Don't forget that all TV shows are are a means to rope you into watching
commercials. Otherwise there would be no such thing as "free" TV. It's
what the web has been trying to immitate for a few years now.

The only difference on PBS is that "advertisers" are now called
"underwriters". I've actually seen now that they have full 30 second ads
on PBS for their "underwriters". I think the one I saw was for Dodge Ram
or something.
