The Hallmark Channel has announced it will be honoring Betty White with a special lineup of programming on January 17 – what would have been the iconic actress’ 100th birthday.
The network will air a marathon of “Golden Girls” kicking off at 12:00 am and featuring all of the best Rose Nylund moments played by the late actress. Then, get ready for a special presentation of the 2011 Hallmark Hall of Fame movie “The Lost Valentine” at 8 p.m. ET/PT, starring White and Jennifer Love Hewitt. The marathon resumes following the movie and concludes at 5 a.m. ET/PT on Tuesday, January 18.
The marathon includes specially selected episodes of “The Golden Girls” that highlight Rose’s surprising competitive streak; visits by her St. Olaf relatives; funny career moments from the grief center and assisting consumer reporter Enrique Mas; along with plenty of romance, including boyfriends Dr. Jonathan Newman, Mister Terrific and of course, Miles Webber.
How to Watch
In addition to watching some of Betty White’s best work, viewers can also get involved by participating in the #BettyWhiteChallenge and donating to their favorite animal shelter or charity. White was an avid animal lover and advocate, and Hallmark Channel has made a special donation to North Shore Animal League America in her honor.
