TV’s Ever the Golden Girl

Betty White’s much-anticipated outing as a Saturday Night Live host – at last! – a couple of nights ago was met with deafening applause…and it delivered both quality and ratings.

In other words: It was a hit! Thanks, in no small measure, to the actress’ professionalism and enduring talent. And I have to say that bringing back several of the shows female MVPs – hey there, Maya Rudolph, Anna Gasteyer, and Rachel Dratch…so nice to see ya! – was a stroke of genius that guaranteed a night full of laughs. (
Jay-Z, you were pretty good, too.)

Especially memorable to me was the digital short tribute from the cast to B.W., to the tune of the Golden Girls’ theme song, “Thank You for Being a Friend”:

It just sums up the episode so nicely, and shows White at her gamest.
