Samantha Bee was once an awesome Mother Goose on 'Sesame Street'

23 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is off to a running start thanks to its whip-smart commentary on Jeb Bush and his wilting exclamation point, but let's not forget that Samantha Bee once gave us a formal lesson in rhetoric on Sesame Street -- in a stunning Mother Goose costume. In 2013, Bee appeared on Sesame Street as a rhyme-penning Mother Goose who'd come down with writer's block. Luckily some pals arrive to help her out in this preview clip. So keep in mind as Full Frontal rolls on that Samantha Bee is not just an authority on Daily Show-style punditry. She also knows a thing or two about Dr. Seuss literary tricks.  As a side note, I love thinking of Mother Goose as an agitated Lillian Hellman type attempting to get her inspiration down on paper.  »

The Big Short review: “One of the most important films of our generation”

22 January 2016 1:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Big Short review: Can the director of Anchorman and Step Brothers really be the man to explore and explain the financial crises of the late naughties? The Big Short review

This year’s Academy Award nominations may not represent diversity in terms of race or gender, but those best picture noms certainly detail how awful white people are. None does it so well (give or take maybe Spotlight) as Adam McKay’s docu-drama The Big Short. The majority of us will know all about the recession, market crash, and housing crises that swept most of the world, and The Big Short goes some way to explaining how it all happened and who’s to blame. The only problem is that it’s far too complicated, but nevertheless we have one of the most important films of the year that delights in how messy it has to be in order to tackle this gigantic subject. »

PBS Chief Paula Kerger Talks ‘Mercy Street’ Renewal, ‘Downton Abbey’ Legacy and ‘Hamilton’ Special

18 January 2016 12:20 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We’re very happy today,” PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger told reporters Monday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena, Calif., basking in early ratings for the debut of the new drama “Mercy Street,” which had bowed to a 2.2, exceeding expectations. An additional 200,000 streamed the show, giving a boost to the multi-platform effort behind the launch. “I think we’ve begun an important conversation.”

Still, she resisted repeated efforts to commit to an early renewal for the show. “I haven’t seen scripts for a second season,” she said, “but we have very much left the door open.”

Given that “Downton Abbey” is now in its final season, the network can breathe a sigh of relief that its drama slate seems secure with the Civil War-set series. She defended the use of her limited marketing budget to support that transition, telling reporters, “We’re constantly evaluating how »

Jimmy Fallon Photobombed a Bunch of Young Sesame Street Fans

15 January 2016 8:08 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jimmy Fallon, America's favorite puppet (the felt kind, not the Illuminati kind, although now that you mention it ...), has followed in the tradition of that other Jimmy and pulled a prank on unsuspecting children. Except instead of pretending to take something away, the Tonight Show host is giving them an unexpected gift: One personally photobombed photo with the cast of Sesame Street. Why not try out some of these moves the next time you're out with your friends? We're big fans of the double-hoagie. »

Jimmy Fallon and the Sesame Street Gang Photobombing Unsuspecting Kids Is the Cutest Thing You'll See All Day

15 January 2016 7:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What do you get when Jimmy Fallon teams up with the Sesame Street characters to play a prank on a few unsuspecting kids? Complete and utter adorableness. In a new clip, the Tonight Show host teaches the PBS stars a lesson in photobombing: "Okay guys. Be quiet. We're doing a photobomb. You know what a photobomb is, right?" Fallon, 41, tells Elmo, the Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby."Well, a photobomb is when someone takes a picture and then we jump in the background and surprise them, and then they don't know that we're there until they see it on their phone. »

If Sesame Street can gentrify, are any TV streets safe?

15 January 2016 2:45 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Oscar the Grouch’s new recycling bin to Coronation Street’s trendy wine bar, gentrification is seemingly unstoppable – on TV as much as in real life

Sesame Street is gentrifying. The New York neighbourhood at the heart of the 45-year-old kids’ show is changing to reflect new social realities. “It is more like things look now,” Carmen Osbahr, a puppeteer on the show for 26 years, said recently. “When Sesame Street was created, it was kind of more like the Bronx.”

She meant that, back in the day, Sesame Street was as gritty and urban as a puppet show for pre-schoolers can get. It had cramped apartments, a run-down playground and the implication that Oscar the Grouch, who lived in a trash can, was effectively homeless.

Oscar recycles, Elmo has moved to a brownstone. How long before hipsters with beards and microbreweries start moving in?

‘Sesame Street’ Shakes Up Its Neighborhood to Woo Digital Kids

13 January 2016 5:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cookie Monster, Elmo and Abby Cadabby, three of the most popular residents of Sesame Street, have long talked to children. Now they must also answer to HBO – and many other forces beyond their control.

Sesame Street,” the revered program that has taught preschoolers about letters, numbers and even how to handle the death of a loved one over the course of nearly half a century, debuts on the Time Warner pay-cable service this Saturday, the first time its new episodes will not be seen initially on PBS. As it does so, it will function not just as one of America’s best-loved tools for teaching preschoolers their first words, but also as a pillar in HBO’s strategy to win new subscribers during one of the most confused times in media-industry history.

That’s because HBO is no longer just a cable network, and, as such, “Sesame Street” is no longer something just for kids. »

X-Files Parody: Mulder and Scully Have Sex in Front of Jimmy Kimmel — Video

12 January 2016 10:15 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

So much for that big Mulder and Scully breakup!

Although Fox’s forthcoming X-Files revival reunites the iconic detectives on a purely professional basis, the former couple rekindled their romance on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

PhotosThe X-Files: Major Spoilers (William!) and First Looks (Lone Gunmen!) at Fox’s 6-Episode Revival

The spot-on parody — embedded above for your viewing pleasure — finds Mulder and Scully (as played by the game David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) hopelessly and hilariously stuck in the ’90s. Kimmel eventually urges them to “have sex” because “it’s been, like, 23 years.”

TV Review: Sesame Street Pares Down

12 January 2016 10:17 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Sonia Manzano retired from Sesame Street at the end of last season, she did a round of media appearances to help all of us bid bon voyage to Maria. I was listening to some NPR podcast or another (she appeared on a few) on the subway, and as she chatted about Sesame Street's legacy, the evolution of Maria and Luis's relationship, and her favorite characters and segments, I cried. My children won't know Maria from Sesame Street was one thought. But …I don't have children. I am aged and will someday be but a speck of dust swirling through our universe isn't a new crisis, nor does it usually reduce me to tears. Mostly, change is just hard — a concept the show itself tries to help kids with — and being forced to confront the fact that Sesame Street was different now, and had morphed without me even knowing, »

What Will HBO’s Sesame Street Look Like?

12 January 2016 8:28 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In August, PBS made a surprising announcement: It was handing over the reins of its iconic children’s show Sesame Street to HBO, where new episodes will begin airing this month. To outsiders, the idea of putting Big Bird and Elmo on the same shelf as Game of Thrones and Cathouse: The Series seemed odd — not least because, as many pointed out, Sesame Street’s mission at its founding in 1969 had been to serve underprivileged city kids, not those in possession of premium cable. But internally, HBO was seen as a kind of salvation: For the past several years, the brand had been struggling, and the new network promised not just financial security but creative independence. And it wasn’t as if the underprivileged kids had been left totally behind — a deal had been worked out wherein, after a nine-month delay, PBS would air the episodes too.But even before »

Sesame Street Meets True Detective In 'Exclusive' Clip From Kimmel (Video)

6 January 2016 6:23 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sesame Street is on the move from PBS to HBO, but in Oscar the Grouch’s eyes, it’s all just “one ghetto, man.”
