Video: Betty White Brings the Ladies (and the Funny) to SNL

Betty White, you are a gem. I wasn't quite sure if your Saturday Night Live gig could live up to its hype, but boy did it, and then some. Not only was the show funny, it gave the late-night program its best ratings in 18 months!

With a little help from past SNL stars like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph, White was adorable, sweet, and a little dirty-minded — just how we love her. Fey and the rest of the alums brought back impressions like Sally O'Malley, the NPR Delicious Dish hosts, and Whitney Houston, and it reminded me of how good SNL can be. Yes, there were a ton of references to White's age — we get it, she's 88 and a half — but so many skits had me laughing. Which was your favorite? Personally, I can't choose, so check out these three (along with a very special unaired Debbie Downer!) when you read more.
