After a successful campaign by fans to get comedienne and actress Betty White to host Saturday Night Live (SNL), others have jumped into the fray. The latest is none other than the aforementioned Cookie Monster, who appeared in an audition video posted to YouTube on Nov. 23. Just a few days later, it had more than one million views and is still going strong.
