        Odd. Maybe parental controls to block out channels?

        Or parents complaining too much to the networks? :? Always something..

        That is a little strange..

            Guess the Family Guy FCC song was right.

                  Wow! I never thought that could happen! I'd be so pissed if it ever happened to me though, considering I pay money for that shit! However maybe not if it were a public access/free channel... Still, I don't like how the FCC are a bunch of censor-happy asshats.

                    The Constitution is dead. This is only the next step in the government "controlling" our lives.

                              My parents have cable tv, every weekday (maybe on weekends, never found out for sure)the local UPN (at the time) would have that same message. Apparently The FCC doesnt allow certain programs to air during certain times, or the same programm to air on different channels at the same time,etc etc. So there is probly a logical explination, but if you want to be a conspiracy theorist, and belive that the "establishment" or "the man" is trying to rule your lives, what you wear, what you do, go for it.

                                  Oh well, I guess you can't watch TV now. I know, how about enjoying that beautiful day, or maybe reading a book.

                                      hmm back in May I was in south GA and "The Black Family Channel" was like that, turns out the network was terminated on April 30th, and that was the signal being broadcast.

                                      When we left the motel, we left it trashed and left the tv on that channel wiith the akarm clock ringing

                                        More than likely, this is what happened. Stop freaking out. XD
