John Oliver And Cookie Monster Team Up To Anchor 'W-ORD Channel 7 News'

Would we watch a newscast that mixes comedy, grammar lessons and "Sesame Street" characters? In a word, definitely.

"Last Week Tonight" star John Oliver joined forces with Cookie Monster for this word-centric news report that (unfortunately) won't be a nightly TV program, but (fortunately) will tell you all the breaking vocabulary news you need to know.

The segment covers such hard-hitting news as the word "Chair" losing its "C" and features familiar faces like Kate McKinnon, Telly Monster, Nick Offerman and even Al Roker with the "Vocab-U-Cast."

You can thank Mashable and "Sesame Street" for putting this together to promote the latter's "Words are Here, There and Everywhere" initiative.
