'Sesame Street' shares


October 27, 2008|By DAVID ZURAWIK | DAVID ZURAWIK,david.zurawik@baltsun.com

I have long loved the way in which Sesame Street plugs kids into pop culture, and there's a fine example of that today when NBC anchorman Brian Williams visits the street. A special "Sesame Street Update" finds Williams investigating why "no one is sharing." What he finds is an epidemic of Mine-itis, a Grouch disease that makes everyone think everything is theirs - and they don't want to share with anyone.

The cure?

Getting a grouch to share with you.

Share this one with a kid. (9:30 a.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) ****
