Betty White: THIS clip you must watch
Betty White -- pretty much indisputably and by popular consent (see: People's Choice Awards) -- is maybe the best-loved sitcom actress on TV, or at the very least, the best-loved sitcom actress on TV who was born 90 years ago.
She's feted on a 90-minute birthday show this Monday (on NBC) that will be followed by a brief preview of her new reality series, "Betty White's Off Their Rockers." Little is known about this newcomer (including a locked-in air date), but an NBC preview clip out this past Monday is making the rounds. It is -- in fact -- wild. Even I thought I had seen it all. But this I have never seen.
Will the show be a huge hit or a flop that will forever be remembered as long as there is a "TV" out there?
I'm honestly not sure which, but the clip is VERY funny. If the clip is representative, this series will do well -- that's a guarantee.
(Think of the possibilities: If this becomes a hit, then Betty White will have been the one who saved NBC. Some career, indeed.)
Show's a "Candid Camera"-type affair in which old people punk young people. Did I mention that there's no firm air date yet? There will be. Take a look ...
