Betty White can thank Facebook for getting her on Saturday Night Live! For weeks now there’s been a movement to get the funny lady on the SNL stage as a host.
The Facebook fan page reads: “Betty White has been doing television since before I Love Lucy!. What a way to honor her career, her comedic timing and her life than by inviting her to host Saturday Night Live!!!” And it looks like the lobbying has paid off.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show is putting together a special “Women of Comedy” episode that will feature Betty, as well as SNL alums Molly Shannon, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
NBC execs are staying hush-hush at this point, but this news comes on the heels that Fey is bringing back the Sarah Palin bit. Last week she told the Associated Press that she’d be reprising the role when she hosts in April. ``It's inevitable that we'll try it, at least,'' Fey said. ``We'll see if it makes it to air.''
Sounds like it’s a go! It’s amazing to see what can happen from having a few hundred thousand Facebook fans rooting for you!
