Heaven. I'm In Heaven.....


It looks like that grassroots [read: Facebook] campaign to get our Golden Girl Betty White to host Saturday Night Live may have paid off.
Apparently Lorne Michaels and SNL are ready to Betty.
As am I.
But there is a catch--though it could be fun.
Betty wouldn't host alone. Supposedly SNL is going to do a “Women of Comedy” episode that would team the former Rose Nylund-Sue Ann Nivens with a few of her younger contemporaries. Former SNL'er, Molly Shannon is rumored to be on board, and there is talk of both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler might join the fun.
This, um, well, tag-team of comedians will allow SNL to make those of us on the Get Betty On SNL Facebook page 9allegedly 500K+] happy, without making Betty, 88-years-young and quite the pistol, carry the entire show on her own.
Go Betty!

SNAP! I love the pix of Betty shooting that gun! She's a pistol-packin' mama alright.

I would go to pieces if Betty were to host SNL. I think it would be their highest rated show EVER! If anything, she could just do an unannounced walk-on during one of the skits. I'm sure the audience would just fall apart with excitement.

She is totally awesome, I think SNL with the ladies of comedy sounds great -- bring on Carol Burnett and Mary Tyler Moore!
