NBC orders up Betty White unscripted

 Yes, Betty White can't be stopped: NBC just ordered a new hidden camera show called "Betty White's Off their Rockers," about seniors who punk young people, or I suppose people who are younger than Betty's 89.

 Here's relevant detail from the press release, and let me just check the date; nope, not April 1 yet...By the way, if I have been punk'ed by this, you''ll be the first to know...Betty, by the way, will host:

  "Known throughout Europe as "Benidorm Bastards," "Betty White’s Off Their Rockers" follows a band of seven senior citizens who make it their mission to play pranks on unsuspecting younger people. ?"Betty White is a comedic genius who escalates hilarity in any situation," said  Paul Telegdy. "Viewers will thoroughly enjoy watching her pull one over on the unsuspecting youth of America." ?"People have been telling me that I’m ‘Off My Rocker’ for years -- now I can prove it," commented White. ?"NBC is a terrific home for great comedy and Betty White’s mischievous sense of humor is a perfect fit with this format which has shattered ratings expectations and garnered critical acclaim in every territory around the world," said Coelen, CEO of Kinetic Content.
