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.
