Idols | Betty White @ Saturday Night Live

Idols | Betty White @ Saturday Night Live on Hot Topics --- Idols | Betty White @ Saturday Night Live. On Saturday, after more than 70 years in show business, six Emmy Awards and one improbable Facebook campaign, Betty White finally got her shot at hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

Betty White, whose appearance on "Saturday Night Live" on May 8 was the result of a Facebook petition for the beloved 88-year-old actress to host the show, showed why she's got such a loyal fan base.

The Mother’s Day-themed episode, which brought back Ms. Shannon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer, was also a rare occasion on which the mostly male “SNL” cast took a backseat to its women: Ms. Shannon and Ms. Gasteyer got to bring back their bone-dry NPR parody, “Delicious Dish”; Ms. Rudolph made a return appearance as Whitney Houston and Ms. Poehler was temporarily re-seated at the “Weekend Update” desk. Just don’t look for series regulars Jenny Slate, Abby Elliott or Nasim Pedrad, who were largely shut out of the show. (When even Ms. Fey, the “30 Rock” star and former “SNL” head writer, can only be featured in a couple of skits, you know you’ve got an overabundance of talent.)

According to a press release from NBC, the veteran actress will go through the Studio 8H to make guest speaker (they call “host”) at a time curious, as it will be the week of Mother’s Day, when more than perfect for an actress to which we consider as one of the mothers of the play because of his role in ‘The Golden Girls. ”

So far NBC has not said whether he’ll be accompanied by other actresses or will not act alone. I opted for the former as was rumored, but I guess until they close their agreements may not say anything else. Anyway, the good news is that, we can see a legendary actress Betty White as an even more mythical as ‘Saturday Night Live’.
