Even one (1) phone call or EMail can make a difference. (!) If you can encourage your local public stations to give better times to this quite remarkable program I would remain,
your obedient servant,
PS, TT has wonderful slots in Wash DC, NYNY, LA.

Wish I could provide "comments or suggestions" about Think Tank The Program, but I can't --
I thoroughly enjoy it just exactly as it is.
The only problem is its time slot here in the Chicago area: 4:30 p.m. -- a time when some commuters are commuting, most commuters haven't even started the evening commute, housewives (the 432 remaining) are revving up for dinner, and we retired er persons aren't quite ready to call it a day at 4:30 in terms turning off the day and turning on the news.
Habit, I suppose.
(The news-programming schedule here in the Chicago area for the traditional 5 to 7 p. news- hour slot is as follows: The Jim Lehrer News Hour (PBS Channel 11) is on from 6 to 7, while at the same time, the BBC Evening News (PBS Channel 20) is on from 6 to 6:30. Fareed Zakaria (PBS Channel 20) has an interesting half-hour called "Foreign Exchange" --on at 6:30 p. One wonders if PBS's Scheduling Department (?) ever get together in Conference Room 1 and compare notes...)
So this email is intended to suggest that if you don't get mailbags of comments (as you should), and your computer hasn't shut down owing to the overwhelming response to your program (as it should), it's because, in my view, your delightful half-hour has been given a real graveyard slot. Meantime, thanks again for a thoroughly enjoyable arf-hour.
