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 a failure of the network-wide graphics box, which is responsible for keying in the "E/I" logo over all children's educational programming, THIS Network children's educational programs which aired on Saturday, March 23 and Sunday March 24, 2013 did not contain an "E/I" logo superimposition throughout the entirety of the programs. Each of these programs were identified by the Network as an "E/I" program to the suppliers of program guides, and each was also introduced by an announcement stating that the following program is an "E/I" program. However, due to the graphics error the "E/I" logo failed to appear as a superimposition over each of the programs for the full duration of all program segments. THIS Network has informed us that this inadvertent error has been corrected. In addition, these same program episodes were aired in a rebroadcast, in their respective second home, at the following dates and times listed below (all times listed in Eastern time, and during the corresponding time block in other time zones). These rebroadcasts were publicized by announcements on THIS Network, and the "E/I" logo was superimposed over each of the seven programs for the entire program duration in these rebroadcasts. Affected Program: Rebroadcast Date & Time "Busy World of Richard Scarry" #40 Saturday, 3/30 from 1:00- 1:30pm ET "Wimzie's House" #104 Saturday, 3/30 from 1:30- 2:00pm ET "Wimzie's House" #105 Saturday, 3/30 from 2:00- 2:30pm ET "Country Mouse, City Mouse" #24 Saturday, 3/30 from 2:30- 3:00pm ET "Danger Rangers" #113 ` Saturday, 3/30 from 3:00- 3:30pm ET "Doodlebops Rockin' Road Show" #126 Friday, 3/29 from 10:00- 10:30am ET "Doodlebops" #312 Sunday, 3/31 from 11:00- 11:30am ET
