Betty White, You Did NOT Disappoint On 'SNL' — We Loved Every Minute!

Sun, May 9, 2010 9:23am EST by 3 Comments

The coolest old lady on the planet solidified her title with a hilarious hosting gig on Saturday Night Live!

When Betty White, 88, first poked her head into last night’s Mother’s Day sketch on Saturday Night Live, the audience freaked out and cheered — and she deserved every minute of their praise! When I found out Betty would be hosting SNL I was worried she might be limited because of her age, but she appeared in tons of sketches and brought that adorable Betty White charm to everything she did. She even made me feel stupid for using Facebook! (“Now that I do know what [Facebook is],” she said during her opening monologue, “I have to say — it sounds like a huge waste of time.”) Oh, Betty, you’ve still got it.

It was especially nice to finally have a funny host, after suffering through snoozers like Ryan Phillippe and Gabourey Sidibe. Keep listening to your fans, SNL — we know how to pick ‘em!

Here are some of my favorite Betty sketches from May 8:

BFFs, did YOU love Betty on SNL as much as I did?

Betty White was hilarious on SNL, such a great lady! I hadn’t been aware of the hype around her hosting before the show but it was truly worth it. I hardly find live TV as funny as it is said to be, but she really delivered it! (I had only seen two episodes of SNL before this one and I wasn’t blown away.) I am so happy she did it, it was an absolute victory. Loved every moment Betty was on, can only recommend it.
