Today Show weatherman Al Roker and news correspondent Deborah Roberts (who are married in real life) join Elmo on Sesame Street to help families with young children raise a healthy and emotionally secure child during tough economic times.
Other guests include Jean Chatzky, the financial editor for Today, and Dr. Joshua Coleman, the author of several books about marriage and families.
Donald Faison hosted a separate special for young adults, Your Life, Your Money, following the Sesame Street-based program.
