    Sesame Street [#4261H] The Shape O' Bots Telly, Elmo, and Rosita are playing Shape-O-Bots, robots that actually transform into shapes to help people. Andy, a guy in need of shapes, rushes in and explains that he needs an octagon to help stop people from crashing into him. Telly tries to transform into an octagon with eight sides and eight angles, but changes into a triangle with three sides and three angles instead. Rosita gives it a try and successfully transforms into an octagon, which Andy uses as a stop sign to stop people from running into him. Andy leaves but soon returns, this time in need of a pentagon, a shape with five sides and five angles. He explains that he is a baseball coach and needs a home plate, which is shaped like a pentagon, so his players won't slide right into him. The Shape-O-Bots do their thing and, once again, Telly changes into a triangle. Elmo is able to help, though, and transforms into a pentagon. Andy now returns one last time needing a rhombus, a shape with four sides and four angles, for the King of Rhombuses, who is missing his. Telly tries to transform into a rhombus, but, once again, winds up as a triangle. Rosita notices that a rhombus is actually two triangles stuck together. Chris suggests that since Telly hit his button one time to become a triangle, maybe hitting it two times will turn him into a rhombus. It works! Everyone is happy - especially the Shape-O-Bots. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2414H] January 18, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    NEWS PANEL:
    With preparations underway in Washington, D.C. for Monday's historic Presidential Inauguration taking place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Obama administration took a shot at federal gun control policy. Comprehensive immigration reform is also being tackled, with the Republican Party looking to expand its reach to the increasingly diverse electorate. KQED's Scott Shafer reports from Washington on how California lawmakers are hoping to guide legislation.
    Guests: Scott Shafer, KQED Public Radio; Carla Marinucci and Debra Saunders, San Francisco Chronicle.
    GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN - In an exclusive interview, Gov. Brown talks about his plans for shaping California's future. With a balanced budget in hand and the bold declaration that the state's prisons are no longer in a state of emergency, he talks with PBS NewsHour correspondent Spencer Michels about what's next: better funding for schools, improving gun control, and pushing through high speed rail and water projects. The governor also deflects the notion that he's thinking about his legacy.

    Washington Week [#5229H] In this last week of his first term, President Obama rolled out the biggest US plan to confront gun violence and strengthen gun-control laws in generations. The sweeping proposal includes increased enforcement of existing gun laws, universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, and improved mental health services.
    The political battle over gun rights has intensified since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December. Recent polls show the majority of Americans favor more stringent gun laws that would close sales loopholes at gun shows and limit high-capacity magazines. The National Rifle Association (NRA) insists the president's plan is an encroachment of their constitutional right to bear arms and says it is prepared for "the fight of the century." < br />In 2009 Barack Obama came into office with soaring approval ratings and an abundance of optimism calling for "a new era of responsibility" in the face of the nation's economic crisis. After a long downturn, the economy is getting stronger. Healthcare reform is the law of the land. But the president has not fulfilled all his first-term promises. Unemployment remains high. The Guantanamo Bay detention prison remains open. And any hopes of fostering bipartisanship seem to have disappeared in a nation that seems to be more politically divided.
    Gwen Ifill will get analysis of President Obama's first-term successes and setbacks and will look ahead to his second-term priorities with: Peter Baker of The New York Times, John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News. Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report, and Charles Babington of the Associated Press.

    Best of Laugh-In Rowan And Martin's Laugh-in was an NBC comedy-variety program which changed television as it became an important training ground for a generation of young writers and comic talent. From 1968 until 1973, Laugh-in frequently was seen by 50 million viewers. It snared the flamboyance of the era. Its anarchic energy, and its pop aesthetic, combined the black-out comedy of the vaudeville tradition with a 1960s-style "happening," psychedelic costumes, graphics, graffiti, outrageous characters, and a new political awareness became of the most popular shows of all time. duration 1:25:22   STEREO TVPG
