One day in the 1990's, Fry delivered some pizza to a local Fox affiliate. He joined an employee there in watching an episode of the hit Fox dramedy Single Female Lawyer, and proceeded to spill fluid into the instrument panel. This knocked their signal out. Lrrr and Ndnd on Omicron Persei VIII were thusly unable to watch the rest of the episode that was airing.
From my limited knowledge of how our terrestrial radio waves work in space, couldn't Lrrr and Ndnd just tune to a different Fox affiliate's channel to watch the rest of the episode? Is there something special about New York City's broadcasts, like are they stronger than most cities'? It's not like Fry knocked out a feed from Fox to their affiliates.
