CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – Television's cookie connoisseur is turning to social media in hopes of landing a gig on late night.

That's right, Cookie Monster wants his shot at hosting Saturday Night Live.

The campaign follows the grassroots effort that landed funny woman Betty White as host of the late night variety show.

On Tuesday, Sesame Street posted an audition video on their official YouTube page and set up a Facebook page in hopes of convincing SNL execs to take a chance on the monster.

No word yet if Saturday Night Live would consider allowing a monster to host, or if Cookie would be able to handle hosting duties so late past bedtime.
