You Win, Internet: Betty White To Host 'Saturday Night Live'

Betty WhiteFacebook fans, your plan has worked: Betty White has confirmed that she's going to host 'Saturday Night Live.'

There's no word yet on when she will host or under what circumstances, but White tells People that she is indeed going to host the show. She says she "doesn't know why or how, but it's been wonderful."

There was talk that because of her age (she's 88), she would be a part of a "Women of Comedy" episode of 'SNL,' but producer Lorne Michaels says that's not true.

It's about time for someone new and fresh to be a host on SNL. I'm betting that she'll be able to handle anything they throw at her and not do it with a lack of creativity and good taste that I think has been lacking for some time - you go girl!

Betty, you rock! I have not watched SNL in years. But I WILL watch the one you host. And as Glynspsa said: "It will be the highest rated SNL in a long time". You go show them how it's done!!!

Go Betty, GO! This lady has kept millions of people laughing. She is a jewel and I hope she continues for a very long time yet, making us laugh and be happy. I have watched her a very long time, even from Password with her then husband. They were both very well welcomed by everyone who watched that show. And since then I have watched her on all of her shows and of course The Golden Girls show is still on and can be watched every night.
