Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Dive Olly Dive offers a collection of boy and girl characters each with their own unique characteristics and strengths. Skid, although something of a bully, comes around in each episode and is never cruel. The team is supportive of one another and lessons of predicting, considering and discovering are cleverly interwoven into an entertaining storyline. Although the series is standard in terms of storytelling, that is, it does not incorporate some of the elements that we know extend a series' power in terms of teaching, Dive Olly Dive offers relatable characters and episodes that are clearly created with the intention of supporting a child's learning. In particular this series supports a child's social development and problem solving skills.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Doki offers fun characters each with their own strengths and weaknesses (therefore offering a broad representation of possible at-home-viewers). The team is supportive of one another and the "world" of Doki and its characters reflects the media landscape of today's child. Although the most supportive programming involves the audience through presentation of material in a way that demands intellectual interaction on the part of the viewer (i.e., encouraging the viewer to assist on -screen characters to solve problems), and this series might benefit from this type of "interaction," Doki does offer enthusiastic characters, real questions, and an "arguably" realist presentation of discovery. Combined, these elements will keep children engaged and support their learning.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. After due review of internal station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee hereby certifies that the station fully complied with the FCC's commercial limits in children's programs, as specified at 47 C.F.R. Section 73.670, with respect to all programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under. On multicast digital channel 2.2, Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures was pre-empted on 11/24 due to technical difficulties. Because it was not a planned pre-emption, no promotional efforts were made to let viewers know it was airing in its second home on 11/25 at 12p CT. On three other occasions, the show aired in its entirety but had technical difficulties as well. On 11/7 and 12/12, the show aired in a video box, rather than full-screen, with weather information on the bottom and side of the screen. On 12/8, a technical error caused the start time to be delayed until 6:14pm. The show then ran in its entirety. Digital Core Programming section - multicast channels: Between 10/1 and 11/3, we only had one multicast digital channel, airing a weekly average of 168 hours of programming/3 hours of core programming. Effective 11/4, we added another multicast digital channel, 2.3 (ION). Our answers to the Digital Core Programming section reflect the averages after 11/4 (336 hours/6 hours). Effective 12/28, ION moved their E/I programs from Sundays to weekdays.
