Betty White’s Off Their Rockers: Cancelled by NBC; No Season Three

betty whites off their rockers canceled, no season 3NBC has cancelled Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, reports THR. The senior citizen prank series ran for two seasons and 26 episodes.

Off Their Rockers debuted to 12.26 million viewers in January 2012, following NBC’s 90th birthday tribute to White. The ratings fell off in subsequent episodes but were still strong enough for the peacock network to order a second round.

NBC brought it back early this year and often used the program to fill timeslots with back-to-back episodes. The ratings fell lower and lower.

The series finale aired on Tuesday night and featured a special appearance by White’s former Mary Tyler Moore Show co-star, Ed Asner. It drew a 1.0 in the demo with 4.0 million viewers.

While White won’t be returning to NBC any time soon, she still has a job on TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland. That sitcom is currently in its fourth season and season five is expected to debut this fall.

What do you think? Did you like the show? Are you sorry that there won’t be a third season of Betty White’s Off Their Rockers?

    Dumb move, NBC! This show was very funny. Maybe if you consistently had it on, people would have been able to watch it. Cancelling Betty White….for shame!

    I like Betty White, but I couldn’t watch one episode since it was such a terrible show and I consider an embarrassment for Betty White. She is much more talented than this show.

    Our local TV listing kept showing it as a repeat so I wasn’t watching it. I’m wondering if some idiot wasn’t listing it correctly. Now I’m wondering what I missed. I did see the finale and I loved it. I am sorry to see this show go…. But at least I can see Betty on HIC.
