    Kids' show host fired over 'Virgin' video

    The PBS Kids Sprout network has fired the host of "The Good Night Show" after learning she had appeared in videos called "Technical Virgin."

    The host, Melanie Martinez, had alerted network officials about one of the videos late last week and she was immediately taken off the air.

    "PBS Kids Sprout has determined that the dialogue in this video is inappropriate for her role as a preschool program host and may undermine her character's credibility with our audience," said Sandy Wax, network president.

    Airing for three hours each evening, "The Good Night Show" airs soothing stories and cartoons designed to get an audience of 2-to-5-year-olds ready for bed. Each night, Martinez guides a puppet character into dreamland. Martinez is a stage actress and mother of a toddler.

    In the two "Technical Virgin" videos -- made before she landed the children's show job -- she spoofs PSAs about how young women can keep their virginity.

    Belive it or not, I actually care. Mini Mucus and I watch the goodnight shows for about 30 minutes before he goes to bed... sure I'd like to watch Adult Swim, but he just doen't get the dick jokes Family Guy is so famous for.

    Anyways, she seemed right for the show, to bad she got canned.

    This is what she got fired for. Funny, but I dont know how they had grounds to fire her over this.

    Did you see the comment about the contraception method being "suggested" hardly being foolproof?
