Hey now, this is certainly a concept for a thing. Take a well-known and easily caricatured character from the biggest show on TV, drop her into an iconic show that everybody under the age of 50 grew up watching and that also has a character with a similar name, and the results are guaranteed to be, uh, two minutes long? Posted by every site in the world the next morning? I’d like to say “funny,” but that might be a little bit of a stretch. It’s definitely a concept, though, and one SNL did last night when Taraji P. Henson hosted. They were able to shoot on the real Sesame Street with the real Muppets, which is nice. Maybe I’m being a grouch, though—take a look for yourself and see what you think.
