Yes, and it's great. I especially enjoyed the Lawrence Welk sketch.

[quote=LittleRickyII]I was thinking about that last night. She's got some amazing stamina. And obviously she's not suffering dementia. And no senior moments from her last night! She delivered every line with perfection. She's absolutely remarkable.

Isn't it unusual for a guest host to appear in every skit? They certainly got their money's worth from her, putting her in all of them. And there are actually two additional skits that she was in that were not included in the actual broadcast last night. One is a Bronx Beat skit and the other is a Debbie Downer. They're both posted on nbc.com. I'm a little confused by them, though, as they were taped in front of the studio audience. When would they have been performed, right after the regular show (which would have been after 1:00 AM)?

(To ZKS: Thanks for posting about the ratings. It's terrific she drew such a big audience, and viewers were not disappointed!)[/QUOTE they were done in dress reharisal wich are always taped]

Oh, thanks for explaining. I was worried they kept her up after 1:00 AM to do those two sketches, as if she hadn't done enough already!

And I forgot to add:I also seldom-if ever-watch SNL.This one was different,however.And maybe-but I doubt it--SNL will get high-caliber guests.

SNL does two shows every Saturday -- a live dress rehearsal with a live audience from 8-10PM, then the live show at 11:30 with a different live audience. They always film both shows.

The purpose of the live dress rehearsal is is to determine which sketches aren't working and which ones are. The ones that aren't are either cut or re-written.

From 10-11:30, the show is re-written and tweaked one last time. The order of sketches is also changed.

In fact, many times in reruns, a dress rehearsal version of a sketch is substituted for the live, aired version if they feel it's better.

.....and now I find out they do a whole 2- hour dress rehearsal with a live audience earlier in the day, plus there was an after show party, plus Betty went to some gala during the week, how in the world does she do it???? Betty is beyond amazing!!!!

I got exhausted just reading that post. I couldn't keep up with Betty White. And I'm not joking, either!
