NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2015 — Still in shock over HBO’s deal to grab “Sesame Street” from PBS, the week began with a follow-up on the big story from the week before. The week also saw a mini-revival of interest in Morton Downey Jr., thanks to a documentary on CNN. TNT premiered a new cop show set in the 1960s — “Public Morals” — and I ended the week with a reconsideration of a courtroom drama from the 1950s, the incomparable “Perry Mason.” Read all five of last week’s MediaPost TV blogs with these links:
