Reddit, PBS Intro User Generated Weekly Television Show

Reddit today announced that it was working with PBS to create a new weekly television news program, Your Week, that’s “powered by you.”

Material for the show will come from hot stories on the reddit front page every week. Meta discussions about that content and the show itself will all take place at

Whereas traditional television new stories end once the show airs, YourWeek — like reddit — will just be the beginning. Throughout the week you’ll be able to share your thoughts on yourweek.reddit and followup with content you think was missed or corrections that should be made.

We’re hoping to get some content directly from you, the reddit community in the final days of this week. We’re curious to hear what you think about lab-grown meat, NFL cheerleaders in Bangalore, and your most boring job – ever. These are just a few of the reddit headlines that are being produced for the pilot.

In other words, it’s sort of the PBS take on Diggnation.

Your Week is also looking for people to contribute remixes of the show theme song. It’s pretty horrifically cheesy, so it could use a remix.
