  • Betty White’s Off Their Rockers (Jan. 16, 9:30 p.m, NBC) Who else but Betty White could host a show in which “oldsters” (that’s her word) play tricks on unsuspecting younger people. White, who has had one of the most amazing comebacks in entertainment history, isn’t picking the pranks, but she is making sure they’re not “mean-spirited,” as she told an interviewer. Some of them are X-rated, though. That’s all we’re going to say.
