UPDATES-NBC PRIMETIME SCHEDULE - Wednesday May 2, 2012 - Wednesday May 9, 2012



05/02/2012 (08:30PM - 09:00PM) (Wednesday) : Betty White’s posse of senior pranksters is back on the streets, pulling outrageous pranks on the younger generation. As star of the series, Betty shares her comical pearls of wisdom, entertains viewers with funny sketches between the pranks, and this week, gets a visit from actor Rob Schneider, hoping to land a different kind of role. Also this week, a prankster tries out the food samples she’s supposed to be giving out to customers, a widow tries to enlist two young girls in fulfilling her late husband’s last request, and a waitress offers a customer something he won’t find on the menu. Plus, one prankster borrows a girl’s cell phone for a long distance – and long-winded – call to France, and a man has an extreme reaction to a young girl talking too loudly on her cell phone.



05/09/2012 (08:00PM - 08:30PM) (Wednesday) : Betty White’s merry posse of senior pranksters is back on the streets, while Betty entertains viewers with funny sketches and comical pearls of wisdom between the pranks. This week, Adam West ("Batman") gets in on the fun searching for a masked man in a cape, while an elderly man and his wife try and find a young couple who want to "swing." Also, a wife enlists a stranger to pretend they are romantically involved to annoy her husband, and a prankster tells restaurant customers that his heart came from a surprising donor.

    i enjoyed BFF

    Wait, a show NBC didn’t promote and didn’t announce when it would premiere or when it was being shown didn’t do well in the ratings?

    Here, let me show you something. This is my shocked face. ===:-O

    Off Their Rockers is doing a little better than Whitney did in it’s timeslot. Correct me if i’m wrong, but Whitney averaged around a 1.5 or 1.4 there, and Off Their Rockers is averaging around 1.7. Whitney is definitly getting renewed in my eyes, because its the best new comedy NBC has had in the ratings. I really miss Whitney, I loved it

  • Stanley

    I knew NBC wouldn’t keep that loser on the schedule during May sweeps.

    Did anybody even really watch that show?

    They were better off giving Chelsea like an 18-episode order instead of 12.

    That BFF was a waste of a lead-in seriously.

    @ NYC_Lover Off Their Rockers is doing better and I think it should comeback in the fall to lead off Wednesdays and give Whitney a boost and the new multi-cams.

  • NYC_Lover

    @Stanley I think off their rockers will be given the 9pm hour(with heavy promotion) and Whitney leading the 8pm hour.
