NBC has announced plans to air the special ‘Celebrating Betty White: America’s Golden Girl’ on Monday, Jan. 31 at 10/9c. White passed away on Dec. 31 at the age of 99 — just a few weeks shy of her 100th birthday.
Celebrating Betty White: America’s Golden Girl will see friends and stars celebrate the TV legend and animal rights advocate throughout the special. The hour-long tribute will feature curated clips that encapsulate White’s “irreverent tone, spirit and impeccable comedic timing that are a hallmark of her decades-long career.” After airing on NBC on 1/31, the program will be available to stream on Peacock the following day.
White was an Emmy, Grammy and SAG Award winner. Her list of acting credits include roles on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1973-77), The Golden Girls (1985-92) and Hot in Cleveland (2010-15). White also appeared on the big screen in films like Lake Placid (1999) and The Proposal (2009), and will be remembered as a tireless advocate for animals.
