News & Interviews for The Not Too Late Show with Elmo: Season 1
The idea of Kacey Musgraves singing "Rubber Duckie" or Mulaney greeting sidekick Cookie Monster is not without its charms, even if it's a little unsettling to look this much at Cookie Monster's legs.
It's easy to imagine toddlers watching episodes on repeat. For adults, however, only the occasional guest can make such a concentrated dose of Elmo's high-pitched squeal worth enduring.
For all its subtle nods to the adults in the audience, at the end of the night (well, evening, since Elmo's bedtime is at 7:30pm) it is a show for children, in all the best ways.
The meta, inside-baseball side of The Not Too Late Show is funny, smart and packed with likable gags and puns and general silliness... No, The Not Too Late Show didn't make me love Elmo, but I dug its for-all-ages hijinks much more than I expected to.
It's a clever, charming concept, executed with the Workshop's customary care and craft.
The Not Too Late Show With Elmo is aimed sniper-like at the usual Sesame Street crowd, obviously intending to introduce the nippers to the talk show format. And it's pretty good at doing that.
More often than not, the conversations feel forced and the concept feels too adult for kids to enjoy (does the Sesame Street audience really crave a late-night format?) and too juvenile for grown-ups.
Sorry, Stephen Colbert, but you finally have real competition for my not-so-late-night viewing.
Supremely adorable, laugh-out-loud funny, and just 15 minutes an episode, The Not-Too-Late Show is an essential addition to your nightly ritual no matter how long you've been out of the series' target demographic.
It's a fun extension of the 'Sesame Street' brand and a good way for kids to get into the fun that a talk show format can be.
