    I've always liked Betty White. I think it would be awesome for her to host SNL.

    It's official! Special Mother's Day show with former cast members. That should lighten the load for her.

    Betty White to Host SNL May 8th

    I really hope they do a MTM skit. Her Sue Ann Nivens character was one of the funniest in the history of TV.

    Brilliant work.

    She's the kind of old bitty that I would go for if I were 60 years older or she were 60 years younger.. Though she completely crushed the clean, innocent sweet loving perception I had of her (My first intro to her was Rose on the Golden Girls). But now.. she's great!

    3 words to describe the show: Wizard of Ass. :D

    BL.

    Best SNL in a long, long time. She did a great job and had me laughing out loud many times. I was impressed that she was in so many skits especially since you had all the returning cast members on too. Betty White is a national treasure.

    Brilliant work. First time SNL has been great in years.

    Although I really think they missed an opportunity with Tina Fey being on there as well. Fey as Palin at a townhall or teabagger protest with Betty White playing the stereotypical racist old white lady you see at those things. That would've been hillarious.

    Betty was brilliant!
    I loved the line: "Ascertain??? Oh, that was my stripper name."
    LMAO :D

    Betty White was showing old-school comedy skillz. She was great.

    Betty White is dirty! I loved it.

    What about when she was the knitting Grandma talking about her lesbian grandchild? "Balls." :D:D:D

    I about fell out my chair!

    Yuck

    I really did not like the episode, I actually stopped watching about forty minutes through...

    It seemed like they were just running with the same old (pun?) gag all night, the "cute old lady saying dirty things" and the humor was lost on me after the first two skits.

    She is an awesome lady, but I feel SNL dropped the ball on this one :eek:

    Agreed. I'm disappointed that she stooped to their adolescent level.

    If you've seen any of the roasts she's been a part of, you'd know she's plenty adolescent all by herself.

    Great show, btw.

    Yeah, I felt that way a couple of times during the show. Overall, I did enjoy most of it.
