    Quite honestly, you can consider most of the shows that aired on CBS in 1996-1997 to be victims of this, as the Children's Television Act, combined with CBS dropping two hours of their cartoon lineup in favor of news, resulted in a huge overhauls of their Saturday morning lineup the following year.

    Another show who had fallen victim of this was short-lived "The Weird Al Show".

    Most original programming that aired in a channel block were the victims of this act, if it didn't happen then it would slowly lead to it.
