More than 188,000 people on Facebook are urging "Saturday Night Live" to make Betty White a host. The campaign has been gaining followers and attention, just as the 88-year-old actress has become more ubiquitous. She was given a lifetime achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and starred in a Super Bowl commercial for Snickers that has ranked as one of the game's most popular.

The Facebook page, which isn't affiliated with White, says she would be a "fantastic" host and that it would be a terrific way to honor her.

Representatives for White said she had no comment. NBC is also not commenting.
