9.SpongeBob's not on this week/the TV is broken/our cable is out.
Unfortunately, most kids are technically smart enough to figure out that this one's not true, no matter how often and how vehemently you tell them that. In an attempt to have some peace and quiet, you might tell your kids their favorite show was canceled or just isn't on television anymore, that the cable is out, or that the satellite dish is broken. Then, your little techie will volunteer to fix it, and voila, SpongeBob once again rules the family room!
