[via press release from NBC]


UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - February 14 - Howie Mandel and Nick Cannon (NBC's "America's Got Talent") deliver big laughs to all new episodes of "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" airing Tuesday, February 19 and Tuesday, February 26 respectively at 8 p.m. ET. Both episodes will be followed at 8:30 p.m. ET by special "best of" episodes from season one of NBC's hidden camera series.

The fun starts on Tuesday, February 19 at 8:00 p.m., when Betty White prepares her house to accommodate special guest Howie Mandel and his germaphobia. Also, Howie schools Betty in the art of fist-tapping instead of hand-shaking, with unexpected consequences. Meanwhile, Betty's posse of senior pranksters is out on the streets, busy pulling pranks on the younger generation. An elderly man asks a stranger for advice on "manscaping," a senior enlists a man's help protecting a top secret document from people who are tailing him, a prankster shakes hands with a stranger before sharing news of her contagious hand rash, and an affectionate senior citizen offers "free Grandpa hugs" to passersby.

Then on Tuesday, February 26 at 8:00 p.m., Nick Cannon is the special guest, and quickly discovers the darker side of Betty White when discussing his twins and the advantages of having a look-alike. And later, Betty shows Nick who the real expert is when it comes to hip hop. Also this week, a bathrobe-clad senior searches for the art class in which he'll be a nude model, a lady offering to take pictures for tourists decides to turn the camera on herself instead, and an elderly prankster serves as a "cart valet" at Costco, helping sanitize carts for customers.

The Off Their Rockers Prankster's Challenge" continues through February 20, inviting viewers to send in their funniest prank ideas. If Betty and the show's producers like the prank, it could appear in the show's season finale, with the winner's name and hometown shown on air and also featured with the prank on the "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" homepage on www.nbc.com. Guidelines for submission are detailed on the site at http://www.nbc.com/betty-whites-off-their-rockers/exclusives/pranksters-challenge/, where prank ideas can be submitted through midnight ET on February 20.

Chris Coelen, Betty White, Emma Conway, Tim Van Aelst, Kathleen Burns and Matilda Zoltowski are the executive producers of the series, produced by Kinetic Content.
