NEW YORK (AP) — Meetings of furry monsters and humans is part of a new Sesame Workshop family friendly show on HBO Max called "The Not Too Late Show with Elmo."

It begins streaming May 27.

Guests during the initial 13-week episode run include Kacey Musgraves, the Jonas Brothers, Lil Nas X, Miles Brown, Blake Lively, Dan + Shay, Andy Cohen, Josh Groban, Olivia Wilde and Sara Bareilles.

The talk show business may be ruthless, but Jimmy Fallon and John Oliver make appearances and help sharpen Elmo's interview skills.

Elmo challenges Fallon to a stare contest, which is not entirely fair since Elmo doesn't have eyelids.
