Betty White set to host SNL

YES! Betty White has been confirmed as host of Saturday Night Live on May 8th. The Mother's Day episode also will feature a reunion of six former female cast members: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch.

SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels says he has "always wanted" White to host. "Years ago, I turned it down three times," White says. "It's so New York, and I'm not New York at all. "But my agent said he'd divorce me if I didn't do it, and I love my agent."

The "Betty White to Host SNL (please?)!" group on Facebook has attracted nearly half a million members.
It was her appearance in this Super Bowl ad that really started the frenzy to get her to host SNL.

We love you , Betty White!
Can't wait to see this episode of SNL!

I love this so much! She will be hilarious!

I also like the fact that Lorne Michaels listened to what the people want to see, as the recent show's hosts have been terrible!

Bahahaha. I like the Diva version of that commercial as well.

I am so watching this episode. I LOVE everyone mentioned. I think they'll need to make it a 3 hour thing. Just sayin. Mary Catherine Gallagher any one? Can we have our newscasters TF and AP again!? Oh Betty. I'm very happy now.
