When Arts & Entertainment became "the Duck Dynasty," my faith in market-based TV evaporated. There is NOTHING worthwhile on the commercial networks anymore. My TV is glued to PBS.

Anyone remember when Bravo was ballet and symphonies? The History channel was often derided as the World War II channel, but at least it was some kind of history. I'll bet they haven't shown a B17 video in years. Even Nat Geo is more interested in pseudoscience than science these days, it seems like. The pull of the market towards the lowest common denominator is intense. Congrats to PBS for standing strong (and to folks like the Annenberg Foundation for making the noncommercial model sustainable).
