Well, it's official: NBC's "Community," which has gradually grown a devoted fanbase over the past year, has finally arrived. Betty White will be guest-starring on the show when it returns in the fall.
Just about everything White has touched lately has turned into gold ("Hot in Cleveland," anyone?), and "Community" could certainly use the ratings boost as it faces off against CBS' hit "The Big Bang Theory" for the first time.
White will play a professor on the show, and if the other educators at Greendale Community College are any indication, her character will probably be more than a little eccentric.
At this point, a network should probably just give White her own talk show - we know we'd watch. What other up-and-coming comedies are in need of a Betty White cameo?
