    Betty White's 90th Birthday Celebration

    Is anyone else watching this? My bf and I are absolutely cracking up. Lots and lots of video of Betty's work and being done kind of in a roast style but not quite so mean and dirty. I love this, hope they do more in the future for other big stars.

    The clips remind you just how extensive her body of work is. Truly remarkable, and a truly remarkable woman.

    I missed it, but got to meet her back in May, so that's good enough for me!

    Mom and Dad and I watched it tonight and just about killed ourselves laughing at the clips. Good memories all of them.

    What a great way to celebrate a great lady and US National Treasure.

    Happy 90th Betty!!

    Betty White is absolutely wonderful and so funny. And they had a great variety of clips and presenters. I thought the show was really good.

    I stumbled on it about 20 minutes into the broadcast and was hooked! Very classy and funny - just like Betty

    I don't know if NBC puts episodes online and if they do, I don't know if they put specials like these online, but check their website out.

    I thought it was excellent. So funny and so nice to see all the old comedians!!

    Aside -- Was anyone else shocked to see Mary Tyler Moore? They would not bring the camera in close on her and I thought her vision was definitely not good. Very sad to see.

    Mary Tyler Moore looked very very fragile. Her speech was strained and she could not move well but they tried their best to edit her in the best way, which was nice.

    Mary Tyler Moore has type I diabetes, which has affected her eyesight. I think she also had some additional health problems, which made things worse.

    Looks like quite a few people tuned in too:

    NBC scores too with Betty White specials; CBS tops

    At NBC on Monday, the 90-minute special "Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl'' averaged a prelim 2.7 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 13.9 million viewers overall, placing third in demos and first in total viewers; in fact, it was the most-watched program on the night and provided the Peacock with its largest audience from 8 to 9:30 p.m. on a Monday (excluding the Olympics) since February 2008. That audience mostly stuck around at 9:30 p.m. for the preview episode of hidden-camera series "Betty White's Off Their Rockers'' (prelim 2.6/6 in 18-49, 12.2 million).

    We were wondering if Mary hadn't suffered a stroke recently/last couple of years by her way of speaking. I also noticed her right (?) eye looked bloody looking. Both Mom and I also knowing she's Type 1, we put two and two together and came up w/just feeling so sad to see Mary looking so fragile the other night.

    So happy the Production Team shot Mary in the best way they could and in turn, letting Mary have her dignity. Still so sad to see Mary looking in such poor health on Monday though.
