After the recent late night debacle at NBC, you would expect television viewers to be jaded and cynical.
…to assume that quality programming, talented performers and good ideas would be summarily rejected by the muckety-mucks at the highest echelons of the networks.
But then…a glimmer of hope appears.
A grassroots effort on Facebook not only gains thousands of fans — 486,139 as of this writing – but momentum and media and — awesome alliteration ahead — the motherlode!
Betty White is going to appear on “Saturday Night Live!”
Just when you thought that the powers-that-be in network TV had lost all sense of what was truly funny — versus what was mediocre and safe — the producers of SNL recognize the brilliance of the social media suggestion and get the grande dame of comedy herself to agree to the plan.
Only eating a Cheeto as I was typing this would make me happier (and my keyboard a mess).
Granted, the report didn’t confirm White would host the show, but I’m pretty sure we can push that through, too.
We are in charge now. Resistance is futile.
