The word of the day is SAD.
That's because one of Sesame Street's most longtime residents Maria is retiring after an amazing 44 years!
Maria — played by actress Sonia Manzano — joined the show way back in 1971, a year we're assured really existed, and not just on TV!
Sonia announced her retirement during an address at the American Library Association Annual Conference on Tuesday to both shock and grief from fans.
During her time on the Street, the Latina role model won 15 Emmys for her writing and was nominated twice for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series for her time onscreen.
The next generation to watch Sesame Street will be a little worse off for not having her around. See some of her best moments through the years (below)!
On Thursday, Jon Stewart dedicated two segments to the tragic hate crime that resulted in the deaths of nine people in Charleston, SC on Wednesday evening. The political satirist had no intention of making this week's shooting spree into a funny moment.
He shared with the audience:
"I have nothing for you."
However, he took his time in front of the camera to appeal to the American public that this incident was more than a massacre but a terrorist attack.
We all know Netflix has been KILLING it with groundbreaking shows that have fresh characters and edgy concepts.
So it's no surprise that the streaming service is expecting to win a big haul for the Emmy awards in September!
To get us ready, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Tituss Burgess sits down and opens one of those fancy "for your consideration" Mailers that Emmy voters get so they can binge watch all of the shows being considered for nominations!
But Titus finds more than just DVDs in this box of treats — it also comes with props from your favorite Netflix shows!
The goodies include a Litchfield Prison inmate jacket from Orange Is the New Black, a BoJack Horseman style horse mask, and some of Lily Tomlin's vaginal lubricant her character made in Grace & Frankie!
Check out the video (above) to find more references from House of Cards, Bloodline, and Daredevil. The Emmy nominees will be announced on July 16!
Though, we do have to give props to Kim for being an amazing spokesperson for the family!
Rather, it was new pal
This is just plain… Bad!

Unless you've been in the SHU for the past 12 hours, you already know that Netflix began streaming the new season of Orange is the New Black six hours early!
On Thursday, the streaming service announced they had already released Season 3 of the prison dramedy starring Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon, sharing the news on their Twitter:
Though it was only released several hours before expected, many fans ditched their plans to binge watch the new episodes — whether it was dinner plans, watching the NBA Finals, or even attending a graduation!
Here are some social media reactions when fans learned the women of Litchfield Correctional Institution were out on "early release":
Dreams do come true!!
On Tuesday, Transparent creator Jill Soloway revealed at the Brass Ring Awards that Caitlyn Jenner's officially been invited to the set of the critically acclaimed show!
The Emmy nominee stated:
"I don't know if she'd want to act, but we definitely want to incorporate the fact that she came out into this season. Just to have that base conversation somewhere in a scene, for sure."
Could we be anymore excited?! Caitlyn, you should totally do it!
In fact, the comedienne's show was inspired by her own experiences with her father's transgender reveal four years ago.
"The whole family transitions because everybody's changing. If one person becomes more authentic, everyone comes to be more authentic. If you're not being yourself, you can't have an honest communication with someone who is being themselves. So everyone really grows from it. It calls everyone into their higher self."
And we believe that is EXACTLY what the Jenner/Kardashian clan is going through right now.
In regards to the reality star's Vanity Fair cover — Soloway gushed nothing but praise! However, she did find it important to highlight Laverne Cox's recent criticism on how the media handles trans women.
