Plus, The Funniest Viewer-Submitted Pranks – Winners of the “Off Their Rockers Prankster’s Challenge” -- Are Revealed Along with the Winners’ Names and Hometowns in Season Finale

Special “Best of” Episode From Season One to Air July 2

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – June 17, 2013 – Original episodes of NBC’s popular hidden camera series “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” are slated to air Tuesday, June 25 and Tuesday July 9 at 8:30 p.m. ET, with a special “best of” episode from season 1 airing on the Tuesday in between, July 2, also at 8:30 p.m. ET.  Ed Asner, White’s former “Mary Tyler Moore” co-star, will be the special guest in the final episode of the season on July 9.  Plus, the winners of the “Off Their Rockers Prankster’s Challenge” – the funniest viewer-submitted pranks – will also be revealed in the July 9 episode, along with the winners’ names and hometowns.

The fun kicks off on June 25 with White’s sassy senior pranksters directing traffic inside a grocery store, giving movie-goers bad reviews of the movies they are about to see, and cutting loose at an arcade on a follow-along dance machine.   Also, one senior gives a young girl a ticket for an absurd violation involving a statue, while another blows bubbles on unsuspecting shoppers.

Then it’s time for the season 2 finale on July 9, with special guest star and seven-time Emmy Award winner Ed Asner.  First, he plays a lusty suitor of Betty White’s who she meets through online dating, and then later, appears as the prize White brings home from a charity auction.  Also this week, an elderly woman enlists a stranger’s help to check off her “bucket list” wish to take a nude photo of herself, and two senior tricksters provide a celebratory martini to a jogger as she finishes her run.  Plus, a man’s dentures accidentally fall into a cup of coffee he is supposed to be holding for someone, and a female prankster at a train station sneezes into her husband’s ashes, blowing them on to the horrified stranger sitting next to her. Also this week, the funniest viewer-submitted pranks -- winners of the “Off Their Rockers Prankster’s Challenge” -- are shown along with the winners’ names and hometowns.

Chris Coelen, Betty White, Emma Conway, Tim Van Aelst, Kathleen Burns and Matilda Zoltowski are the executive producers of the series, produced by Kinetic Content.

    They still had episodes left? Weird.

  • Jay S.

    Seriously, what did NBC have going on during the regular season that they couldn’t air these then? Strange.

    These were originally slated for Wednesdays after Whitney, but Dateline filled in instead.

    The fact that it is not on Saturdays means there’s still a sliver of hope for the show. Not much, though. It’s too bad. It was a good utility player that got lost in the shuffle of NBC’s comedy collapse.
