Prime Afternoons: All your PBS favorites, in the daytime

Miss a show in the evening? Enjoy some of our highest-rated primetime evening shows earlier in the day during Prime Afternoons.

Every weekday from 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., catch “Antiques Roadshow,” “Nature,” “Nova,” “Frankie Drake Mysteries” and more.

“Prime Afternoons is a really nice way to share the quality PBS programming that we know people love and reach viewers who prefer to watch TV during a different time of the day,” said Tiffany Khan, director of annual giving.

On Mondays, look for dramas like “Frankie Drake Mysteries” (2:30 p.m.) and “Shakespeare & Hathaway” (3:30 p.m.)

Tuesdays bring “Antiques Roadshow” at 1:30 p.m., followed by “Midsomer Murders” at 2:30 p.m.

Wednesdays are for history like “Finding Your Roots” (1:30 p.m.), “Eyes on the Prize” (2:30 p.m. through June) and Ken Burns series like “The Roosevelts” (2:30 p.m. starting July 7).

On Thursdays and Fridays, enjoy science and nature programming like “Nature” (Thursdays at 1:30 p.m) “Nova” (Fridays at 1:30 p.m.) and miniseries like “Rivers of Life” (mini-marathon on June 17), “Mysteries of Mental Illness” (2:30 p.m. on June 24 and 25) and “Wonders of Mexico” (Thursdays at 2:30 p.m., starting July 1).
