Living with Children: Exciting TV shows can overstimulate a sick child

Q: My 6-year-old daughter watched too many episodes of a certain TV show when she was sick and now she doesn't want to go to sleep at night because she is having scary thoughts related to the show. She will come out of her room again and again complaining of these thoughts (mostly before she has gone to sleep ... rarely in the middle of the night) and want to be tucked back in. How would you recommend handling this?
