Pa. cable glitch switches Vatican Mass to racy ad

Sat Apr 11, 12:08 pm ET

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.

Only one person in the entire city of Philadelphia (pop. 1.45 million) called to complain?
