspecting members of the younger generations. NBC gave the TV show a special preview back in January, following the network's Betty White's 90th Birthday special. It drew a 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 12.26 million total viewers. The debut was in fourth place in its timeslot but, at that point, was NBC's second-highest rated show of the season.
