To the joy of the Internets, Betty White hosts this week’s Saturday Night Live.

When it was announced there was plenty of smack talk about how she’s destined to have the best ratings of the season. Robert pronounced that idea “Goofy”.

Here are the top 3 rated SNL’s this season for reference:

Charles Barkley (NFL Wild Card game lead-in) 4.4 adults 18-49 rating

Jennifer Lopez (Olympics lead-in) 3.6 adults 18-49 rating

Tina Fey/Justin Bieber (standard NBC Saturday lead in) 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.

I’ll guess Betty matches Tina Fey / Justin Bieber with a 3.3 rating. Sir Charles’ rating is completely safe.

Betty White fans (and others) can give us their best shot at guessing Betty’s ratings in the comments.

Here’s Betty’s promo video to whet your appetite.
