TLC has made a terrible decision by not pulling the plug on this show immediately. TLC in its desire for profits has lost any and all respect as a so called educational channel . I have cancelled my Comcast Cable and am donating that payment to PBS . My children will watch Sesame Street as I did as a child, a program that is entertaining, educational and has stood the test of time. I for one will not spend my hard earned dollars on any products or sponsors of this program or TLC. Those parents will not be paying for their lifestyle with one penny from my family.
