I sleep with my TV on every night. On the weekends, I leave the channel on CNN. Last night ~2:45 a.m. the EAS warning popped on the screen. This is
odd because I've never seen this on CNN. The alert itself didn't last as long as it usually does, either. Immediately, CNN turned into some hokey
Cutlerycorner garbage that reminded me of a really bad version of Home Shopping Network. I watched this play out for 1 1/2 minutes and I know this
exactly because there was a counter on the screen. When the counter made it to zero, it panned to some weird lady selling some other sort of knifing
I thought maybe I accidentally changed the channel so I picked up the remote and sure enough, the channel was still CNN. So I turned the channel to
the next and then back to CNN and this time it showed CNN programming.
What happened? I google Cutlery Corner and from what I can tell it is a satellite program. Why did it take over CNN?
