Her TV Land sitcom earned a second season pickup. Her hosting job on "Saturday Night Live" just helped the episode score six Emmy nominations. She's even a calendar pin-up girl (at 88).

So what's next for Betty White? A visit to NBC's "Community." White will guest star on the sitcom's Sept. 23 sophomore season premiere. She'll play June Bauer, an esteemed, albeit slightly unhinged, anthropology professor.

White's appearance is sure to give a boost to the well-liked comedy series, which will most likely premiere this fall against CBS' top-rated "The Big Bang Theory," which is moving from Monday to Thursday nights.

TAMBLYN JOINS 'HOUSE'

Amber Tamblyn is joining Fox's "House." Tamblyn, the former "Joan of Arcadia" star, will play a brilliant medical student who joins Dr. House's team although she's not yet certified to practice medicine. She then must deal with the ethically questionable ways that the good doctor (played by Hugh Laurie) practices medicine. The hire helps fill the void left by Olivia Wilde who's taking a break from the show while shooting her movie, "Cowboys & Aliens." The seventh season of "House" gets under way Sept. 20.
