Betty White to Host SNL with Fellow Comediennes

Golden Girls star Betty White has almost signed on the dotted line to host an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

EW‘s Michael Ausiello reports the TV legend won’t be doing it alone though.

SNL is putting together a “Women of Comedy” episode that would team White with SNL MVPs like Molly Shannon, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

WOULD YOU tune in to watch SNL’s “Women of Comedy” episode — YAY or NAY?

    Do they plan to be funny? or just mock and ridicule other women?

    about time they let people with no mind control host the SNL.

  • sandra

    come on everybody! tina’s great! amy too! i’m def gonna be watching this!

  • mj

    I love Betty and Tina. It’s probably a bit much to expect an 88 year old woman to shoulder all of the host duties for 90 minutes. I’m glad they are doing it this way.

  • ml

    I would like to see Betty White and Sandra Bullock as the guest hosts. I wouldn’t like to see Tina Fey back in SNL. Some of the comediennes are not funny as Betty. If this is true, I probably won’t watch it. I don’t know why they come up the idea like that. I guess this is SNL doing it.

  • dfdf

    once I saw tin with mickey mouse ears, that sealed the deal for me.

  • Rhonda

    I heard that Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck want to write and star on a SNL! That would be a ratings bonanza, but you have to think just like all the hollywood people to be on SNL!

    SNL hasn’t been funny in so long! It would be good if they could shake it up but they won’t if your politics doesn’t agree with theirs! just a fact!

  • Me

    Eh, it’d be better with just Betty. Gee, four ladies—can anyone say Golden Girls sketch??

  • Becca

    Sounds AWESOME! SNL has been on sort of a roll recently, with the Jon Hamm episode especially. I watch or DVR every episode, but I’d ESPECIALLY make sure to watch this one.

  • bananas foster

    If they HAVE to do this co-hosting thing, they need to make it clear that these other co-hosts are Betty’s bitches and not the other way around! Betty White is nobody’s bitch!

  • nice!!!


  • Saudia

    Omg tht should be amazing! Can’t wait :)

  • meh

    Yes! Betty White is awesome.

  • Kate


  • Holly

    Sure would. Oh and I loved Molly back in her SNL days. And Tina and Amy were awesome.

  • Toronto

    Will be mucho pissed if Lyndsey Vonn hosts b4 BETTY WHITE does!

  • ck

    They mentioned that at 88 years old, it would be too much for Betty to host alone.

  • she shall remain nameless

    Can’t wait…this is gonna be great!!!

  • Betty + Molly + Tina + Amy =

    AWESOME!!! I would watch all four of these women host individually and wouldn’t miss the chance to watch all of them together. Great news!

    Also, I would love to see Betty White in a Digital Short.

  • lakers fan in boston

    i dont get why every1 is saying they want betty white on SNL
    couldnt she just have asked or was she kicked off the show, i just dont get it
    i hope tina does her sarah palin impersonation

  • Adam

    People still watch this show? It has not been funny for over 10 years.

  • Sally

    Why do we have to Amy Poehler? I’d watch if it was Tina Fey,Molly Shannon,and Betty White,I’ll probably still watch.

  • ml

    I wouldn’t watch SNL. It might be a rumor. The spokeperson at NBC for SNL that they are not making any comment. Betty White may not do SNL because she doesn’t fix in with SNL and doesn’t like how the writers do their work. SNL wanted to put “Women of Comedy” and use Tina Fey, for example. If it does happened, the SNL TV rating still will go down. Tina Fey is a worse comedienne. And SNL say that White is just too old to do this alone and they might need a little help from her? If I was Betty, she should turn them down for the fourth times. “Betty White, the SNL Campaign” shouldn’t be in the Facebook in the first place and it is getting worse. They ought to be going away by now.

    Nice gums Molly Shannon. Also Rhonda, why don’t you just fuk off and die. Men are allowed to “mock and ridicule” other men but when women do it then they’re going evil biitches.
