September 22 on Nick Jr.
By Fred Mills
So we’ve been telling you about Nick Jr.’s acclaimed Yo Gabba
Gabba! program for a year now (nevermind that we’ve only been around for three
months…). You know, the educational show aimed at tykes — Sesame Street for pint-sized hipsters — featuring the likes of Biz
Markie, the Aquabats, Smoosh and Mark Mothersbaugh singin’ ‘n’ playin’ ‘n’
beat-boxin’ like nobody’s business. (What? You haven’t been checking our daily Channel Guide that shows each day’s more
notable music-on-TV happenings?!?)
Well, the new season kicks off Sept. 22 at 11:30 a.m. EST,
and check out the roster of talent.
They got musicians: the Roots, Ting Tings, Jimmy Eat World,
Mix Master Mike, and mainstays Markie and Mothersbaugh.
They got comedians: Jack Black, Andy Samberg, Rachel Dratch
and Amy Sedaris.
They even got real actors: Melora Hardin (The Office) and
Jack McBrayer (30 Rock).
Plus an NBA player for some reason: Amare Stoudemire, who no
doubt will impart hard-won wisdom relating to fame, fortune, keeping in shape,
making good grades in school, and keeping it zipped until you’re of legal age,
