- 1Up 18Down 0Betty White is officially the oldest person ever to host 'Saturday Night Live.' After a Facebook campaign prompted 'SNL' to extend a hosting invitation, viewers rejoiced when White agreed.
Betty White graced the 'SNL' stage during the show's 35th season, on May 8, 2010, delivering a hilarious monologue, remarking that, "It's great to be here for a number of reasons." She also explains that now that she knows what Facebook is, she thinks it seems like a big waste of time. Great stuff from the classiest, funniest lady working in TV today!

- 3Up 12Down 2Christopher Walken has hosted 'SNL' a total of 7 times. On April 5, 2008, Walken was 65 years old when he walked out to deliver his opening 'Saturday Night Live' monologue. The show itself was packed with great skits, including "Surprise Party," with a hysterically funny, and really excitable Kristen Wiig. "Clowns!"
- 4Up 10Down 1On February 11, 1995, Bob Newhart hosted 'Saturday Night Live.' At the time, Newhart was 65 years old. This was Newhart's second turn as an 'SNL' host (the first came in 1980). The 1995 episode was packed with goodness, including a parody of the 'Newhart' skit - where he wakes in bed with Emily and swears that he just dreamed he hosted 'Saturday Night Live.'
Trivia: Bob Newhart is current 'SNL' cast member Paul Brittain's uncle.
- 5Up 10Down 2Dame Helen Mirren was 65 years old when she hosted 'SNL' for the first time on April 9, 2011. And she was fabulous. So were her breasts, which were groped repeatedly by 'SNL' cast members Kristen Wiig and Nasim Pedrad in the 'SNL' digital short "Helen Mirren's Magical Bosom." Oh, and she totally makes out as Eleanor Roosevelt with Abby Elliott's Marilyn Monroe.
