They’ve let junkies host the show before, why not him?
Say what you want about SNL, but at least they’re willing to listen to the fans. Last Spring, after a huge Internet push, Betty White got to host the Mothers Day edition of the show. Sure, it’s not in it’s real hey days of the first cast, the Farly/Sandler years, or the Ferrel/Fey years, but I think that they’re on the verge of their next great boom with the Lonely Island crew and this new cast. Only problem. Shitty hosts. Oh sure, you can always bring in a Baldwin or a Walken to spice things up, but remember, there are twenty six some odd episodes after that. Need to fill those slots, and lets face it, asses like Justin Bieber or the chick from Glee (not Jane Lynch, any of the others though) don’t cut it.
Cookie Monster on the other hand, I think could kick ass as a host.
So says this audition video the blue fuzzy slight against God’s divine creation put out.
I say let him do it. A few good writers, and I think that Cookie Monster could rival Tom Hanks as a host. And that’s a bold statement right there. If you feel that Cookie Monster could host SNL, head on over to the Facebook page and make your voice heard. After all, that’s how 88 year old Betty White got on, and that’s how we can get this Muppet to host. It’s been too long since Jim Henson had a presence on SNL, and it’s high time his spirit was felt again.
