TELEVISION: At Long Bleepin’ Last! Betty White Does SNL May 8, 2010!

Yes, that’s right! On May 8, 2010, the First Lady of Television [60 years on TV!], Betty White makes her long overdue first appearance as guest host on Saturday Night Live!

Betty White

Best known as the perennially innocent Rose Nylund on Golden Girls and the scheming Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, White most recently stole The Proposal out from under Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds whenever she was onscreen.

Although it is not known what sketches the show’s writers will create for her, I, personally, hope at least one addresses her many game show appearances [where she showed herself to be a remarkable improviser] and another gives us a Rose Nylund who is closer to her off screen, ribald self.
