This has been a public service announcement. This emergency alert will be repeated every hour upon the hour. 


  1. I love Once Upon A Time! It is a great show. The new Beauty & the Beast show also looks pretty good (last week was first episode) as well as the new show Arrow.

  2. I've seen the previews for Beauty and the Beast. Hopefully the CDC will add it to the approved list. ;)
