Kids -- let's not try to figure out how this would even work. Cookie Monster wants to be the host of Saturday Night Live and we need to make this happen.
In an attempt branch out "beyond his cookie-eating career," the self-proclaimed "cookie enthusiast" has created the audition tape above to land a hosting gig on the NBC program. In the clip, you can watch the Sesame Street character in a MacGruber-esque sketch ("Macarooner"), a news segment and a musical performance (as Monster Gaga).

TMZ spotted Oprah Winfrey’s production crew outside the Jackson home over the weekend. The workers, who arrived in several trucks and two SUVs, confirmed that they were there doing “an Oprah shoot.”
The crew ordered pizzas and received a parking ticket while inside the home. They stayed briefly, then packed up and left.
Oprah did not make an appearance, so it’s likely the team was shooting an introductory segment for an eventual Katherine Jackson interview.

-Oksana Grigorieva, Mel Gibson’s ex, has chosen to give Oprah Winfrey her very first interview. It’s not known yet when that sit-down will air. (Let’s just hope it doesn’t involve singing as well.)
-According to an annual survey from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), HBO’s True Blood has the most gay characters on television. ABC tops major networks with 11 characters overall, while CBS came in last with only one.

Katy Perry has mocked her Sesame Street axing by appearing in a breast-baring Elmo T-shirt on Saturday Night Live.
The pop star appeared in a sketch on the comedy series wearing a low-cut top inspired by the red puppet and tiny plaid skirt. Katy played a volunteer librarian, named Maureen Dichico, whose large breasts were causing a stir at the local library.
Parodying the famous announcement at the end of each Sesame Street episode which reveals what letters and numbers featured in the day’s program, Katy’s sketch co-star Amy Poehler quipped, “Looks like today’s show is brought to you by the number 38 and the letters DD.”
On today’s Good Morning America broadcast, Sesame Street‘s executive producer explained why Katy Perry’s segment with Elmo was pulled from the kid-friendly program.
“We would never produce anything that we thought was inappropriate,” Carol-Lynne Parente said about the clip which featured a questionably-dressed Perry. “We were surprised by not only the amount of feedback, but how fast it came in. It was a lot.”
“Sesame Street has a long history. We have a great interactive relationship with our viewers, especially parents,” Parente insisted. “So we viewed a lot of feedback and made what we thought was an appropriate decision.”

UPDATE: See Elmo invite Katy Perry back to Sesame Street here.
When we first saw “Hot N Cold” singer Katy Perry performing with Elmo earlier this week, we couldn’t help but comment on her cleavage-baring dress. Apparently we weren’t the only ones.
“In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on YouTube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers,” Sesame Workshop said in a statement.
Perry, who recently saw fiance Russell Brand arrested in Los Angeles, once again used Twitter to respond to the news. “Wow, looks like my play date with Elmo has been cut short! If you still wanna play see it at www.katyperry.com Tag you’re it, Elmo!” Perry wrote.
