After two years, NBC has had enough of Betty White‘s carousing, hijinks, and verisimilitude (don’t actually know what that word means), and has just up and cancelled Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, a show that has old people doing ridiculous things. But ridiculous in a self-aware funny way. Not ridiculous like shitting themselves on a family road trip.

Disgusting.

Anyway, the 91 year-old White will probably find work on a lesser channel, with the only channel now deemed lesser than NBC being Spike TV.

Kevin Bapp’s mash-up of The Golden Girls and Super Friends is perfect. Now get to work on an Empty Nest/Hawkman spin-off. With Krypto the Superdog as Dreyfus, of course.

Thanks for the tip, Lisa.

Prank Ideas Betty White Should Use On Her New Show http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/prank-ideas-betty-white-should-use-on-her-new-show/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/prank-ideas-betty-white-should-use-on-her-new-show/#comments Fri, 01 Apr 2011 00:24:26 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=204881 And some she probably shouldn't.

Unless it is all part of an elaborate April Fool’s Day prank, Betty White will star in her own Punk’d style prank show for NBC. Yeah, that’s the same network that went with Jay Leno over Conan. Is it any wonder they’re turning to an 89-year-old woman for inspiration? At any rate, a few proposed pranks for the show have been leaked (by “leaked” I mean I pissed them out myself a few minutes ago). Take a look.

Here Comes the Stork

A frantic Betty White will show up at Ed Asner’s house claiming she became pregnant after one of their weekly, all-out, anything-goes sex romps.

Won’t You Let Me Take You On A Sea Cruise?

Impersonating a travel agent, White will call John Travolta‘s private line demanding payment for a gay cruise he took late last year.

Golden Girl

Using a concealed water bottle, Betty will stop by several Hollywood hot spots and pretend to wet herself. She will repeatedly ask for a new chair until the manager finally refuses, at which point she will begin sobbing on the floor in a puddle of her own faux urine.

This Place Is Dead

Betty will sit on a seat at LAX pretending to be dead until someone notices. If no one notices, it will still be fun to watch Betty White pretending to be dead in an airport.

You Ought To Be In Pictures

Betty White will arrange for a meeting with Justin Bieber in order to pitch him on a remake of Harold and Maude. When he accepts. Betty will forcefully demand the two close the deal via the “casting couch.”

We’re All Pink On the Inside

After setting up a business meeting with porn producer Steven Hirsch, Betty will give a PowerPoint presentation on her new interracial porn concept, BlackinWhite.com.

Not Enough Time On the Clock

Betty goes to a car dealership and asks the salesman about a five year lease.

Special Thanks to Penn Collins

Betty White‘s Off Their Rockers” is the real actual name of a real actual show that has been given an official greenlight by NBC. It’s a prank show where White, 89 years young, will pull pranks on a group of unsuspecting young people along with her trusty gang of senior citizens, and it’s really happening. It remains to be seen if this schedule will be incredibly taxing on White, who’s already a regular on the TV Land hit, “Hot In Cleveland,” but one things for sure: she making every other elderly person look downright lazy. Here’s the press release:

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — March 31, 2011 — NBC will broadcast “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” (working title) a new hidden-camera comedy show hosted and executive -produced by seven-time Emmy Award winner Betty White, it was announced today be Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios. The series of 12 half-hour episodes will be produced by Kinetic Content, the new company run by Chris Coelen (“Secret Millionaire”).

‪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 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.

‪Caroline Kusser, Director North America of SevenOne International, said: “We are thrilled to work with Betty White and Chris Coelen — an absolute dream team for this hilarious international smash hit.”

Taylor Swift To Bring Her So-So Voice To ‘The Lorax’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/taylor-swift-to-bring-her-so-so-voice-to-the-lorax/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/taylor-swift-to-bring-her-so-so-voice-to-the-lorax/#comments Thu, 17 Mar 2011 18:55:28 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=202191 You know what 'The Lorax' needs?

Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” is a classic children’s book that teaches kids to be more mindful of the natural world. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, teaches kids about drawing hearts on composition books. Now these two forces will collide, as Taylor Swift lends her voice to the upcoming 3D computer animated Dr. Seuss adaptation The Lorax.

She’s joining a pretty solid cast that includes Danny DeVito as the titular Lorax, Ed Helms as the Once’ler, Zac Efron as “Ted, the young boy who searched for the Lorax,” Rob Riggle as King O’Hare and Betty White as Grammy Norma. Swift herself will be playing Audrey, Ted’s love interest. Man, I wonder what Dr. Seuss would think of the idea of adding a “love interest” to his stories. He’d probably write a really angry rhyming couplet about it. (via Deadline)
