This week on “Yo, Is This Ageist?” Anonymous asked:
I came across this new TV show, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” in which Betty and her contemporaries play pranks on folks who are of a lesser age, like suddenly flash mob dancing in a mall, or asking passersby whether it’s okay to go all the way on a first date.
So is this condescending? Ageist? Stupid and badly written television comedy? Which is it?
It’s stupid and badly written, definitely, and therefore condescending. But it’s better to see olders on dumb television than not on television at all, and they’re holding their own. So I give Betty & Co. a thumbs up.
