A public television station bashed by people when they realize the children's programs on there are more intelligent than they are. Also bashed by dumbasses who complain about pledge breaks who don't realize that the other 75% of the time they don't have to sit through commercials. The same people complain about commercials.

Has been the subject of political conflict whenever special advertising interests lobby elected officials into trying to hand the radio/television wave space to commercial television.

Short for Peanut Butter Spoon, a snack mainly used by college students and possibly obsessively fit people when you need a snack but poor shopping habits have left you with nothing but condiments and toppings. As such one is then forced to pull out a spoon, scoop up some peanut butter from the jar, and enjoy that spoonful to the fullest.
