JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): Alright, so the 46th season of Sesame Street starts Saturday, but not on PBS. This time, it's on HBO, there are gonna big changes for Oscar, Big Bird and Cookie Monster. Now you can get the show on mobile devices, it's only going to be half an hour, not an hour, and fewer characters. Also, guess what? Cookie Monster, better diet, maybe some vegan food. 

ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): Are they gonna move away from the left-wing communist --

WILLIAMS: Communist? 

BOLLING: Communist diatribe they put out every single day? 

WILLIAMS: I don't know about that.
