You could easily say the same for SNL. Really. Just because Jane Curtain and Dan Akroyd aren't on the show and it's completely unfunny to me, wanting to cancel it for everyone else is very selfish. SS is a show that transcends being a kiddy show. look at all the stuff it's done internationally... even now even here. It's an institution. And as much as it's unbearable for old school fans to watch... well, look all over Youtube and Sesame's website. You can always find old clips. Yeah, I completely disagree with most of the decisions they've made in the last 20 years... but that's what happens when children's programming as a whole slid down a very deep slope and continues to. Face it... Dora, Blue, Barney... those things didn't exist in 1969, but when they came into being someone somewhere felt they were the end all be all of educational content. And of course, SS had to absorb some of that gunk. And it seemed to work, which is even more unfortunate. Media has changed completely in the last 5 years alone. I'm sure someone said kids wouldn't get the reference to commercials do in part of Tivo, and they ran with it. Now they wanna turn a hour long show into an hour block of programming for some reason. Another dreaded Nick Jr. influence. I don't like it, but they're probably not going to have it for long. Maybe it'll come full circle, and things will one day go back to the way they were, or close to it. It's not that they didn't try. They did a couple seasons ago and it tested poorly. it happens.
