Proposed deletion[edit]

This seems very US-centric. Quite a few these aren't even made in America. It doesn't seem appropriate to have this on the Teletubbies article, for instance. And Sesame Street has been aired in just about every country in the world, as far as I'm aware. Any chance this template could be narrowed to just include the programmes that are actually made by PBS? Flowerparty 18:51, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

I've nominated it for deletion. Please add any comments to the discussion. Flowerparty 02:00, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Template is broken[edit]

The template is broken, as you can see by my addition of text inside the noinclude tags and where it shows up. Night Gyr 17:19, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Fixed. --Jtalledo (talk) 02:01, 10 July 2006 (UTC)


Rainbow Fish etc.[edit]

  • Rainbow Fish is a PBS show.
  • Can we merge the Miss Lori and Hopper shows like PBS KIDS GO and RAGDOLL to a different part.
  • Cyberchase is a PBS KIDS GO show.
  • Roise and Jim is a RAGDOLL show.
  • Look at the PBS KIDS page for other shows that belong here. (talk) 22:38, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Rainbow Fish has never aired on pbs. It aired on HBO Family. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:08, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Can Miss Lori and Hooper use Playhouse Disney — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:16, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
  • PB&Jotter on Disney


Currently this does not categories articles, but rather it includes links to a couple of categories. Should it categorize the articles? davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 06:11, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

...shows created by and funded by local PBS affiliates.[edit]

There is no such thing as a "local PBS affiliate". Broadcast stations normally fall into three classes:

  • Affiliate stations are independent in ownership - the station doesn't own the network; the network provides programming but doesn't own the station. The vast majority of small/medium-sized US commercial stations fit this model.
  • Owned-and-operated stations are owned by the networks, typically in the largest markets (such as WCBS in New York)
  • PBS member stations reverse this model; the network is owned collectively by the PBS stations. As such, station and network are not independent of each other in ownership as an "affiliate station" and network would be.

The term "PBS affiliate" should therefore be replaced with "PBS station". -- (talk) 17:28, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Removed information[edit]

I've just removed a lot of information that that was added to a request that was previously completed.[1] To the IP adding this information, there is no point modifying a previously completed request, regardless of whether it was fulfilled or denied or, as was the case here, the requested information was already included in the template. You need to make a new request, stating explicitly what you want changed, and not simply duplicate or modify an existing request. --AussieLegend (talk) 00:37, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

New Episodes[edit]

This template needs to be redesigned so as to show which programs are making new episodes (Arthur, FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman, etc.) and which programs are permanently ended (Dragon Tales, Clifford the Big Red Dog, etc.) --Noah¢s (Talk) 01:37, 16 July 2010 (UTC) ITV raj


ZOOM is no longer airing on any local PBS station or PBS Kids Sprout, and therefore, should have the asterisk (which states that ZOOM does air on a majority of PBS stations or on Sprout) removed. While there is no single "live" reference for this statement (There was once a statement from ZOOM's website in the Z-mail section that proves this, but it's gone as it is updated weekly, removing all previous versions. Believe me, I already checked the Wayback Machine, only goes up to August 1, 2008, but it was posted in mid-2009.), it can be observed by looking at a variety of PBS stations' websites and viewing their schedule.

Fates of Big And Small & Lingo show[edit]

By extensive resaerch on the PBS website, I have found that "Lomax" is not showing on a huge majority of PBS-affiliated stations, nor on PBS Sprout. It may have been cancelled since it was aired orginally on December of 2008, but it is still seen on the PBS Kids website. For "It's a Big Big World", the series IS cancelled as there is no longer an active link on the PBS Kids website; in addition, the page having the show says that it is cancelled. This is just to give info on the fate of the shows and to update the template. Excelsior30 (talk) 22:04, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

There's a minor error for Cyberchase. Looking at the source, it looks like it's just missing a single quote at the end of the line. As it appears now, it looks like the show is called "Cyberchase'" (talk) 20:45, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
