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. Due to an error in programming provided directly from Grit TV network, on October 27, 2018 at 12:30p, episode 304 of Rock the Park aired without the required E/I graphic on Grit TV. As a result, we did not include the October 27 run of Rock the Park episode 304 in our core E/I totals. Rock the Park episode 304 ran again in its second home on November 3 at 1pm, with the E/I graphic, and that run is included in the core E/I programming. The Bounce TV network made a change to the Kids E/I program lineup during 4th Q. Effective the week of 11/12, Game Changers replaced Vacation Creation on Saturdays, 11a-12p for the remainder of the quarter. The network ran crawls to promote the change and the station sent notification out to the guide services as well.
