Thanks to NBC, which is using 89-year-old Betty White to juice its primetime ratings, CTV has picked up the peacock’s hidden camera comedy, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers.

White, of renewed TV fame with TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland, which also airs on CTV, is using her comedy chops to host the US version of the European format Benidorm Bastards.

CTV will debut Betty White’s Off Their Rockers on Jan. 16.

The prankster series features mostly elderly people going into the streets to pull a fast one on young people.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for the series, according to a Bell Media spokesperson.
