I haven't checked lately, but for the first couple days after the change,
WLVI's ID shown on the bottom of the screen at the top of the hour was
saying "WLVI-TV/WLVI-DT 56 BOSTON." Someone over there didn't (or doesn't)
realize that 56's COL is Cambridge, not Boston.

Just a little nitpick, but its something I noticed...
