At the age of 88, who is the oldest person to host Saturday Night Live?
On May 8, 2010, 88-year-old actress Betty White became the oldest person ever to host Saturday Night Live. White’s hosting gig came about, in part, after hundreds of thousands of her fans signed onto a Facebook campaign rallying for it. As SNL’s eldest host, White earned glowing reviews, and the show, which featured musical guest Jay-Z, drew its highest ratings in 18 months. The octogenarian actress later won the seventh Emmy Award of her career for her SNL appearance.
