TNN - No More Black Bar!?
 
Forgive me if this is old news because I rarely watch TNN (or whatever they're calling it lately), but recently I switched over and noticed...the black bar is gone! And the logo is also a lot less noticeable...it's actually semi-transparent at times. Is it possible I just might be able to actually enjoy the new Ren & Stimpy episodes without wanting to bash the TV in? Unfortunately they're still going crazy with the network bugs. So is this a permanent change or what?

The guy who invented those black bars that cover up private parts on television must have sued them. ;)

Let's keep our fingers crossed. When was the last title/popup promo seen over a show on TNN? I hope those are gone. I was hoping for the credit squeeze to have vanished but I saw it happen recently (after when they were supposed to be Spike TV). But the black bar gone is a major improvement. Now for a channel that would only show widescreen it wouldn't be much of a problem.

Spike Lee appealed to a New York court to suppress this as well. Apparently whenever people see the color black, they think of Spike Lee.

You know, I'd probably think that would be a more legit case then his last one.
