Pa. cable glitch switches Vatican Mass to racy ad
 
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090411/...cast_gone_wild

PHILADELPHIA A Philadelphia cable network's early morning broadcast of Good Friday Mass at the Vatican abruptly changed to something wildly different a 30-second "Girls Gone Wild" ad.

Comcast spokesman Jeff Alexander says the 2 a.m. Friday programming glitch was due to a required test of the Emergency Alert System. He says such tests are usually done in the overnight hours.

The test automatically tunes viewers to a preselected channel that would provide information in the event of an emergency. But during tests, the channel airs regular programming, which in this case included a paid advertisement for the racy videos.

Alexander says the problem affected the network's entire local area, but only one person called to complain.

They need to make up for it by interrupting some Maxim-type program with religious messages :applaudit:

Maybe it's secretly the church's new way to get people to actually attend mass instead of watching it on TV. :flap:

One complaint? Everyone must have been too hungover to not only miss Mass but to watch it on TV as well. :sofunny:
