Wow, they’ll give anybody a tonight show nowadays, even a three-and-a-half-year-old Muppet! Yes, it’s Elmo time.
Complete with the real king of the Sesame Street Muppet brigade, Cookie Monster, The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo is set to bring the tonight show home in a more kid friendly format – and time slot.
That doesn’t mean that there won’t be cool guests though, with a quick look at the trailer below showing everybody from Jason Sudeikis and the Jonas Brothers through to Batman. Or somebody dressed as Batman. Even a couple of human tonight show hosts are in there in the form of John Oliver and Jimmy Fallon.
The only issue we can foresee for older viewers is whether they can still hear the insanely high frequencies of Elmo’s voice. But doesn’t he look cute in that natty tie and suit?
The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo kicks off on May 27.
