Block Programming
Block programming is the arrangement of programs on radio or television so that those of a particular genre, theme, or target audience are grouped together. Block programming involves scheduling a series of related shows which are likely to attract and hold a given audience for a long period of time.[1] Notable examples of overt block programming were NBC's Thursday evening "Must See TV" lineup, which included two hours of sitcoms and one hour of ER, and Channel 4's "T4" program which often ran sitcoms like Friends back-to-back for an hour or more. Reruns on cable television are often assembled into similar blocks to fill several hours of generally little-watched daytime periods

Block (programming)
In computer programming, a block or code block is a lexical structure of source code which is grouped together. Blocks consist of one or more declarations and statements. A programming language that permits the creation of blocks, including blocks nested within other blocks, is called a block-structured programming language. Blocks are fundamental to structured programming, where control structures are formed from blocks. The function of blocks in programming is to enable groups of statements to be treated as if they were one statement, and to narrow the lexical scope of objects such as variables, procedures and functions declared in a block so that they do not conflict with those having the same name used elsewhere

Public Radio
Public broadcasting involves radio, television and other electronic media outlets whose primary mission is public service. In many countries of the world, funding comes from governments, especially via annual fees charged on receivers. In the United States, public broadcasters may receive some funding from both federal and state sources, but generally most of their financial support comes from underwriting by foundations and businesses (ranging from small shops to corporations), along with audience contributions via pledge drives. The great majority operate as private not-for-profit corporations.[citation needed] Public broadcasting may be nationally or locally operated, depending on the country and the station. In some countries a single organization runs public broadcasting. Other countries have multiple public-broadcasting organizations operating regionally or in different languages

Strip Programming
Strip programming or stripping is a technique used for scheduling television and radio programming to ensure consistency and coherency. Television or radio programs of a particular style (such as a television series) are given a regular time slot during the week, so that it appears as a strip straight across the weekly schedule. For example, radio and television broadcasters may program a news program at rush hours every day, or at least every weekday. Strip programming is used to deliver consistent content to targeted audiences. Broadcasters know or predict the times at which certain demographics will be listening to or watching their programs and play them at that time. Most television dayparts outside of prime time use strip programming five days a week (with some select programs also being stripped on one day of the weekend, or both), with the same programs being broadcast every day at the same time to target specific demographics

Nick Jr.
Nick Jr. is an American pay television channel run by ViacomCBS through its domestic networks division's Kids and Family Group. It launched on September 28, 2009 as a spin-off of Nickelodeon's long-running preschool programming block of the same name, and primarily targets children aged 2 to 7. The channel's lineup features a mix of originally-produced programming, along with series previously and concurrently aired on the Nickelodeon block and its previous iterations; because of the two entities, Nick Jr. is sometimes disclaimed on-air as "the Nick Jr. channel" to avoid confusion, especially at times of day where both services are carrying preschool programming. The channel replaced Noggin, which was relaunched as a streaming service in 2015 and acts as a separate sister brand. Noggin's programming is distinct from the Nick Jr
