Betty White ROCKS Saturday Night Live
The only woman who would cause my no DVR-owning self to stay home on a Saturday night is Betty White. And it was worth it because she was hilarious on Saturday Night Live. That was the funniest SNL I've seen in a long time. Betty White is 88 1/2 and still has star power. A campaign on Facebook made her SNL hosting dreams come true. My favorite skit was the NPR-spoof muffin skit. White played a guest muffin baker on a radio food show. She was talking about her "muffin". Boy, they just rode with that one. One of the hosts asked if there was a cherry in the muffin and White said, "My muffin hasn't had a cherry since 1939." LOL! White was edgy and just pure funny. Not only did she host a full-hour live show at the age of 88, but according to the Boston Globe she raked in the highest ratings for SNL since Tina Fey played Sarah Palin during the 2008 elections. Go' head Betty! I can't wait to watch her in TV Land's new sitcom Hot In Cleveland. I've loved White in the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Golden Girls and do you remember Mama's Family? That was my show! Shout out to my fly Baby Boomers who remember White from the game show Password. So, I'm sure she'll shine in this one too. Jay Z was the musical guest. Dedicating his performance of "Forever Young" was right on. If you haven't seen SNL it's worth going on NBC.com to watch it. Keep flying high Betty White!
