NBC to Air Betty White Birthday Special

America’s love affair with Betty White continues.  The Golden Girl will be getting her very own 90 minute special on NBC on January 16 in celebration of her 90th birthday. What can viewers expect?

At least part of the program will be styled as a dinner party with White’s co stars from Hot in Cleveland and The Mary Tyler Moore Show scheduled to attend.  A few of NBC’s leading ladies are also set for surprise appearances so fingers crossed for a Tina Fey cameo.  The pair are set to go up against each other for the Grammy Award for Best Audio Book which could lead to some funny banter.

The network will also be previewing White’s upcoming hidden camera show Off Their Rockers, which sounds like Punk’d but with the geriatric set pulling pranks on unsuspecting youngins.  There will also no doubt be plenty of dirty jokes told with old person faux innocence. And no one is sick of that yet, right?
