Betty White to Host Tonight's SNL's Mothers Day Special

Tonight, 5/8/2010, Betty White will be the host of Saturday Night Live. The musical guest will be Jay-Z, and all the former female cast members of the last decade or so are set to make guest appearences (think Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, etc.) in an star-packed episode dedicated to Mothers Day. But that is not what makes this great. This is all a result of an online push to get White named as host of the long running show. A Facebook page was started, putting forth the crazy idea to have the 86 year old actress as a host, and it snowballed. After the popularity of her Snickers commercial during this years Super Bowl, people got behind the idea of everybodies favorite Golden Girl hosting... even when she had second thoughts about it. Lorne Michaels saw how many people wanted to see this happen, so he made the executive decisions that lead to tonights show. Tune in, because I am sure this episode is going to be one of the classics... Show starts at 11:30... enjoy!!!
