Dreams Can Come True…Betty White Hosting SNL

Facebook may be the source of many evils in our world – obsessive stalking, procrastination, continuous oversharing… but it has finally brought us something truly amazing. Due to the the overwhelming success of a facebook petition, Betty White will be hosting Saturday Night Live on Saturday, May 8.

In case you forgot, Betty White is 88. While most actors stop working after the age of 40, Betty has been on a hot streak recently, with buzzed-about roles in The Proposal, 30 Rock, and Ugly Betty. However, more relevant to SNL has been White’s almost ubiquitous presence on the talk show circuit. In the past year, she has been on Lopez Tonight, Chelsea Lately, The Tonight Show (with Jay Leno), Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and semi-talk show Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List.

So, what can we expect from Betty’s appearance on SNL? A Golden Girls skit? Most definitely. But who is worthy enough to inherit the mantle of Dorothy, Sofia, and Blanche? Kristen Wiig? Andy Samberg? When you mess with perfection, you better get it right.
