Saturday Night Live Is Typical, Moderately Funny, In Anniversary Special


Saturday Night Live Bradley Cooper Betty White Tina Fey

Saturday Night Live celebrated its 40th anniversary this past week. Congratulations! The verdict? It was good enough. Like many other SNL episodes, this one was a 50/50 deal - some of the jokes fell flat, while others got just a passing laugh. There were zingers, but we probably won't be recycling jokes Christopher Walken's "only perscription is more cowbell" in a couple of years.

Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen
Happy 40th, Saturday Night Live!

Though re-visiting old sketches and characters was a welcome bit of nostalgia, of course.  Tina Fey's Sarah Palin, holding a flute and wondering when the talent portion of the show would begin was a highlight. In the end, more often than not, the show was funny.

The series followed three entertainment industry veterans from Los Angeles (Bertinelli, Leeves and Malick) who escape Hollywood for the less shallow Cleveland, leasing a home from a sassy caretaker (played by White). It debuted on TV Land in 2010 to strong ratings, but has seen a steady decline in viewing numbers in recent years.

Is Scarlett a big fan of the NBC 80's classic sitcom?

The iconic show ran from 1985-92 and featured a group of elderly women sharing a house together in Miami, Florida. Rose Nylund was played by the incomparable Betty White, whils the late Bea Arthur played her best friend, Dorothy Zbornak. They were joined by Rue McClanahan as Blanche Devereaux and Estelle Getty as Sophia Petrillo, and were known across America for their love of cheesecake and heartwarming bond. The show lasted an impressive seven seasons, before it was ended when Bea Arthur announced she wished to leave the show. Nevertheless the show still has a cult following, and the last surviving Golden Girl, Betty White, is as big a part of American pop culture as ever, making frequent appearences in films and portraying the sassy caretaker Elka in TV Land's 'Hot in Cleveland'.

Betty White Did Not Die. But She Did Dye.


Betty White

Betty White is not dead - she is very much alive, and working, in-fact. Rumors of the veteran actress's death spread like wildfire across social media on Thursday (September 4, 2014) after some fans were duped by a satirical news story.

"Actress Betty White, 92, dyes peacefully in her Los Angeles home" read a headline published on the website Empire News. However, as suggested by the spelling, the story was a comedy article about White not being a natural blonde.

Relationship Speculation And Celebrity Parodies Keep Miley In The News For Yet Another Week


Miley Cyrus Betty White

Miley Cyrus kissed a man! That man was not Liam Hemsworth! Here we have the makings of a front page story already. Previous reports about the Wrecking Ball singer currently loving up a Rolling Stone photographer have been discredited to some extent by the new reports swirling around the singer’s love life, linking her to an unidentified male model, according to Life & Style. The two were reportedly spotted “getting cosy” – one of those non-committal terms used to define celebrity relationships – over the weekend at Bootsy Bellows in LA.

Apparently Miley makes news even when she isn't doing anything. 

Unconfirmed relationships aside, Miley’s career and public presence couldn’t be in a better place at the moment. They say you’re not really a celebrity, unless someone makes a parody of you, but having Betty White parody your music video must be an honor in and of itself. The Golden Girl recently spoofed Miley’s buzzworthy Wrecking Ball.

As Super Bowl 47 Approaches, What Are The Greatest Super Bowl Ads Of All-Time?


Michael Jordan Betty White

With Super Bowl 47 taking place this weekend, not all eyes are going to be on the action that's taking place on the field. As we all know by now, advertising departments Statewide often use the prime time television slots during the commercial breaks to air some of their funniest, most innovative stuff. The highly sought after slots go for millions, such is the guaranteed size of the audience who'll be tuning in to the game, which means that the companies need to give it everything they've got in order to lure in the customers. Here at Contactmusic, we thought we'd have a look over the history of the Super Bowl ad, and pick out ten of favorites of all time...

10. Monster.com – When I Grow Up (1999)

A slightly sad commercial that sees children telling us their dreams for when they grow up, except those dreams turn out to be dead-end jobs and positions of employment that they don’t want to do. Why? Because they didn’t go through Monster.com and potentially get the job they always DID want of course.

Happy Birthday Betty White! Golden Girl Turns 91


Betty White

Betty White is an inspiration. She turned 91 yesterday (17th Jan), and doesn't believe in retirement. She has been active in television and movies since 1939 (that's over seven decades) and is still going strong, plus she got a boa constrictor for her Birthday. What more could a woman beyond octogenarian-ism want? 

She currently presents her own show 'Betty White's Off Their Rockers' and still appears in the comedy series 'Hot in Cleveland'. She's had two shows named after her, both called The Betty White Show, the first in 1954, and another in 1979, the first a talk show and the latter a sitcom. However, she's best known now for her role in The Golden Girls, which ran from 1985-92 playing a 'naïve senior citizen' named Rose. 

Her infectious good humour seems to have kept her young. Last year she spoke to the Huffington Post about what it meant to be 90, she told them: "I'm having the time of my life and the fact that I'm still working -- how lucky can you get? I'm 90 years old and able to do what I do. That's a privilege."
