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. One or more episodes of children's programming that was preempted during the quarter was not rescheduled. The Digital core Programming Summary section of this report would not permit the station to include preemption reports for such unrescheduled preemptions, and FCC Staff has advised that no preemption report for such unrescheduled episodes is necessary. This station, like many other NBC Television Network affiliates, experienced difficulty during Third Quarter in airing and rescheduling its children's E/I programs, largely as a result of the Olympics which were aired live on our station. the NBC Television Network notified the FCC by letter that stations may need additional regulatory flexibility during the quarter to meet their children's E/I obligations. Astroblast - NBC had its final show 7/2/16. Terrific Trucks - NBC is its replacement, the show was scheduled to begin 7/16/16 but because of sports, it first aired 7/3/16. Travel Thru History - MeTV and Mystery Hunters - MeTV aired their last episodes for the quarter on 8/20/16.
