June 11th marks the anniversary of TWO pop culture staples! We’ll give you a hint… This day is special to both Drew Barrymore and Ryan Seacrest.

Any ideas?

Up first…

 

 

 

 

On this day 14 years ago, American Idol premiered on FOX!

The singing competition has gifted us with some huge names in entertainment and some of the best performances in reality television. The show called it a wrap after a successful 15th season, with the final winner being Trent Harmon.

 

 

 

 

But Idol isn’t the only thing to celebrate today! There’s one more…

 

 

34 years ago today E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial hit theaters!

The popular film depicts a friendly alien who becomes stranded on earth before developing a relationship with two kids who attempt to keep his existence in their home a secret!

 

 

 

 

Do you remember either of these days?
