Scorpion Turns TV Off ???

The TV show Scorpion aired on CBS, episode "A Cyclone" has a scene that turns off my LG TV ??? I recorded this show on my DirecTV standard definition receiver. Every time I get to this one specific point in the show the TV turns off. I have tried it on a Vizio TV also connected to the same DVR and it does not happen. It is repeatable and happens at the same exact spot in the TV show every time. The rest of the show plays normally. Has anyone else had this happen? I assume there is some code embedded in the show that causes this particular TV to power down.

I watched that on two different TVs...didn't have the problem. I think this one will always be a mystery.

Could be like when I was watching Gotham last week. There was a narration voice describing each scene. I think it was some sort of feed for the blind? Dialog was ok and it wasn't my settings. Kinda turned my wife off to watching it...not that she ever likes anything I watch.
