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. On September 30, 2017, Wilderness Vet-NBC(10/1/17), Journey with Dylan Dryer-NBC(10/8/17), Naturally Danny Seo-NBC(10/15/17) , Give-NBC(10/22/17) , and Champion Within-NBC(10/29/17) were preempted and rescheduled in early October 2017, which is the Fourth Quarter of 2017. Accordingly , these rescheduled shows are "counted" in the Fourth Quarter 2017 report, and they were not ''counted" towards the Core Programming total in the Third Quarter 2017 report. Give - NBC episode on 11/11/17 was interrupted after 14 minutes due to breaking local news of Rockford Police Officer Cox's Funeral coverage, because less than half of the program aired, it was treated as preempted for breaking news and not rescheduled. The Champion Within - NBC episode that was preempted 11/11/17 at 8:30 a.m. and rescheduled to its second home on 11/11/17 at 11:30 am, did not air due to breaking local news of Rockford Police Officer Cox's Funeral coverage.
