    Good for Pajanimals, at least.

    I'm NO fan of this "Saturday Mornings are for Preschoolers" jazz, using existing programming to fill out an FCC requirement. I can't say I dearly loved qubo on NBC (at least since they stopped airing Jacob Two-Two), but between this and CBS's Cookie Jar TV (home of the Doodlebops and Busytown Mysteries), it's just telling kids 6-11 to sleep in. That promotes laziness. In my day (at least up until 2009), you'd wake up, watch the 4 hours of programming to ease you into the day, and then run outside and play or do something.

    But if it means Pajanimals gets exposure, I can't complain all that much.

    That's good news for Henson. Glad to hear it.

    Wait, so this is just a series of shows shown on regular NBC Saturday mornings, not a new station, right?

    Yeah. FCC requirements. They have to have 3 hours of educational programming, and they usually just pass the buck and air pre-existing programming so they don't have to come up with new programming. Basically, the laziest job in the world you can get is major network Saturday Morning programming exec. Only thing easier is syndicated network Saturday Morning Programming Exec. That's sit on your fat butt and run infomercials and collect an undeserved paycheck.

    As a devoted eater of sugared breakfast cereals and Saturday Morning programming enthusiast/savant/junkee, it makes me sick to my stomach.

    Seriously... I am a junkee for that stuff, and they forced me to sober up. That's why I'm always in a bad mood.

    That means I'll finally get to check out the Pajanimals! At first I was worried that it would be another new station I don't get.

    Well, that sounds like a good start; songs are great!

    Not sure why - Henson owns that property, not Disney.

    I don't know, Henson seems to have a thing with NBC. (Universal)

    You wanna know about ABC, huh?

    Here's the absolute garbage they replaced their line up with.

    I could turn this into a 3 page rant about it... it's disgustingly cheap and cowardly... I'm not going to get into it.
