There are thousands of causes being taunted on Facebook, and now TV fans have one especially close to their heart. More than 200,000 people are urging “Saturday Night Live” to let Betty White host the show via the fan page, Betty White To Host SNL…Please?
The campaign has caught the attention of the media and has already been covered by NPR, The AP, People and The New York Times. The 88-year-old actress’ popularity has only grown in recent weeks after she won a lifetime achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and was featured in a hugely popular Super Bowl commercial.
Fans on the Facebook page think White would be a “fantastic” host and commenters seem to think it would be a way to honor the actress who is already well respected for her long career. One commenter said, “THIS WOULD BE AN AWESOME SHOW!!!!!!!”, while another is already planning the Golden Girls sketch.
Representatives for White have had no comment and it is unknown if she would even be interested in appearing on the show.
NBC has also had no comment.
