Women of SNL Reunite for Betty White (Video)Author: Jon Martin | Saturday, May 8th, 2010 |
Betty White guest stars on SNL and she brings the heat, watch some highlights from one of the best SNL’s of the decade. As the last surviving member of the Golden Girls, Betty White is a class act. Not only did White host but she brought the former SNL women to help her. Everyone’s favorite octogenarian hosted SNL tonight, in what was probably one of the best episodes of all time. It all started with the opening sketch:
Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch and Molly Shannon all returned to get the show off to a great start. Not that Betty needed any help. She’s a real class act, her opening monologue was like an old-time opening, nothing offensive or stupid, just funny jokes and great delivery. While I watch, all I can think is how this woman is 88 and 1/2 years old and she’s up there dancing around with people half her age.
Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon jumped right back into their roles in their Delicious Dish sketch. The sketch was so on-point and perfectly executed. I thought the jokes would seem tired because it’s obvious what the sketch is about but the writers really seemed to pull it together. When Molly Shannon looks at the camera and says “Your muffin just squirted in my mouth” it is just surreal, one of the best SNL sketches of the decade and better than “schweaty balls”. Bravo
Towards the end of the episode Fey popped up in a few sketches and also guest-starred in weekly update. It was Ok. The Census Worker sketch made up for it though.
They sent off Betty in a great way at the end by giving her flowers. She did a terrific job and I really hope she hosts again.
All in all, a great episode. I don’t see how Alec Baldwin can top it but I’m sure he’ll have the entire 30 rock crew to help him. Next week’s finale is going to be BOMB(that means good), that’s what the kids are saying these days, or so I’ve heard… Look it up. Update: Check out these clips from the dress rehearsal that never made the air. The first is a Debbie Downer sketch starring Rachel Dratch.
