Sesame Street Meets Les Mis

I'm not sure where this video came from, since it seems to be uploaded magically by a random person on YouTube, but "Sesame Street"'s take on Les Miserables is pretty cute. Their version, Les Mousserables, is about "a French guy who is very sad because he had no cookies." Man, "Sesame Street" really gets us. Thankfully, (spoiler alert) the French guy gets some cookies! But then this lady is sad that she doesn't have cookies for her kid and, well, I won't tell you the whole thing. But what a great story! I can't wait until it opens on Broadway.

Blurred Lines

It's been an interesting few weeks for Robin Thicke, whose song, "Blurred Lines," has simultaneously been hailed the "song of the summer" and incredibly offensive due to the lyrics and video. I won't get into it, but Thicke said he stands by his work. "What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman," he said. Regardless, the song is ridiculously catchy and Thicke has been getting tons of press, just in time for the release of his new album. He even stopped by Jimmy Fallon's show where he, Fallon, and The Roots performed "Blurred Lines" using instruments one might find at an elementary school. One thing I think we can all agree on: Jimmy Fallon and The Roots are the best.

What People Are Talking About

This week, people are talking about the "Best Song Ever," a "Full House" semi-reunion, and Kristen Wiig as Michael Jordan.

1D's "Best Song Ever"

Earlier this week, Directioners were super excited when One Direction's new single, "Best Song Ever," leaked a few days early. The song was set to come on July 22, and the band was even releasing daily video teasers culminating in a countdown until the song's release. With only five days to go, the song leaked online July 17. To be fair, the band had been teasing the song since they released the trailer for their 3D movie, "This Is Us," back in June. I doubt this will hurt sales even a little bit.

Since I talked about "The Office" finale at length already, I won't include that in this week's post. But just know this: OMG. In addition to "The Office," we'll also say goodbye to an SNL cast member; the cutest graduate said goodbye to college; and Barbara Walters says goodbye to television.

Bill Hader leaves SNL

This week, Bill Hader announced that Saturday's SNL episode will be his last. His decision to leave the show follows that news that Seth Meyers will be leaving Weekend Update to take over Jimmy Fallon's late-night hosting gig. Hader told the New York Times, "It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point." For eight years, Hader played characters like the smarmy game show host; Herb Welch, a not-so-great reporter; and, of course, Stefon, a frequent Weekend Update guest who gave tips for the hottest spots in NYC, usually in the form of nightclubs that were so bizarre Hader couldn't stay in character. (See a mash-up of great Stefon moments in the video.) Mostly, Bill Hader was one of those SNL members who seemed like he'd be on the show forever. And we kinda liked it that way.

Whenever an SNL alum comes back to host the show, it’s pretty much a guaranteed good episode. When Kristen Wiig comes back to host SNL, the world collectively breathes a sigh of relief because SNL feels complete again. Or something like that! The point is, Kristen hosted Saturday’s show and the consensus seems to be that she did pretty great. In case you missed it, here are a few of her best skits from Saturday’s show.

The Californians

The accents in this skit are amazing, but the fact that Kristen, Fred, and Bill keep almost-breaking makes it even better. Also, Maya Rudolph, Kristen’s co-star in the films "Bridesmaids" and "Friends With Kids," makes an appearance!
