T.V. For Babies

"And last week, a channel called BabyFirstTV, initially available to DirecTV subscribers, became the first 24-hour cable and satellite network to offer programming aimed at viewers between 6 months and 3 years old. Before advocacy groups take their shot BabyFirstTV, perhaps they should give a thought — quickly, before Viacom launches MTV Zygote and Nickelodeon Embryo — to the poor programmers charged with developing such content. Toddlers may be good at communicating what they want in a sippee cup, but they are not nearly as effective at conveying what they want in a television show: they simply will not sit still at focus groups, and are more likely to masticate extensive research questionnaires than to fill them out."
