Move over Ashton Kutcher, there’s a new prankster in town. However, this prankster is quite the contrast to the young, dashing star of Two and a Half Men, and just so happens to be the last surviving member of the four main characters on The Golden Girls. You guessed it. This brand-sparkling-new con artist is none other than Betty White. That’s right, the legendary actress who earlier this year graduated from octogenarian to nonagenarian, is not only hosting a brand new hidden camera series on NBC, but is an executive producer as well.
Betty White’s Off Their Rockers is a new series highlighting her mischievous yet highly amusing nature. The show comprises a handful of seniors who have concocted numerous witty and jocular stunts to pull on those not quite so long-in-the-tooth. Capitalizing on conventional senior stereotypes, Betty White and her crew manage to give Kutcher, and his Punk’d series, a serious run for his money.
By way of brazen behavior and cheeky ploys to get those of the younger generations to fall whole-heartedly for their schemes (all the while filming their hilarious reactions), these brilliant old-timers manage to not only prove that 90 could very well be the new 50, but also that youth truly is a state of mind.
Catch Betty White’s Off Their Rockers premier on April 4, 2012 on NBC.
