Regular? No. If I see something of interest in my listings I'll watch it or DVR it for later.

Re: Any Regular Viewers Of PBS?

I used to watch PBS frequently, as the only other show I would watch was Star Trek and news. But I've not had cable since '95, couldn't pick up broadcast well enough with rabbit ears after moving to my current apartment in 2006, and can't pick up anything at all now after everything went digital.

I watch the NewsHour five days a week, and other shows, films, and specials as interested.

Your PBS still shows Doctor Who?
It's the new Doctor Who. They're running through series six right now. They used to run through the Tom Baker era every Saturday night but stopped about 10 years ago.
Interesting. My PBS hasn't shown a Doctor Who episode in 20 years.

Newshour is the only place in the USA to get actual news.

Re: Any Regular Viewers Of PBS?

If there's one regret I have when it comes to PBS, it's that it's too late to discover Downton Abby. I hear how great that show is and it's already in the third season so it's too late to jump in now.

I watch Masterpiece Classic and Masterpiece Mystery regularly. I will DVR them when they conflict with the Walking Dead.

I enjoy Nature, and I love to watch the Last of the Summer Wine.

No, it isn't. You can catch up via Amazon.

Years ago was another story but my local prefers Lawrence Welk over Red Dwarf these days. I like the Nova/science type shows, I just watched one on drones, and some of the history stuff.

Re: Any Regular Viewers Of PBS?

Grew up watching PBS. Sesame Street, Mister Rodgers Neighborhood, 321 Contact... only some of the shows that I grew up watching on PBS. Still watch PBS, Antiques Roadshow, Bill Moyers journal, Downton Abby (the acting is good), Inspector Morse, etc. It's worth having around.

PBS... it's free and no ads
Except for the ad at the beginning of most shows and the pledge drives, both of which could technically be considered ads.
PBS has also started inserting short ads in the middle of some shows too, such as Great Performances, but it's generally just in the middle of something over two hours long.

Maybe, but I don't have Amazon Prime. Wasn't thinking about getting it either.

Maybe you can catch up via marathon? PBS did marathons leading up to series 3. Perhaps they will do that again?
