NBC Cancels Betty White's Off Their Rockers

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (July 11, 2013) -NBC has cancelled Betty White's Off Their Rockers after two seasons, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, which featured White and other seniors playing pranks on younger people, aired what is now its final episode on July 9.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Off Their Rockers averaged 5.3 million viewers per episode, but the numbers started to decline in season two. Off Their Rockers' first episode in 2012, which celebrated White's 90th birthday, generated 12 million viewers.

To make matters worse, Off Their Rockers, which was targeted to an older audience, did not do well with the all-important 18-49 audience.

White is still starring in TV Land's Hot In Cleveland, which is now in its fifth season.
