NBC Will Rerun “Saturday Night Live” with Betty White Tonight from 2010 as a Tribute


NBC will rerun “SNL” tonight with Betty White as host from 2010 as a tribute to the late great star.

At the time there was a petition signed by 1 million people to get her on the show. The monologue is below.

Betty was the oldest guest host of the show, and she pulled it off with aplomb.

Jay Z is the musical guest. The show aired May 8, 2010. Even if you can see it all on YouTube, tune in tonight so the ratings are high– a fitting memorial.

They want us to note this is real SNL at 11:30pm, not the rerun at 10pm.
