PBS Chief Paula Kerger Talks ‘Sesame Street’ Changes, Spectrum Auction

28 July 2016 10:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though PBS continues to air new episodes of “Sesame Street” six months after they premiere on HBO, the public broadcaster was not apprised of the recent changes that saw three long-time cast members let go until after the moves had been made.

“As you know, Sesame Street is produced by Sesame Workshop, an independent production company,” PBS CEO Paula Kerger said Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. “The casting decision was made by them. We did not know about it beforehand. We found out about it after.”

Speaking at an event earlier this month, original cast member Bob McGrath revealed that he and two other longtime cast members had been let go from the show as part of its recent retooling. In January, a new deal for the show saw new original episodes of “Sesame Street” premiere first on HBO.

28 July 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert and John Oliver inserted themselves into Elizabeth Banks' all-star rendition of Rachel Platten's "Fight Song" for Hillary Clinton on The Late Show Wednesday.

Colbert squeezed in among the Brady Bunch-style boxes with stars like Sia, Connie Britton and Alan Cumming and sang the Chili's baby back ribs jingle. The Late Show host also performed some impressive ventriloquism and gave a random didgeridoo solo for good measure.

Oliver, meanwhile, injected "Our Fight Song" with his classic British cantankerousness, demanding to know how he'd been duped into appearing in the video. »

Last year it was Jane the Virgin that got screwed. This year I have a sinking feeling it’s going to be Mr. Robot.

Emmy Nominations will be announced Thursday at 11:30 am Est (stay glued to TVLine for the complete rundown/analysis!) and my gut is telling me that USA Network’s breakout hacker drama — and its sterling ensemble, led by Rami Malek and Christian Slater — will be completely shut out.

Many of Britain’s notable entertainment figures were shocked upon hearing that the country had decided to pull itself from the European Union. Thursday’s vote on Brexit – the name given to the decision if the United Kingdom should remain a member of the E.U. – resulted in 52 percent in favor of departing and 48 percent wanting to stay.

The bitterly divided nation’s choice could leave the county’s economy and government in disarray and unleash unforeseen consequences that have many in Hollywood worried. The results of the referendum resulted in a slew of negative feelings from the entertainment industry’s well-known players. Ricky Gervais posted various comments on Twitter, even joking about Donald Trump.

The UK may be in economic crisis but at least Donald Trump has turned up.
