Saturday Morning for Preschoolers on NBC

NBC teamed up with PBS Sprout to create a block Saturday morning programming geared toward kids.   NBC has officially named the time block NBC Kids.  NBC kids will show several shows that are currently airing on the Sprout show.  The line-up includes: “The Wiggles,” Sprout’s “Noodle & Doodle,” Jim Henson’s “Pajanimals,” “Poppy Cat,” “Justin Time,” as well as the popular “LazyTown,.”  Is this the beginning of NBC’s venture into their own children’s channel?  Maybe.  Several stations like Nickelodeon and Disney started airing the “junior” version of their shows on certain time blocks of their established stations before venturing out and creating a distinct “junior” station:   Nick Jr. television station has been around for several years, and the Disney Junior station started airing this March.    But, for the time being children can watch NBC Kids on Saturday morning starting July 7th.
