Ever since the Facebook campaign to have Betty White host “Saturday Night Live” worked, new groups keep popping up calling for her to host the Oscars as well as make appearances on “Dancing with the Stars” and “Glee.” Personally, I like the idea of our favorite “Golden Girl” doing battle with Sue Sylvester on “Glee.” But I’d rather not see her on “Dancing with the Stars”—going on that show is basically an admission that you are a washed-up celeb that no one cares about.

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.
