n.— «Networks are also experimenting with something called snipes. Similar to ABC’s icons, snipes are visual effects that take place in the lower right hand corner of the screen during a show. Shows on TNT, for example, may include a visual of Kyra Sedgwick, star of The Closer, walking under a police tape and scanning the screen with a flashlight. (Snipes are different than the network logos that pop up on screens during shows, called bugs.)» —“Snipes, Bugs and More Degrade TV Viewer Experience” Media Buyer Planner Sept. 24, 2007.
