The case of the missing icon: Some people unable to access TV Shows on Apple TV

Nasty surprise today for some Apple TV users who powered up only to discover the TV Shows icon was missing from the interface. Yes, literally missing. Gone. Stolen. Since Apple has the ability to dynamically add or remove icons from the Apple TV interface - like iTunes Festival or Apple Events - this is likely a bug in their system. Hopefully Apple is aware of the issue and looking into it, and TV Shows will reappear as suddenly as it disappeared.

Can you access TV shows, either through iTunes or your Apple TV? Let us know, and if/when you get it back, let us know that too!
