Boring. It's too bad that Cookie Monster's audition for SNL had him doing funny things like making fun of hosting SNL ("cookie joke, blah blah blah"), but then when he actually got on SNL, he wasn't funny at all. Just think of how great he was on the Colbert Report ("me had crazy times in the Eighties")- he could have really made a splash on SNL. Instead, this segment is completely forgettable.
Way cool to see David Rudman at the end, though. And I still love seeing any Muppet out in the wider world!
Yeah, mildly amusing. But, unfortunately, this could have been a lot better. Cookie Monster making "up to date" jokes like calling Jeff "The Dude" and saying he wanted an i-Pad just seemed like the writers were trying too hard. The voice sounded good though. I'm incredibly disappointed that both performers were walking around with half a Cookie Monster at the end. I don't think Jim would have liked that. Sure Jim had Kermit on his lap from time to time on a talk show but I can't remember EVER seeing half a Muppet on a show being paraded around like, well, a puppet. Takes away some of the magic the original performers worked so hard to create. Oh well. Maybe next time.
I hope this WASN'T it. I really wanna see him through the whole show.. and announced too, since I went too bed too early to actually catch that. And it's not like I make it appoint to watch SNL regularly.
