Betty White Gets New 'SNL' Promos, GSN Marathon (VIDEO)

Betty WhiteAs the date for Betty White's hosting gig on 'Saturday Night Live' comes ever closer (May 8th), NBC is releasing more promos featuring the grande dame of television.

In the first promo, similar to one mentioned here earlier this week, Betty addresses rumors that have her dating Zac Efron. Apparently, as the camera pans around the room, those rumors are totally false. In the second promo, Ms. White wonders if her 'SNL' gig will lead to bigger and better hosting duties for, perhaps, the Academy Awards. To that end, she enlists a trio of computer nerds to fan the Internet rumor flames.


To commemorate Betty's appearance on 'SNL', GSN will offer up a 'Match Game' marathon featuring her appearances as semi-regular panelist. The 'Match Game' marathon will air next Saturday, from 8AM until 4PM.

Hello? GSN. the network formerly long-named as
Game Show Network. Betty White has guest-starred
and even hosted several other game shows besides
Match Game. There's also the Pyramid, Password.
Password Plus, Super Password. Win Lose Or Draw,
Trivia Trap, Tattletales, the list goes on and on.
Just because GSN no longer hold the rights to
air some of these shows. doesn't mean GSN just
can't air them at all, even if say, Charlie O'Donnell
(who will be 81 years young by the time Wheel
Of Fortune's current contract ends with him) were
to suddenly pass on. If he did, we'd lose the most
beloved announcer in 50 years, without GSN even
acknowledging his death with a single marathon
on his game show announcing legacy. Something
has to be done to bring all the classics back to GSN.
