According to this answer, there's only a 2/7 chance that there's no outbreak on a given day. I've been playing Emerald for 30-60 days now, and I check the TV every day I play, and it never notified me of an outbreak. Since the TV is obviously unreliable (or I'm just extremely unlucky), does that mean the best option I have is to just go to the potential outbreak locations every day to see if I can find rare Pokemon?
By the way, the chance of not having a single outbreak in 30 days is approximately 1/20991396429662000.

So, a couple questions:
One: How many times a day do you check the TV in-game?
Two: What is its typical response?
Once a day.
"Mom/Dad might like this program...better get going!"

The player may view televisions in houses to see if and where an outbreak is occurring.

You're doing it right, just having bad luck.
