A fond memory of mine from younger days was Sunday nights on WTTW (Channel 11 in Chicago). 10PM was Monty Python's Flying Circus, 10:30 Dave Allen At Large, and 11 PM was Doctor Who.
When I was in college, Dave Allen got replaced by a pretty good local show called Wild Chicago, and then after Doctor Who ended production (originally), it fell apart.
Now living in Texas, it's good to see Nova, Charlie Rose, and American Experience. They showed M.P's. F.C. here for a bit, but dropped it. Tavis Smiley's also quite welcome, as is Frontline.
