Didn't it fill your head? Didn't it entertain? Did you feel alive at the end of it?

Alternatives to Dora The Explorer?

My daughter is mad for Dora The Explorer. I think it's a good enough program for her if she's going to be watching TV; we get involved and she doesn't just vegetate in front of it. That said, the repetition is doing our heads in. What are some alternative programs that she might get as much out of but will give her Mum and me a little variety?

I'm not interested in viewing the commercials; I'm more interested in constructing bipartite co-occurrence networks between television programs. For example, I want to analyze what commercials are paired up with what other commercials (in that they air for the same shows), how many commercials share a given pair of programs, etc. -- and then making some inferences from the network.

Script format for :30 commercials?

Script format for :30 commercials?I've been asked by a local company to write scripts based upon concepts I've given them for :30 commercial spots to air on local cable.
