Last weekend, Sesame Street became the very first television program to be honored by the Kennedy Center.  Founders Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett were present, as well as the cast of Sesame Street.

This Sunday, December 15th at 8pm ET, the Kennedy Center Honors will be televised on CBS.  You’ll be able to see the full ceremony complete with celebrity performances, as well as the inductions for the other honorees: Linda Ronstadt, Sally Field, conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, and Earth Wind & Fire.

Here’s a preview of the event:
