    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.

    I'm glad that two of the ones I recently missed due to not having HBO will be that soon on the schedule. I keep hearing good things about "Sesame Ocean" and kinda felt left out.

    I find it humorous that Episode 4629 is airing close to Halloween.

    Humorous? I don't think it was a coincidence

    To quote a certain Movie: "Grab your Torch and Pitchforks."

    I'm just saying it's going to get ugly now that the HBO shows are able to be viewed to the public.

    Thanks for that info. I couldn't find the episodes online anywhere. Now we only have a month to wait so that's good news. But still if anyone knows where I can find any videos of 4608 in the meantime, that would be great. I'm not too worried about the ones that are repeat episodes except for the new material they add to those episodes, but either way keep us updated.

    I doubt it. Most people wouldn't even have known about any changes unless they were reported and the news went viral or people actually tuned in.

    I can assure you a large percent of folks who whined about the recent cast member fooferah wouldn't have known because they probably don't watch the show nowadays.

    There was probably more anger at it being on HBO than anything that was changed in the series. I'm sure quite a few are going to be surprised to find out the show actually isn't HBO exclusive.

    How do you even figure that?

    I'd assume he means those who don't already know about the massive shifts in the show's format this season.

    It's called loyalty. And it doesn't matter whether one watches the show or not. We owe it to the veteran cast. Sadly, the concept of loyalty seems to be lost on many.

    I can guarantee you one thing though. I WILL DEFINITELY be watching the new shows to see if they keep their word or not.

    I know people are loyal; you should've seen the crowd at the MOMI's "Humans of Sesame Street" event, it was the largest one of any Henson event I've been to there.

    By keep their word I assume you mean about Gordon, Luis and Bob? If that's the case, I should warn you, the only classic cast member that makes an appearance is Gordon, and he only has one very short cameo.

    I'm quite pleased with the fact that the PBS run is in a different order than the episode order of HBO. There was no need to do that, they could have kept a good 9 months in between episodes aired like the intent of the rest of the series, but they went in a more randomized order that at least lets PBS viewers catch up with more recent HBO episodes instead of waiting up to a year until they actually air.

    Given how much the show has change for this season. It's going to be a diffcult one to sell on the media.

    I mean I can see the show giving out new interviews just to explain the changes to the public...again. :(

    What's to sell? Everything's aired already.

    And I'm sure the HBO co-production of the show has already been mishandled all over the place to begin with. Nothing's really going to come off as out of left field as that. Especially the lame jokes about how a channel that has a history of also producing kid's programming (sure, nothing noteworthy other than Fraggle Rock) is going to make a kids' show a not kids' show. That was funny for about five seconds.

    I don't think the media really cares about what's on Sesame Street that isn't a promoted TV/movie/song parody anyway.
