Half the show it once was with a thousand times more competition.

I blame PBS. Seriously... why does Super Why have to still be on?

Yeah. Sorry about my past post on receiving 1/2 hour episodes yet. This is the real truth about where I watch Sesame Street (this time I PROMISE THIS AND ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS TRUE!) On MPBN (where I live, in Maine) they still actually AIR HOUR EPISODES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This will only be until the 2nd or 3rd week of December (if I remember correctly). Then they will only play after that the 1/2 hr. episodes. I will miss the hour long episodes. Especially, where is Mr. Hooper these days? Are they going to drop references to him now?
Anyways, now back to 1/2 hour episodes. Here is the final (and (officially released) death paining) future format. (NOTE: Muppet Wiki & Muppet Central, the following YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO VERY CLOSELY FOR THE FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

What's the word on the street?
Street Sceen (now shortened to 8 minutes long)
The Word of the day
Other segments
documentary/Murray segments
Letter of the day (1 segment only)
Number of the day (1 segment only)
Elmo the Musical (now shortened from 10.5 minutes to about 10 minutes)
30 second recap...then the sponsors

For future reference, there should be noted that currently only two versions of Sesame Street currently use the original "classic format" still. They are:
Plaza Sesamo (Mexico/Central America)
Rechov SumSum (Israel)
No other versions as I know up to this date are like this anymore.
Thanks. Happy Thanksgiving for all who see this (and to all users anyways).
Wait...what WAS the 30-second recap? 🤔
