PBS Kids' Show Host Fired for Video.
By Associated Press
Tue Jul 25, 0:58 AM

NEW YORK - The PBS Kids Sprout network has fired the host of "The Good Night Show" after learning she had appeared in videos called "Technical Virgin."

The host, Melanie Martinez, had alerted network officials about one of the videos late last week and she was immediately taken off the air.

"PBS Kids Sprout has determined that the dialogue in this video is inappropriate for her role as a preschool program host and may undermine her character's credibility with our audience," said Sandy Wax, network president.

Airing for three hours each evening, "The Good Night Show" airs soothing stories and cartoons designed to get an audience of 2-to-5-year-olds ready for bed. Each night, Martinez guides a puppet character into dreamland. Martinez is a stage actress and mother of a toddler.

In the two "Technical Virgin" videos _ made before she landed the children's show job _ she spoofs PSAs about how young women can keep their virginity.

PBS Kids Sprout airs children's programming 24 hours a day and is seen in about 20 million of the nation's 110 million television homes. "The Good Night Show" has been temporarily replaced by cartoons while a search is conducted for a new host.

Here's the clip she was fired for.

I remember this from years ago and I don't see the big deal?

My son loves watching this show she was hosting, before bed each night and personally, I was always hoping she would lose these slippers she was always wearing.

As luck would have it, they actually had a segment where she is barefoot and doing Yoga and I didn't even tape it... ARRGGHH!

Well, at least I got my wish... LOL!

so many conflicting conspiracy theories, so little evidence of any.

So why are you responding to this thread now then?

Oh yes, you are also broken up about it.

Sorry pal, but I was up in Vermont for a week, away from TV and News, thankfully.

Save you smug schtick for your republican O'reiley impression threads...

So many fucking tools at this forum. It's no wonder why so many bash it.
