Fans of "Reading Rainbow" had until July to raise $1 million to bring the show back for the Web. It took 11 hours.
An emotional LeVar Burton watched as the Kickstarter campaign that he had launched on Wednesday hit the $1 million mark, and then, with tears in his eyes, he thanked the people who had funded it.
"I am overwhelmed," the former "Reading Rainbow" host said into the camera. "Thank you so much. This is going to enable us to really, really, really do a lot of good."
