Betty White leaves 'SNL' better than she finds it [poll]

May 10, 2010 |  9:09 am

Betty White gave "Saturday Night Live" its best ratings in 18 months on a show that also featured the music of Jay-Z or, as a deadpan White teased in a promo, "Jaze."

Seems all those folks on Facebook knew what they were talking about -- even if they did wind up as monologue fodder. And even though not everybody loved the material.

White's monologue is above; to see a skit from dress rehearsal that didn't make the final broadcast, visit our friends over at Show Tracker. After the jump, experience video of Betty's legendary muffin -- the double entendres are beyond terrific.

The 88-year-old appeared in every sketch Saturday night -- check them out here, or watch the full show if you missed it.

Don't miss that muffin after the break ...

-- Christie D'Zurilla
