Children's Programming Schedule Swap

With the school year coming to an end for most local families, your weekday schedule is probably about to change. We understand – our weekday schedule is about to change too! PBS has made some alterations to our weekly children’s programming line-up and we wanted to make sure you knew what the changes were going to be. Below is a list of the changes for CET and ThinkTV16. The times and programs not listed will stay on the current schedule and there are not swaps on the weekend days just yet.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

 

CET

6am – Sid the Science Kid instead of Clifford the Big Red Dog

7am – Wild Kratts instead of Arthur

8:30am – Curious George instead of Cat in the Hat

11:30am – Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood instead of Super Why!

12pm – Dinosaur Train instead of Sid the Science Kid

12:30pm – Dinosaur Train instead of Thomas and Friends

2:30pm – Cat in the Hat instead of Dinosaur Train

I wanted to know why Word girl has disappeared, since it is one of my child's favorite programs? Why have two Wildkratts instead? Please explain.

Hello! I checked with Jim Wiener, our program director, and he had the following information for you: PBS aburting changed the scheduling, doubling up on a few of the higher profile series (e.g. DINOSAUR TRAIN at 12 & 12:30pm, WILD KRATTS at 5 & 5:30pm). This has resulted in a few series being taken out of their weekday strip like WORD GIRL and PEG + CAT.

WORD GIRL can still be seen M-F 11am on ThinkTV 14.1 and every night at 8pm on ThinkTV 14.3 (or TW 985). Depending on where you live in Southwest Ohio, you should be able to get ThinkTV's 14 stations. (ThinkTV and CET are the same organization). I hope this helps and sorry for the inconvenience!

Sorry to see Sid the Science Kid at 6 am when kids will not be likely to view it. My 5 year old grandson really likes it.

Thanks for the comment. I know this isn't a perfect solution, but Sid the Science Kid can still be seen Sunday 10am on CET 48.1, and M-F 3pm on ThinkTV 14.3. Depending on where you live in Southwest Ohio, you likely can get the ThinkTV14 channel. CET and ThinkTV are the same organization. Hope this helps and sorry! The change from PBS was extremely abrupt.

I don't see Thomas anywhere on the wekday schedule. My grandson who I watch twice a week loves Thomas. The 12:30 timeslot was great since it finished right before his afternoon nap. Will Thomas be returning at all to weekday am or afternoon programming?
