Site not loading much of the time

About half the time in the past few days, trying to load the site's main page gives me a green gradient, an ad at the top, and nothing else. Sometimes, after several refreshes, I can get it to load, and sometimes not.

The only error I can find is that one of the 1X1 jpg images used for formatting has a bogus URL, and I can guess that sometimes, depending on what ads and other stuff are on the page, the lack of that image stops the whole page from rendering.

The wrong URL is http://adimages.scrippsnetworks/1x1.jpg (I imagine it's supposed to be as there is no top-level ".scrippsnetwork" domain).

Has anyone else been seeing this?
