Just had to say… if you haven’t seen SNL from this week with Betty White, you should.  I think it’s the best episode of SNL ever.

Yeah, I said it.

Basically, the atmosphere was that SNL decided to throw a big party for everyone.  We asked for Betty White, we got it.  And lots of people came back to support the effort and celebrate.  And they even brought in one of the biggest pop stars in the world, Jay-Z, and let him run with like a 10-minute medley before Weekend Update.  All of the writers stepped up, and there wasn’t a bad sketch all night.  Even in the sketch time slots that you know are traditionally weak, like the one right after Weekend Update.  That one was good.  And the one right before the sad piano music, that lets you know the show is ending — you know, the one that you already knew would suck, but you watched because, aahhh fuck it, you’ve already watched almost the entire episode, you may as well just watch the last one too — you know, that one?  Even that one was good.

And… I hate to say it… even MacGruber was good.  Now, I know what you’re thinking… “Somebody actually made a fucking MacGruber movie?!?  Seriously?!?”  Because I’m thinking it too.

But… oh yeah, where were we? Betty White… yeah, she was amazing, and it was the best SNL of all time.  Really.  It was.

And if you don’t want to watch the whole thing, at least watch her talk about her muffin.
