On Gear Live: Samsung S95C: The OLED TV You Can’t Afford (to Ignore!)

Sprout  The host of The Good Night Show has been fired after her bosses learned of her questionable job history.  Prior to landing her gig on the PBS Kids Sprout network, Melanie Martinez appeared in two videos called Technical Virgin.  The stage actress spoofed PSAs centered on young women keeping their virginity.  Apparently, the PBS President didn’t feel this was an appropriate image for someone who appeared in front of pre-school aged children.  The Good Night Show airs for three hours each evening and helps get young children to sleep.  No word yet on a replacement for Martinez.

Sesame StreetStarting August 14, Sesame Street, in its 37th season, will introduce its first new female muppet in 13 years.  Her name is Abby Cadabby.  According to a press release from the Sesame Workshop, “Abby, whose catchphrase is ‘that’s so magic,’ is a pink “fairy-in-training” who uses rhyme and magic to express herself – a youngster who knows just enough about magic to get herself in a jam but not always enough to get out of trouble.”  The new season’s episodes will also include guest spots from the likes of Jamie Foxx, John Legend, Matt Lauer, Amy Sedaris, Grey’s Anatomy star T.R. Knight.

I don’t know, but it seems a little late for Sesame Street to be jumping on the Harry Potter bandwagon.  And, clearly, “that’s so magic” is just a rip-off of That’s So Raven.  Is there no originality in children’s television programming anymore?
