A daily Christian variety show hosted by Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, along with fellow Christian Broadcasting Network alumnus "Uncle" Henry Harrison. "PTL" stood for "Praise The Lord", but Paul and Jan Crouch of TBN sued them (for their show was called Praise The Lord), so it was amended to the warm-and-fuzzy "People That Love", and the show's name was changed to Jim and Tammy. Under either name, it was a show so bad, it was good.

The broadcast arm of an elaborate scheme to swindle millions of people. It worked for quite awhile. The most laughable feature was the hideous Tammy Faye's egregious singing, drowned out to the extent possible by a large band and a corps of backup singers. She could also blubber on cue, shaking all her bangles as she sobbed.
