Betty White on Saturday Night Live Review

Some may consider this episode 'over-hyped' as people on Facebook helped Betty White host Saturday Night Live last night. It was a special Mother's day episode with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch. I think it was worth the wait! It definitely was great! One reviewer said that the writers didn't know what to do with her but I hate to admit it because it is kinda true. They used her as the 'grandma' like four times (opening sketch, Macgruber's grandma, Macintosh's grandma, and Gingey's grandma) and an old lady twice. It was nice to see the guest former castmembers in sketches. Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon returned to their mellow-voiced NPR Delicious Dish. Maya Rudolph got plenty of screen time as Whitney Houston on Weekend Update. Dratch didn't get much, just a CSI spoof with White. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey got to do "Really?" with Seth Meyers which was very poignant and funny. Tina Fey got the last sketch of the night with White. And I thought Jay-Z retired. Two 'retirees' that night.
