Carol Anne, can you hear me, honey?!

I never thought I'd be sad to see this.
It's what we've always wanted.

Take care my friend.

I have a feeling that the "CBS - Goodbye" screen was originally created in case of a much more horrible event.

This is probably the most terrifying thing I've seen in my entire life. What the fuck did he paint the TV set for? AAAAAHHHHH.
I think the set was white but incredibly dusty, which was partially wiped off before the video

I totally should have TiVoed the shutdown. Oh well.
In San Francisco most of the stations stayed up for another couple of weeks, but just broadcast a 24/7 "hey you REALLY need a DTV converter box, dude" message.

The only thing more terrifying than this are the gremlins underground. They cannot get DTV boxes because they are horrid little brown creatures who enjoy the taste of flesh.
The only reason we haven't seen a Gremlin war is because they've been entranced by television. All they do nowadays is eat, watch TV, and fuck. They don't breed as fast as bunny rabbits, but they have bred enough to make a sizeable population that lives in the sewers and underground. THey eat only out of recreation, not out of necessity, because they are little hell monsters.
Now that the DTV switch has been completed, they've gone stir crazy with boredom. They have also been taking classes on how to cook human flesh.
One day they will all rise out of the sewer systems and networks and carve every man woman and child into human sausage. No one will be spared. They will only stop once they are sated for the day, and they will come back in full force again.
This will be what America gets with the digital transition transfer. They will force people to taste their own cooked flesh before they die. They will feed Little Johnny his own well done arm before they allow him to die. They will pluck the eyeballs from Big Sister Suzie and eat them right in front of her. Except she can't see, because she has no eyes. Daddy and Mommy will be forced to watch.
All I am saying is that I hope you have strong floors and clogged up drains. And that you might want to reconsider sleeping. Forever.
A silver lining, then.
That was worse than a Something Awful article

They should have played "We'll Meet Again"

Change is sooooo scary!
You have no sense of drama.
He appears to like jerking off to things though.

No, come back!

This concludes our broadcast era.

There is still low-power analog TV running in some places in the middle of nowhere, which is comforting. And all of Canada (which is not comforting)

This made me smile.

And like that, he was gone.

Goodbye analog television. And on the tail of your sine wave, I wish you luck as you continue your lonely journey into the dark. And may you one day, far on your pathless procession, caress the antennae of another receiver in the void. And speak to them messages from a civilization that once was.

A million years from now, on a planet circling a distant star, aliens will start throwing their beer cans at their TV.

don't know where, don't know when,
