As schoolkids start hitting the books again, television programmers are back in action too, premiering their new children's programming beginning this week. PBS is betting on the "Bookworm Bunch," a new Saturday programming block. CBS--sluggish on Saturday mornings past--is borrowing from its cable sibling Nickelodeon, which always gets high marks from young viewers.

On Sept. 11, it will also become part of "Disney's One Saturday Morning."

His comments come a week after Sony Pictures Television, which produces the animated series about 10-year-old black militant Huey Freeman and his gangsta-wanna-be younger brother Riley living in the suburbs with their grandfather, said in a press release that the upcoming season "was produced without the involvement of Aaron McGruder, when a mutually agreeable production schedule could not be determined.
