Best Televison Station (2011)

PBS SoCal

Now that KCET has dropped its PBS programming in favor of awkwardly dubbed Japanese news, Al Jazeera broadcasts and primetime British crime dramas, PBS SoCal (forever known as KOCE-TV) is the only place where you can find vital programming such as Frontline, POV and Independent Lens, as well as perennial favorites such as The American Experience, Great Performances and Austin City Limits. If you want to watch local talking heads scour Orange County's political landscape for divisive commentary, there's Real Orange and Inside OC With Rick Reiff. Consider it the last stand of boob-tube high culture inside OC.
