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. KOVR: On Saturday November 18, 2017 we had preemptions of two E/I shows from 9a (Lucky Dog 2) and 9:30a (The Open Road with Dr. Chris). Due to college sports scheduled until 4pm on Saturdays 11/18 and 11/25, and NFL double-headers on Sundays 11/19 and 11/26, the make goods for the two preemptions were moved to two weeks after, airing on Sunday 12/3 at 4pm and 430pm, respectively. The Saturday college football games often run long, making the 4p and 430p on Saturdays a less sure time to make good the shows. I wanted to ensure that the notifications we gave for the make good day and time would be available and not preempted a second time. Rita Gazitano
