Local TV Notes: Sex Slaves, Jeopardy! & Cubs Fans

Because it's on.

1. Dr. Michael Fauntroy: Shed No Tears For Roland Martin.

Previously: Local TV Notes: Roland Martin Threatens To Not Go Away.

2. Protect The Public From AT&T.

"Members of the Keep Us Connected Coalition are urging the Illinois Legislature to protect public, education and government (PEG) access channels in the 2013 renewal of the Illinois Cable and Video Competition Act of 2007 ('the Cable Act').

"Since passage of that law, AT&T has refused to follow key provisions that would result in equitable treatment of PEG access channels."

Previously: AT&T Is Back For More.

3. Lame On So Many Levels.


4. MSNBC premieres Sex Slaves: Windy City on Sunday, an exploitive piece of trash masquerading as a documentary.

"[P]roducers document Cook County's Human Trafficking Task Force as they pursue the criminals that solicit young women and girls selling themselves on the streets of Chicago," the network says. "Leading these efforts is State's Attorney Anita Alvarez along with Cook County Sheriff and Chicago PD, who collaborate to identify and convict the criminals who exploit the vulnerable, including the homeless."

5. Jeopardy! Seeks Black Women.

"America's favorite quiz show is coming to the Chicago Black Women's Expo, sponsored by ABC7Chicago, in search of the next Jeopardy! champion," the station says.

"Who will represent Chicago on the next season of JEOPARDY!? That's the question America's Favorite Quiz Show and ABC 7 Chicago hope to answer at the Chicago Black Women's Expo at McCormick Place on Saturday, April 6.

"Attendees will have the opportunity to see if they have what it takes to become a JEOPARDY! champion by participating in an exclusive contestant search held on-site at the convention, which features a wide range of seminars, workshops, and entertainment.

"Prospective contestants will take a 50-clue written test; those who pass will be selected for the second part of the audition process, which includes practice game play and a brief interview."
