The Sunday show race is getting so tight that CBS’ Bob Schieffer reached out to Elmo for some help.
“Could you come and be my co-anchor? I think it would be great for the ratings.”
“Only if Mr. Bob comes to Sesame Street too.” Obviously, it was a deal.
Schieffer joked that it seemed to work for legendary CBS newsman Walter Cronkite, who co-anchored the morning news with Charlemagne the Lion in the 1950s. Check out a photo of Cronkite and his puppet co-host after the jump.
