Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. FAMILY STYLE with Chef Jeff does not lay out its learning objectives and it doesn't have to - it has them throughout the program. In both tone and content, Family Style with Chef Jeff leaves target audience (ages 13-16) with critical information about health and health literacy and models for food preparers, food preparation and the food itself. The young person in the kitchen immediately becomes an honorary chef and is so addressed by the host. It is a show that proves a cooking program can be a genuine asset for education and information.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. ASTROBLAST, based on the book series by author and illustrator Bob Kolar, is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. Five animal characters and one three-eyed octopus of unknown derivation populate the station. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament needing a solution. While these predicaments take place in a fantasy environment, the issues and resolutions resonate for a preschool audience. Through comedy and zippy action, our target audience sees how the characters learn lessons for practical living such as how to keep track of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up when you have made a mess, rebound from a failure or an embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. THE CHICA SHOW features a five-year-old baby chick that spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shops one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chicas nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy-eared rabbit, and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. Chicas parents were formerly entertainers in the vaudeville tradition and they regale the audience with stories and songs from their theatrical past. They enjoy and indulge Chica, who sometimes acts younger than her age and gets into all kinds of predicaments. Kelly uses fantasy play to transform herself, Chica, Bunji, and Stitches into animated characters in another universe, who are struggling with a problem similar to the one Chica experienced in the Coop. Without fail, they find the problem can be solved and they carry that knowledge back to the Coop to use on another day.

Led by Captain Fleeker, the research team consists of an astronaut Floogal, Flo and a junior Floogal, Boomer. Together they discover that the mundane (ice cubes and umbrellas for example) is the basis for transformative experiences that help us all better understand the world they (and we) inhabit.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. TERRIFIC TRUCKS is a live-action series that follows the exploits of five self-driving, heavy-duty construction trucks. They include Tork, the dump truck, Stotz, the flatbed, Dug, the digger, Blinker, the mini-digger, and Sparky, the front-end loader. The trucks reside in a fully-equipped truck yard/rock quarry and work as a team on various building projects that require planning, collaboration and implementation. Each truck brings specific skills and a distinct personality to the group. They get challenging job assignments from Mr. Bill Board, a digital outdoor screen that outlines and diagrams the problem to be solved. By allocating the role each truck will perform during the project, the group merges those unique skills to fulfill their respective assignments. Unexpected problems that could compromise their success-- such as the weather, broken truck parts, or personal conflicts between the trucks--- are addressed and overcome so the job can be completed.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. STATE TO STATE -- Americans are famously terrible about geography. The last Roper Geographic Literacy Poll (2006) showed only half of young Americans could identify New York State on a map. Less than that could find Ohio. Perhaps part of the problem was that there was no television program that entertained while educating about the nations states. There is now! STATE TO STATE from Bellum Entertainment blends maps, history and facts with eye-catching visuals and clever narratives that move quickly through some of the very interesting geography in our diverse country.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. CORE PROGRAMMING: On July 2, 2016, NBC Kids aired six shows returning from the previous quarter: Floogals, Ninas World, Ruff-Ruff, Tweet and Dave, Astroblast, Chica Show, and Noodle and Doodle. On July 9, 2016, Astroblast left the schedule, and a new show, Terrific Trucks, made its premiere and remained on the schedule with the five other shows until September 24, 2016, the last Saturday of the quarter. Due to the Olympics and other sports programming, the NBC Kids line-up was preempted a total of forty two times during the quarter, however all shows were rescheduled in compliance with the Children's Television Act regulations. Please refer to the Digital Core Programming Summary for details of each show. Animal Exploration is normally considered Core programming; however, it was preempted seven times due to NBC Sports coverage . As a result it was not included in the calculation for total core hours. From July 2 to August 20, 2016, Antenna TV aired the same eight shows from the previous quarter; Animal Atlas, Safari Tracks, Coolest Places, State to State, Family Style, Animal Atlas, On the Spot and Safari Tracks. On August 27, 2016, Family Style left the schedule, and two new shows, Get Wild and Wild World, made their premiere and remained on the schedule with the six other shows until September 24, 2016, the last Saturday of the quarter. The line-up remained unchanged from 9-11am but programming changed from 11am-12:30pm -- an additional run of On the Spot and The Coolest Places were added at 11am and 11:30am; Get Wild and Wild World ran at 12pm and 12:30pm. All ten shows were developed specifically for a target audience composed of children ages 13-16.
