Is Public Television Still Relevant?

Over the weekend, a story in the arts section of the New York Times put forth the argument that public television is less necessary today than ever before. PBS programming — Antiques Roadshow, Nova — feels musty, the story argues, and it's far less important in the scheme of things than it was when there were just three broadcast networks directing the course of TV. Now, on the other hand:

"Cable has changed all that. There are not only countless more channels to chose from now, but many offer the kind of stuff that in the past you could see only on public TV, and in at least some instances they do it better."

Are any of you die-hard PBS viewers? What shows do you watch? And do you think the programming still has its place in the 100+ channel, digital cable world?
