Why don’t you want to be my neighbor anymore?

Friday, August 22, 2008

PBS is rolling back broadcasts of the children's television series "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," which stopped airing in 2001. But for some cardigan-wearing fans young and old, this is not a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Guest: Brian Linder, creator of the website, SaveMrRogers.com, and father of twin one-and-a-half-year-old girls, and Dade Hayes, author of “Anytime Playdate: Inside the Preschool Entertainment Boom, or, How Television Became My Baby’s Best Friend.” Hayes is also an editor at Variety, and a dad of a 5-year-old girl and a 17-month-old son.
