Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Riley and Todd, siblings who were raised in an orphanage after the death of their parents, long to be adopted. They find a comic book advertisement for Fleemco, an agency that will provide "Replacement" parents or adults to substitute for certain individuals. Brother and sister decide to send in the $1.98 fee in hopes of obtaining parents to replace their lost ones. They acquire an unorthodox pair of Replacement parents, Dick Daring and Agent K. Dick is a former daredevil stuntman and Agent K is a British super-spy. Neither seems to know much about parenting, although their intentions are good. Agent K's highly intelligent automobile, C.A.R., her former spy partner, also joins the household. Their attempts to forge a family and adjust to a new school are both touching and comedic. Riley and Todd discover that they can call Fleemco to request replacement of any adult whom they dislike, who is overly strict, or who is merely uninteresting. The temporary Replacements for teachers, neighbors or other community figures never prove to be as exciting or fun as the siblings had hoped, and are often immature and obnoxious. As things go awry, Riley and Todd learn that they need adult leadership, discipline, role models, order and structure. By the end of each story they are eager to return the Replacement and reinstate the original adult. Stories revolve around issues such as cooperating with household/family rules, taking responsibility, fairness, building self-esteem, and trust. Primary Digital. Note: Program was preempted on 8/20/11 by 49ers football and on 8/27/11 by NASCAR SPRINT. Last telecast on 8/27/11.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Raven, a young teen who has inherited her grandmother's trait of clairvoyance, is a normal, happy and resourceful young woman. However, at times Raven worries that she is a "freak" because of her clairvoyant abilities. She has a younger brother, Cory, age ten. They are typical siblings, with the tension and rivalry that most siblings experience. Raven attends public high school. Both parents are employed outside the home. They are loving parents, and good disciplinarians. Raven is often responsible for the after-school safety and activities of her brother, Cory. Her closest friends are Chelsea and Eddie, who are fiercely committed to environmental issues and sports, respectively. Raven's parents and closest friends know about her "visions" of the immediate future. The premonitions often prompt her to attempt to intervene before trouble occurs. Sometimes Raven's interventions backfire, and at other times the foreseen events come true, bringing embarrassment or sadness. Raven learns valuable lessons from her blunders and transgressions. Thus, the "visions" set up issues that the Core episodes of this series explore. The series uses humor to convey strong, relevant messages about growing up. Some of the issues that are the focus of episodes are sibling rivalry, popularity, loyalty, self-acceptance, dealing with authority (school and parental), honesty, coping with jealousy, and consequences of lying or cheating.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Kuzco, a youth who is heir to the throne of a mythical Andean country, must graduate from Kuzco Academy before he can become the official Emperor of his land. He faces the intellectual, physical and social challenges that all teens face, all the while conscious that his life's work will be to rule fairly and nobly. Kuzco wonders whether being Emperor for the rest of his days will be a pleasure or a trap. In many episodes Kuzco must thwart attempts by the nefarious Yzma and her dimwitted henchman, Kronk, to stop him from doing well in school. If Kuzco fails at his academic requirements Yzma stands a chance to become Empress. Kuzco, who is by nature inclined to take the easy way out of tough situations, struggles to complete his assignments and stay on track. Only if he remains steadfast, studies hard, learns from his mistakes, graduates, and can relate to his citizens at all levels of society, will he ascend the throne and become Emperor. His loyal friend and heart-throb, Malina, an excellent student, attempts to help Kuzco stay out of trouble and achieve his goals. Series episodes explore relevant messages such as coping with peer pressure, respecting authority, taking responsibility, adhering to foster family and school rules, honesty, acceptance of differences, building self-esteem and trust.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Thirteen-year-old Miley Stewart, who recently moved from Tennessee to Malibu, CA, leads a double life. By day, she attends public high school along with her older brother Jackson, but by night, she is emerging pop star "Hannah Montana". Except for her family, only her two best friends, Oliver and Lilly, and her bodyguard know about Miley's career as a singe as she strives to maintain privacy, fearing that her new classmates would treat her very differently if they knew of her stage identity. Miley wears blonde wigs while performing and manages to escape being recognized. Miley's mother died three years before the story begins, so her dad is now a single parent. He has just begun dating again. Miley misses her mother very much. One of the songs that she writes and performs is about the pain of growing up without her mother. Unlike her brother, Miley is a dedicated student. At school, her enemies are Amber and Ashley, two girls who constantly bully Miley. Oliver and Lilly are fiercely protective of their friend. Miley has ordinary teenage insecurities, but remains true to herself, despite the allure of concert life, the limos, parties, and glamorous clothes. This is in no small part due to the solid values that her father, Miley's manager (Billy Rae Cyrus), has imparted. Tension and sibling rivalry do occur, especially when Jackson feels that his talented sister is getting all the attention. Stories examine social issues such as peer pressure, integrity, family rules, jealousy, friendship, loyalty, and issues related to bereavement. Primary Digital.

However, at times Raven worries that she is a "freak" because of her clairvoyant abilities. She has a younger brother, Cory, age ten. They are typical siblings, with the tension and rivalry that most siblings experience. Raven attends public high school. Both parents are employed outside the home. They are loving parents, and good disciplinarians. Raven is often responsible for the after-school safety and activities of her brother, Cory. Her closest friends are Chelsea and Eddie, who are fiercely committed to environmental issues and sports, respectively. Raven's parents and closest friends know about her "visions" of the immediate future. The premonitions often prompt her to attempt to intervene before trouble occurs. Sometimes Raven's interventions backfire, and at other times the foreseen events come true, bringing embarrassment or sadness. Raven learns valuable lessons from her blunders and transgressions. Thus, the "visions" set up issues that the Core episodes of this series explore. The series uses humor to convey strong, relevant messages about growing up. Some of the issues that are the focus of episodes are sibling rivalry, popularity, loyalty, self-acceptance, dealing with authority (school and parental), honesty, coping with jealousy, and consequences of lying or cheating. Primary Digital. Note: Program was preempted on 8/20/11 by 49ers football and on 8/27/11 by NASCAR SPRINT. Last telecast on 8/28/11.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Those episodes of "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" that air on ABC as Core Programming address concerns close to the hearts of older children and tweens and deliver life lessons tailored for that audience. Last telecast on 8/28/11. Our stories take place in a luxury hotel in Boston, where twelve-year-old identical twins Zack and Cody live with their divorced mom, a lounge singer for the Tipton Hotel. The boys attend the local public middle school and are in the same class. One of the twins is polite and shy and excels in academics, while the other, an athlete and extrovert, barely scrapes by in school, due to disinterest and lack of effort, and instead often instigates wacky plans for outwitting hotel authorities, caregivers, and their mother. The boy's mother dates and would like to remarry. Their father is a professional rock musician who is on the road much of the year, but who stays in touch with his boys. This sets up occasional parental "conflicts" about discipline and expectations. Parallel stories involve two teenage girls: heiress London Tipton, whose father owns the hotel, and Maddie, the girl who works after school at the hotel snack bar. Unlike London, Maddie attends a parochial girls' school and comes from a working class family. Both Zack and Cody have crushes on Maddie, who is four years older than they are. Series episodes explore sibling rivalry, conflicts with parents, divorce, household and hotel rules, family income limitations, responsibility, self-esteem, and peer pressure. Primary Digital.
