  1. I do, too! Those commercials are awesome! I know there have been several Facebook campaigns to get Betty White hosting SNL. IMO, her being the host would literally be a flood of potential skits. From Golden Girls to Mary Tyler Moore and the movies she's been in. I would love to see a Golden Girls skit!
     
  2. I would actually watch SNL again to see her host!
     
  3. Yay for Rose! I am a bit obsessed with the Golden Girls :P
     
  4. I have to admit, I've pretty much given up on SNL nowadays. But if they could get Betty White on there, I would definitely tune in.
     
  5. Wow, I wonder what their ratings would be cause she really is one of America's Sweethearts!
     
  6. i really hope this happens and she hosts SNL!!

    (PEOPLE.com) -- Betty White fans, your prayers have been answered. The former "Golden Girl" will appear on "Saturday Night Live" in the near future, she confirmed to PEOPLE at Elton John's annual Oscars viewing party on Sunday night.

    Fans have been clamoring for White, 88, to do "SNL" -- an idea she called "ridiculous" just a few weeks ago -- ever since her comic turn in a Snickers ad during the Super Bowl. One Facebook page devoted to the cause has attracted half a million fans.

    When asked by PEOPLE, "Are you doing 'Saturday Night Live'?" she answered, "Yes," even if she remains perplexed by the groundswell of support.

    "I don't know why or how," she says, "but it's been wonderful."

    White didn't offer any details about the "SNL" gig, and it remains unclear when she will appear -- or what it will entail.

    Entertainment Weekly said she might appear on a special "Women of Comedy" episode with former "SNL" cast members Molly Shannon, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler -- but executive producer Lorne Michaels reportedly denied that.

    White's career resurgence hasn't come completely out of the blue. She did star with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in the romantic comedy "The Proposal," and was recognized with a lifetime achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild.
