Big Bird Would "Live On" If PBS Funds Get Cut

So everyone is up in arms about Mitt Romney killing "Big Bird" after he said, during the debate, that he would cut government funding to PBS. Within a very short time, the "Big Bird" memes went viral. I've seen a ton on Facebook.

But according to Sesame Street Workshop's Sherrie Weston, Big Bird and his Sesame Street buddies would remain unaffected by any cuts since they receive very little funding from PBS. However, they  might survive the loss of the small percentage they receive from PBS, but on what stations would their show air?

Maybe people  who enjoy PBS programmes will step up to the plate and start supporting Public Broadcasting.
