Pennsylvania station that didn’t air Amish in the City changes its mind, airs the show.
A Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, UPN affiliate decided not to air Amish in the City last Wednesday. The station, WLYH-TV, “decided not to air the first episode without seeing it first,” according to the York Daily Record. After viewing the episode, though, the station’s general manager aired the episode Friday night. “It didn’t go over the top, and it was a little bit informative. I think by not airing it, we lean toward censorship,” Matt Uhl said. The Lancaster New Era reports that he “invited several local educators and media representatives to a screening Thursday morning”; a reporter who attended said, “We should give them the same option to make idiots of themselves as Paris Hilton.”

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
