Another Beloved TV Personality in Bid to Host ‘SNL’ — And There’s an Audition Tape

Nov 24, 2010  •  Post A Comment

If Betty White can muster Facebook supporters to convince NBC’s "Saturday Night Live" to let her host the show, why not Cookie Monster? At least, that’s what the Sesame Workshop apparently is attempting with an audition tape for the cookie-obsessed blue Muppet, reports the New York Daily News

The tape shows Cookie’s shortened version of "SNL", with the Muppet doing his own take on "MacGruber" (called "Macarooner" in Cookie’s version) and portraying "Monster" Gaga as the musical guest playing a song called "Cookie Face." The campaign also includes a Facebook page titled "Cookie Monster should host Saturday Night Live!", which by Wednesday morning had drawn almost 35,000 "likes".

Even though a Facebook campaign helped Betty White get on the show, "Cookie Monster may have an uphill battle ahead of him," the story says. The Muppets were actually featured on the first season of "SNL" in 1975, but reportedly some of the show’s writers resisted writing for puppets, the story says, citing "Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live."

  3. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
