    Its almost as cheap for them to do 20 eps as it would be for them to do 10 or 13, because they do the same or similar pranks all at once and then insert them into different episode’s and build Betty Whites little vignettes around them. The vignettes for all 20 eps can probably all be filmed in a week or two max. NBC was foolish to cancel this, though the ratings did drop, it was because last season they ran not only a ton of repeat episodes but did countless “best ofs” which replayed many of the pranks that were shown in the repeats.

    I too agree that NBC is likely kicking themselves over their decision to cancel. Lifetime just got it in time! I believe NBC would have revived the show to premiere in Feb to replace one of their dying comedies.

    The show is incredibly cheap and the ratings it was pulling in last season were great compared to the NBC downfall this season.

    NBC should’ve just renewed this. It was doing better than every single one of their comedies this season lol
