If you stormed Rockefeller Center to demand that Betty White host SNL, then you probably looked like a lone asshole out there by yourself, because everybody else made their plea by joining the “Betty White 4 SNL” Facebook group. And if you are one of the many that joined, then get ready to give yourself a congratulatory finger bang, because Betty White is really close to hosting SNL. Actually, get ready to give yourself half of a congratulatory finger bang (just to the knuckle), because Betty White will not host the show alone. How do they say “fuckery” in St. Olaf?
Michael Ausiello over at EW has it on good authority that Lorne Michaels has heard the cries of the Betty White movement and will sign her to co-host SNL’s “Women of Comedy” episode. Apparently, Lorne isn’t sure that 88-year-old Betty White can handle an entire show by herself, so he’s gathering other ladies to help her out. Molly Shannon is ready to join Betty, and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have both been asked.
Lorne is totally underestimating the power of Betty White! Betty isn’t going to fall asleep mid-show, or leave to catch the tail end of a Matlock episode she’s already seen a dozen times. NO! Betty has the stamina of Kirstie Alley at the buffet. Betty can do anything.
I guess this is better than nothing, but I’m still going to flip Lorne off St.Olaf-style like Betty White is in the picture above.
