Figured this could be its own thread. Season 46 starts airing on PBS starting September 12. What's interesting is that they won't be airing in the same order as HBO. And it seems like the "9 month window" is from the premiere of the season, not specific episodes, as you'll see some later eps in the season are airing right away. Here's the schedule so far: 09/12 - 4601 (Bedtime Story) 09/13 - 4632 (Sesame Ocean) 09/14 - 4602 (Mucko Polo) 09/15 - 4608 (When Dinosaurs Walked Sesame Street) 09/19 - 4630 (Afraid of the Bark) 09/26 - 4624 (Abby Makes the Seasons Change) In between those dates are re-runs of those same shows.
