what even PBS  
Okay, see, now this is what I mean when I say that PBS is terrible at letting me know about programs I'd want to watch - especially if they involve Shakespeare. I happened upon this on the website while I was looking for something on the PBS News Hour page:

Shakespeare's Tomb

So it airs TOMORROW, which means I would totally have missed it if not for a random fluke of the internet search process. Thanks a lot, PBS.

Or when you do find a program, I have to use Search to find out when it is because it's not when it's supposed to be airing.

When my phone had more memory available, I had the App from WGBH where you can watch stuff whenever you want and it has most of the programs on it. Also, PBS.org is usually pretty awesome with stuff, too.

Yes, it is nice that there are so many ways to watch things! It's just odd that I never know when things are airing because PBS fails to advertise for anything that isn't Downton Abbey or the latest Ken Burns documentary. :)

Sometimes, I find the emails helpful because they will mention things 2-3 months in the future.

Sometimes, I just have to scroll through channel guide for all the primetime shows and whether I might want them...which, of course, doesn't work at all during pledge drives.
