It’s hard to pinpoint when exactly Downton Abbey transitioned from water-cooler drama to gilded afterthought, but we didn’t have to wait long to revisit the Crawley family. NBCUniversal bosses claim Downton Abbey is gearing up for a movie, which might shoot as early as 2018.
We’re no where near the middle of outrage from proposed congressional budget cuts, the most visible of which would eliminate funding for staples like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Sesame Street in particular made headlines switching from PBS funding to HBO, though both it, and Jimmy Kimmel have now placed Big Bird in the spotlight to address the historic cut.
Set down that saucer of tea and wipe away the crumpets, shocking news lies in store. After six decadent seasons spent at the luxurious Downton Abbey, producers have officially confirmed that the Crawley family will say goodbye. The final episode will air later on this year, but when, your servants inquire?
We've seen 'Sesame Street' take on the likes of such TV-MA fare as 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'Homeland,' but can it master deductions when it comes to 'Sherlock'? Okay, it isn't exactly the great detective, but Benedict Cumberbatch himself making deductions with 'Sesame Street' muppets is the next best thing!
We live in a time with literally 300 channels and thousands of programs to choose from. Everything from foreign language TV stations to shopping channels, cable/satellite channels to the original networks. One of those original networks was PBS, and it was on November 13, 1961, that WCBB out of central Maine signed on.
We've seen 'Sesame Street' take on everything from 'Sons of Anarchy' to 'Boardwalk Empire,' but the long-running PBS series' "Homeland" parody might be the most spot-on yet. Bringing Carrie, Brody, Saul and the rest to life as "Homelamb," you might be surprised by the adult humor 'Sesame Street' manages to cram into its latest parody.
“Upside Downton Abbey” is a wonderful production (or spoof) from Sesame Street. As a Downton Abbey fan, I love it! If you have ever watched the PBS show, you know exactly who these Muppets represent. Great job, Sesame Street.
As everybody knows, Sunday it is Super Bowl XLVII (47) with the 49ers vs. the Ravens. Most everybody will be watching the game, if for no other reason, it will be for the entertainment aspect of the event. Well not everyone wants to watch football, so I went ahead on the remote control guide thingy and have come up with a few alternatives to the Super Bowl.
