Betty White and Reatha Grey
Yep, Betty White's still got it.
The erstwhile Golden Girl's prank show Betty White's Off Their Rockers debuted Wednesday to 7.2 million viewers and a 1.8 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic to give NBC its biggest audience in the slot since November and best rating since January. Rockers' sneak peek in January earned 12.2 million viewers and a 2.6.
A White lead-in couldn't help Best Friends Forever, which premiered to 3.9 million viewers and a 1.2, putting it on par with timeslot predecessor Are You There, Chelsea?'s performance. Bent quietly bowed out with its final two episodes averaging 2.2 million and a 0.8.
One Tree Hill finale: How many tissues did you need?
One Tree Hill's series finale snagged 1.4 million viewers and a 0.8, rising slightly from last week.

On the flip side, Happy Endings (3.7 million, 1.6) wrapped up its second season with a season low, dropping three-tenths from last week.
