Please, neighbor, save Mister Rogers

A quiet move to “save” that quiet pubTV legendary show, “Mister Rogers Neighborhood,” has sprung up on the Internet. Save the Mister Rogers Neighborhood Campaign, according to the website, was organized by Brian Linder, a father of twin toddlers from Columbia, S.C., who wanted his children to be able to see a show he grew up watching daily. The show hasn’t been discontinued; last September its distribution changed. PBS now offers the show weekly to allow room for more PBS KIDS’ new series on its daily feed, according to PBS Engage. A Facebook page linked to Linder’s efforts is up to nearly 7,000 members.
