Bert Interviews Andy Samberg (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Bert will forever be known for his timeless partnership with Ernie, but the Sesame Street icon is off to a pretty good start with Andy, too.

Bert has premiered his brand new interview show, "Conversations with Bert," with the first half of an engaging chat with "Saturday Night Live" and Lonely Island star Andy Samberg. The two match wits and milk sips in a compelling conversation that ranges from historical socks -- current day vs. 5th century apparel -- to the limits of flight in imaginary worlds.

With Oprah leaving television, perhaps this is Bert's play at daytime TV dominance.
