Rockers debuted to some 12 million viewers in April 2012 as part of the network’s 90th birthday celebration for the Hot in Cleveland star. The series averaged 5.3 million viewers in its second season, which wrapped this Tuesday.

The cancellation comes on the heels of NBC giving a series order to Wall of Fame, an eight-episode game show where families must correctly answer pop culture trivia questions and guess which celeb Wall of Famers responded correctly as well.

TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect the news.

    • I’m 29 and I’m sick of people telling their age just to prove that what they like is timeless! And yes, I came on here specifically to complain about that! Go me! (Or not.)

  • I’m not surprised fortunately. The show had a great first season halfway after a while it just got boring and repetitive.

    • But this is a cheap show that was a utility player for the network. It seemed to get good (by NBC standards) in-season numbers when they needed to plug a hole in their schedule. Why would they try to come up with a less well-known hole-plugging show?

    • You really haven’t seen a lot of Betty White have you?

      Betty White has been doing TV since TV was invented. She has been fired or canceled or let go more times than I would ever be able to put up with it. Her attitude most likely is “I’m 91, I’ll live”, then continue with her work on Hot in Cleveland.

      • I know. Whether or not she’s heard it before or could handle it wasn’t what I was saying.

        • @ April-Ann I understood exactly what you were saying about Betty White. You do not have to defend yourself and your point of view. :-)

  • Old women made sexual advances to young men. Hilarious. No wonder this didn’t last.

  • Betty White deserved way better thabn OFF THEIR ROCKERS. This kind of show may have flown in the 1960s in the heyday of CANDID CAMERA but now? Why not more sophisticated comedies and dramas featuring characters that could be played by these expereicned actors instead of this embarrassment?

  • Thank the Maker. There’s already way too much stuff on TV about people being obnoxious to other people for “entertainment” purposes.

  • this was the first show in years that I’d actually watch on NBC. So disappointed that a great and entertaining show like this was cancelled for the mind numbing, self absorbed and stupid reality tv shows.
