Vintage Betty White

Unless you've been living in a cave, you already know Betty White is hosting SNL this weekend. (Please say you do!) To get you in the mood, our friends at GSN (Game Show Network) gave us an exclusive video they put together to salute the “Best of Betty White” from her classic appearances on Match Game. GSN will be showing a Betty White Marathon on Saturday, May 8—just hours before White makes her first-ever appearance as host of Saturday Night Live. The seven-hour, 14-episode marathon will spotlight the brilliant comedic timing that has earned White 18 Emmy nominations and six wins over the course of her career. So be sure to tune in from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. (ET). Meantime, enjoy these hilarious scenes!

@Clotho, part of the reason it's a big deal is because it was a grassroots campaign to get her to host. i think, but i'm not sure, that lorne had always rebuffed the suggestion of her hosting.

that, and they're bringing back a bunch of the women who've left, you know, back when it was still pretty funny. tina fey, rachel dratch, maya rudolph, i think cheri oteri's going to be on there. so, hopefully it'll be a step up from what it's been.

I still don't get what the big deal is about Betty White hosting SNL. On a list of all her accomplishments, I would think hosting SNL would be toward the bottom. SNL's just not that funny, and has a habit of inviting people to host based on their current popularity, not their comedic talent. All in all, it seems like a step down for Betty

Dear David,

I didn't know Betty White is hosting SNL this week-end. But I don't live in a cave -- I'm that guy you heard about once, back in high school, when they taught you about planet Earth. Yes, you guessed it: you're fortunate enough to be read by the guy living on the other continent generally known as Back There.

Kind regards from Back Here,
The Different Continent Guy
