Following uproar over the exits of 40+ year Sesame Street residents Bob McGrath, Emilio Delgado and Roscoe Orman, Sesame Workshop CEO Jeffrey D. Dunn apologized for a “misunderstanding” about their roles, and said the trio might return. “In our latest season, the story lines written did not include appearances by these three actors and we certainly could have done a better job of communicating with them about our ongoing episode plans,” said Dunn, adding that he is working out how to “best adapt their talents to the current content needs,” and new half-hour format. The iconic children’s show started airing on HBO in January after 45 years on PBS.

The FCC has “no authority” to ban Comcast from charging more to broadband customers who opt not to be targeted for advertising, said Comcast in a filing, as the agency considers a proposal aimed at consumer privacy protection. While FCC chairman Tom Wheeler has said that customers who want more privacy might have to pay more, two weeks ago a group of lawmakers petitioned the FCC, saying pay-for-privacy models run counter to Americans’ right to privacy and are unfair to the disadvantaged. Argues Comcast, “A bargained-for exchange of information for service is a perfectly acceptable and widely used model throughout the U.S. economy, including the Internet ecosystem, and is consistent with decades of legal precedent and policy goals related to consumer protection and privacy.”

In the Fox earnings call Wednesday, co-executive chairman Lachlan Murdoch dove right into the circumstances under which his father, co-executive chairman Rupert Murdoch, has taken over Fox News following the exit of Roger Ailes, who left under a cloud of sexual harassment accusations. “Throughout this process we have moved quickly and decisively to protect the business, to protect its employees, and to protect the unique and important voice Fox broadcasts,” said the younger Murdoch. “There is no one more dedicated or more able to transition Fox News to new leadership than its founder. As acting CEO he joins an existing team that is extraordinarily strong and equally devoted to its success.”

ESPN’s Tom Jackson is retiring after 29 years. “I have been blessed in my adult life to work for two companies, the Denver Broncos and ESPN, to do two things that I love  play football and talk about football,” said Jackson, whose assignment covering the Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement this weekend will be his last for the sports net.

On his way in to the ESPN family is Jordan Rodgers, winner of season 12 of ABC’s The Bachelorrette. Rodgers, a former Vanderbilt QB and brother of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rogers, will offer football commentary for the SEC Network, covering the Southeastern Conference. ESPN SVP Stephanie Druley said it was his “intelligence and passion for the game” that won Rodgers the job, not his scoring the final reality show rose.

Donald Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson, mocked on Twitter after a discussion with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in which she blamed President Obama and Hillary Clinton for the death of Capt. Humayun Khan, a tragedy that occurred during the presidency of  George W. Bush, took to the CNN airwaves again on Wednesday to admit that her “timeline” was off. The slain war hero’s father, Khizr Khan, had angered Trump with a stirring speech at the Democratic National Convention that criticized the GOP presidential candidate. Pierson’s gaffe led to a Twitter frenzy with the hashtag #KatrinaPiersonHistory and jokes like, “Were it not for President Obama’s failed policies, Abraham Lincoln would still be alive.”

Dark days are over for Dish and the NFL Network. Dish dropped the NFL Network and NFL RedZone in mid-June in a carriage dispute, but the two have reached a multi-year agreement. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

USA canceled Donny! after one season. In its premiere following an episode of Chrisley Knows Best last November, the comedy series starring ad exec/TV personality Donny Deutsch lost two-thirds of its lead-in.

Giving the audience easy access to past episodes of series is key to gaining new viewers, suggested NBC’s president of research and media development Alan Wurtzel at TCA. In fact, 72 percent of TV viewers surveyed said they were more likely to start watching a returning series this fall if they could catch up on demand or online. “This is what people want,” said Wurtzel. “We have to figure out a way to give it to them.”

Would you be more likely to start watching a show you hadn’t seen before, if you could easily catch up on prior seasons? Let us know in the new Cynopsis poll: http://cynopsis.com/poll/

NBC is easing new viewers into returning comedy Superstore with an original show following the first night of the Olympics that serves as a “bonus stand-alone episode,” not tied to the season one cliffhanger. The storyline picks up when the official season two premieres Thursday, September 22.

NBC’s Blindspot, moving from 10p to 8p for season two, will be a little more family friendly. “We’re not going to shoot anyone in the head anymore,” promised creator Martin Gero. And season one plot twists will be tied up in a way that makes the show accessible to new viewers. Not only will Jane Doe’s name be revealed in episode one, but the audience will learn “what the plan is and who the real Jane is,” said Gero.

Archie Panjabi, joining Blindspot for its sophomore year, was tight-lipped about rumored bad blood on The Good Wife set. “I loved playing the role of Kalinda,” said Panjabi of her time on the legal drama. “I had such a great time…In terms of anything that happened on The Good Wife, I think it’s only respectful to let it stay on The Good Wife. It was time for me for many reasons to unzip the boots and step into another show.”

Harry Connick Jr. has apparently been taking notes during his years as a talk show guest. The musician, who is awaiting the run of his own talker, Harry, on 17 Fox-owned stations nationwide, told TCA attendees he’s hoping to skip the usual pre-interview of guests as much as possible. “There’s this undercurrent of rehearsal or pre-planning that happens,” explained Connick Jr. “I tell all of the publicists and all of the people that are going to be on the show, man, if you don’t want to do a pre-interview, it’s my job to know everything there is to know about you.” Eric Strangle, an EP on Harry who was a head writer on Late Show with David Letterman, said Connick Jr.’s just preaching what he’s practiced: “You could tell when he would be sitting up here on late night television, you could see that he was thinking and reacting, not following the pre-interview.”
