    Sesame Street Season 46 Episode 4618 - A Very Cookie Mother's Day

    I honestly think Ismael Cruz Cordova and Nitya Vidyasagar exited the show on their own terms. It does seem unlikely that the show would publicly cover their search for a new cast member only to dismiss him from the show after two seasons. (Unless studies show he didn't test well with the...

    Sesame Street Season 46 Episode 4618 - A Very Cookie Mother's Day

    I absolutely agree, but I think this cements that the show is really only using Alan, Chris, and Nina as humans now. It would have been so easy to insert Susan or Gina into that spot, but they chose to use Nina instead. We haven't seen any other humans on the show so far this season, and as far...

    Sesame Street Season 46 Episode 4618 - A Very Cookie Mother's Day

    What I think you're forgetting is that the children watching the show, who (as much as I'm sure the show values the opinions of the long-time fans) are who the episodes are written for, have moms in their 20s and 30s. The typical moms (and even grandmothers, in some cases) nowadays no longer...

    Here is the video of the entire Daytime Emmy's broadcast. Sonia's part starts around 50:30. Alan Muraoka, Emilio Delgado, Loretta Long, Alison Bartlett, and Bob McGrath are there too.

    Just out of curiosity, have we heard Jen's Zoe this season yet?

    Sesame Street Season 46 Press Kit; HBO premiere set for Saturday January 16, 2016

    Does anyone else see any sort of hint of any other human characters besides Chris, Alan, and Nina? In every press shot for the season, not to mention behind-the-scenes shots and the Macy's Parade, they are the only ones to be found. Not even former heavy-hitters like Mando and Leela are featured...

    TV Alert: Sesame Street at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

    I was pretty underwhelmed by this years performance, I hate to say. I think it was definitely the weakest one in recent memory. QuestLove was completely unnecessary. I don't know why he was there. Why were only Alan and Nina there? That was so weird to me. I know Chris is never a part of the...

    Sesame Street Season 46 Press Kit; HBO premiere set for Saturday January 16, 2016

    But remember, in those days there were 100+ episodes with the new set and just a handful of repeats. There was more consistency. This season has half of the episodes with the new set and half of the episodes as reruns with all sorts of different iterations of the set.

    Sesame Street Season 46 Press Kit; HBO premiere set for Saturday January 16, 2016

    Now that the press kit is out, there's a lot of stuff that is worth talking about. I love to see Stephanie, Jen, and Billy all being included with their new characters on the puppeteer bio page. Nina now runs the bike shop. Does it say anywhere that she co-runs it with Luis or is she the...

    Major Changes in store for Sesame Street Season 46

    Everyone needs to stop worrying about the "core six" thing. They are only doing that to create a more "familiar" feel to the neighborhood by having the same faces show up on a consistent basis. This show has so many characters that it could be easy for kids to forget about certain ones because...

    Actress Suki Lopez has confirmed via the resume on her website that she has joined the cast for the 46th season as a new, recurring character named Nina.

    Sonia Manzano will not be on Sesame Street after Season 45

    I'm sure that's true to a point, but Bob has gone on record in both newspaper interviews and in I Am Big Bird to state that he now views Sesame Street more like a hobby than he does a job because he is not called in for more than an episode or two per season. So, it seems at least he is...

    Sonia Manzano will not be on Sesame Street after Season 45

    What's sad is that it won't be mentioned. Maria won't likely be mentioned other than in passing by Luis, ("I've gotta get home to Maria," etc.) if even that. The human characters' roles on the show have diminished so much since the start that they can filter through in and out without a second...

    Major Changes in store for Sesame Street Season 46

    I mean, the shake-up that I heard about didn't really correlate with the new residences. It kind of took me by surprise when I heard. There could be more changes regarding the new residences, but I hadn't heard anything.
