Not sure who did the writing for her, but IMHO, they did a great job.

Risque dialogue and topics. Did she really say the F-word in the Macgrubber trailer spoof?

Betty White has been around the block a few times...
I'm sure she knows what all those words mean.

Neat Lady from every interview I've ever seen.

Betty White in Lake Placid still makes me howl with laughter.

I thought Betty did good.

Wow the talent on the show is talentless.

Wow most of the writers suck - though the monologue was good and the census skit was fine.

NBC needs to fire everybody involved with the show and start over.

Last night's show was the best overall in a long time (which admittedly is not saying much)- largely because Betty White, unlike most of the current cast, knows how to deliver a punchline without looking like she's reading it off a prompter. That, and she was in virtually every sketch. And almost every commercial.

Still, what they wrote for her was largely one trick- having her play the foul mouthed old lady. Ultimately, cheap gags aimed at the lowest common denominator.

Having said that, I did laugh. I wouldn't quite call the "muffin" sketch "classic," but it was well written and performed.

Nice to see the Alumna as well. I wondered whatever happened to Ana Gasteyer

She originated the role of Elphaba in Wicked here in Chicago a few years ago and played the role on Broadway as well. She was fantastic but I would have loved to see Idina Menzel perform it.

I always liked Maya Rudolph and was so happy to see her, too!
