Who DARES to cancel Betty White?!?!!?
NBC has announced that after two seasons, BETTY WHITE'S prank show "Off Their Rockers" is getting the axe. It was kind of like the show "Punk'd", but with old people punking young people.
When the show premiered last April, it pulled in 12 million viewers. But it's seen a ratings slide since then, and the season two finale this Tuesday only brought in about 4 million.
It sounds like the door's not TOTALLY closed yet though. The head of the show's production house told Deadline.com, quote, "The interest we have already received from other networks is a testament to the show."
It is GOOD to be Jerry Seinfeld!
It's been 15 years since "Seinfeld" ended, and JERRY SEINFELD still tops the list of the Highest-Earning Comedians. In fact, this is his third year in a row at #1.
And that's despite a $53 MILLION DROP in earnings since 2009.
You're probably thinking that the bulk of Jerry's money comes from "Seinfeld" royalties. But that's actually NOT true. Jerry made $32 million over the past year, and $27 million of that came from TOURING.
1. Jerry Seinfeld, $32 million
2. Terry Fator, $24 million
