According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has pulled the plug on White's hidden camera series, which White hosted and executive produced.

"Betty White's Off Their Rockers," which followed senior citizens pranking younger people while being filmed, ran for two seasons on NBC. The show launched with a special preview following NBC's televised birthday party for White's 90th in 2012 and brought in more than 12 million viewers.

When "Off Their Rockers" made its official debut in April 2012, its ratings were strong for the struggling Peacock network. The show returned in January 2013 and delivered decent ratings, especially by NBC's standards, but the network shelved it in March and brought it back for late June and early July.

The finale, which featured White's "Mary Tyler Moore" co-star Ed Asner and aired on July 9, had a 1.0 rating, according to TV By The Numbers.
