In a dry spell without Last Week Tonight, we're still getting plenty of John Oliver. He spoofed Sesame Street in a segment about prisons last month, and now he's teamed up with Cookie Monster to anchor a news show about vocabulary words. It's sort of like Last Week Tonight, but with less cursing and more monsters.

Oliver even gets a chance to give a lesson on the word "literally"—something he's quite familiar with, thank you.

W-ORD 7 News features cameos by Al Roker, SNL's Kate McKinnon, Nick Offerman, and Nick Offerman's mustache, and was created to promote Sesame Street's new vocabulary initiative, Words Are Here, There and Everywhere.
