Yes, the 88 year old actress and comedian seemed a little nervous during her opening monologue. But she did a great job.
“I have so many people to thank for being here, but I really have to thank Facebook,” White said during her monologue.
“When I first heard about the campaign to get me to host Saturday Night Live, I didn’t know what Facebook was,” she said.
“And now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time.”
She went on to deadpan, “I would never say that people on it are losers, but that’s only because I’m polite.”
“Needless to say, we didn’t have Facebook when I was growing up. We had phone book … but you wouldn’t waste an afternoon on it.”
Also for the show, a bunch of former SNL cast members came back – including to of my favorites: Amy Poeher and Tina Fey.
I especially enjoyed Weekend Update’s Really?!? with Seth and Amy, which morphed into Really?!? with Seth, Amy and Tina by the end.
White held her own and displayed real comedic talent. I think my favorite character was MacGruber’s grandmother – who kept telling embarrasing stories about him. They fought a lot.
And then they got engaged in the end.
