When we say "There is a nice movie on at the cinema" , the "on" means "happening" as in "There is a war on in the neighbouring country."
But recently I read a sentence "What’s on Channel 4 tonight?"
Shouldn't there be two on's in the sentence as in "What’s on on Channel 4 tonight?"
The first "on" should mean "happening" and the second "on" should mean "by means of" .

No.

You wouldn't say "What's on on TV tonight", would you?

Hi,

"What’s on on Channel 4 tonight?"

You wouldn't say "What's on on TV tonight", would you?

Oh dear, I say (and hear) these things casually quite a lot.Emotion: stick out tongue
