Comments About Charlie Rose

Received December 15, 2015 from TX

Chalie's programs are so strong and current. Why is it shown so late? We have Dish so can record any show including the PBS Charlie Rose and CBS Morning Show. We have friends who do not have the benefit of cable, satellite or just DVR. They will stay up until 1, 2, or 3 a.m. in order to see the night time program. Why not earlier for Charlie?


Note from CPB:  The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) did not provide funding to Charlie Rose: The Week. Additionally, CPB is prohibited from interfering in programming decisions including broadcast schedules. For more information please contact your local station.

Praise for Sit and Be Fit

Voicemail received December 16, 2015 from NC

Hi my name is JXXX NXXXX I live in Oak Island, NC I’m calling to let you know that I very much appreciate Sit and Be Fit. I’ve been working with it now for about three months, it’s done wonders for me, I’ve lost weight, and I’ve toned up pretty good. The reason I wanted to speak with you is because PBS here has apparently stopped carrying the recent Sit and Be Fit episodes. They have her from 2008 and 2009 but recently I was getting 2014 and 2015, her exercises then are good but I need something more like she was doing in her later years. If there is anyone that I can speak with about this please give me a call. My number is XXX-XXX-XXXX, thank you very much.
