Anderson Cooper and Brian Williams On… Sesame Street? Yup.

Sesame Street is going newscaster crazy. Brian Williams is guest starring on the Monday, August 13 episode of Sesame Street where he will read the word of the day — squid. Meanwhile, Anderson Cooper is scheduled for a guest appearance on October 16:

“”I have a mild form of dyslexia, and I had a reading problem. So for me, Sesame Street was vital,” says Cooper, 40. “Beyond what I learned in terms of ABC’s and counting, the sense of how one deals with other people is something that I got early on from Sesame Street.”

The promo picture of Cooper with Oscar the Grouch and Muppet news anchors Walter Cranky and Dan Rather-Not just says it all.
