    I was attempting to program my universal remote to my Citizen television, and in the process the television screen turned blue and a little red lock showed up in the bottom left corner. I followed the advice given to lori08 but nothing has changed and my tv still wont respond.

The TV has been 'Locked'. To unlock it press the DISP button for 4 seconds. Since you have a universal remote and there is no way to determine which button is the DISP button try holding each button on the universal remote for 4 seconds until, hopefully, you find the correct one.

My emerson 20 inch flat screen tv is encased in a dog house for outdoor use. I can't get to the back to see the model number and I want to buy a remote control for it. Is there a universal emerson...

You should be okay just buying any generic universal remote. Any remote requires programming to work with a specific TV, but universal remotes are easily programmable. The instructions included with the universal remote will detail how you program that remote to work with your TV (usually along the lines of simply putting it in programming mode, and pressing the power button until it turns your TV off, and then locking it in)

Try your electronic sales shops, such as RadioShack, for a universal remote. Be sure to check the manual for the code that applies to your Citizen before you buy it, though.
