PBS Isn't 'Shucking Around' With New Ad Campaign
Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, Meet the Tanners. One of these things is not like the other.
In a new ad campaign, PBS made reality TV junkies blush by three creating fake trailers, all of which conclude with the message "The fact that you thought this was a real show says a lot about the state of TV. Support quality programming." But the truly sad reality here is that these three shows would likely get better ratings than the station's educational programming.
