‘Betty White’s 90th Birthday: A Tribute To America’s Golden Girl’ airs Jan. 16 at 8 p.m., and we’ve got your first look!

Considering Betty White has been a staple on American television since 1945 — I’d do the math, but my head would literally explode — it’s only fitting America should throw her the ultimate 90th birthday party… on television. That’s right, Hollywood is honoring Betty with a star-studded TV special Jan. 16 on NBC. So strap on your pearls and tie your bonnets up tight; it’s time to celebrate grandma-style!

Some of Betty’s most memorable co-stars, from the ladies of Hot in Cleveland to the legendary Mary Tyler Moore, will pay tribute to the eternal Golden Girl with jokes, stories, and of course, musical numbers! Plus, she even gets a beautiful birthday cake made by Betty Crocker, who was also celebrating HER 90th birthday.
