How’s that economy working?  A dozen staff members of the venerable PBS children’s show Sesame Street were layed-off yesterday.  The cuts came from the New York City office.

The recession also cost Sesame Street 60 employees in 2009.

Officials from the Sesame Street Workshop – the official name for the company that produces the TV show – are calling the moves a “shift in resources”.

Debuting in the summer of 1969, Sesame Street continues to be on the PBS schedule even as it’s total popularity declines;  Current television ratings place Sesame Street behind newer shows on cable television.
