Betty White Slays ‘Em On “Saturday Night Live”
Hey, did you catch Betty White hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend? There was a lot of hype surrounding this episode, so much so that it seemed almost important that Betty could live up to everyone’s expectations — but as far as I’m concerned, she did. Supported by some of the most beloved female cast members from “SNL”‘s recent past (Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, and Rachel Dratch, amongst others), the ratings for the episode — featuring musical guest Jay-Z — were the highest they’ve been in 14 months and the cast and crew gave Betty a standing ovation and presented her with flowers at the end of the show. It’s no wonder; Betty appeared in nearly every single sketch that aired during the live show, a feat not even younger hosts are asked to attempt — and that’s not including a handful of other skits that were performed during dress rehearsal but didn’t make the cut for the live show. Luckily, Hulu has those skits, which you can watch here. But before you do that, re-watch (or watch for the first time if you were crazy enough to miss it) Betty appearing alongside Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer in their NPR-spoofing sketch “Delicious Dish,” discussing her amazing, um, muffins.
