Following the success of Betty White’s SNL hosting gig, bookers at NBC might be hoping to have another senior moment.

And while it would be tough to top White’s digs at Facebook, double entendres about her muffin and her racy kiss with MacGruber, Hollywood has more than its fair share of women who are over 60 and up for the job.

In fact, a Carol Burnett Facebook campaign has sprung up – it worked for Betty, after all. But as The New York Times points out, Burnett should be in no rush. This coming weekend will bring the SNL season finale, to be hosted by Alec Baldwin.
