This week in Betty

 
 

Don’t be scared — the musicians who created the love-it-or-loathe-it theme for The L Word aren’t back. But we do have some news about the best of all Bettys, Betty White.

On the heels of her awesome Snickers commercial and the announcement that White indeed will host Saturday Night Live comes word that she will guest star in the season finale of The Middle. White will play the school librarian who gets after Brick for having so many overdue books. Brick, played by Atticus Shaffer, is the only one on the show who could possibly go toe-to-toe with Betty.

ABC’s press release calls White a “social media sensation” — a reference to the Facebook campaign that resulted in her SNL appearance. Almost 500,000 fans joined the campaign. Look out, Ashton, she’s coming for you.

I’m not a huge fan of The Middle, but usually half-watch it because it shares an hour with Modern Family. On May 8, however, I will be glued to the set to see the remarkable Ms. White. Will you?
