An Ontario-based TV station had to apologize to viewers on Friday after they inadvertently aired three minutes of hardcore gay pornography to their morning news audience.

Mike Katrycz, the news director at CHCH, blamed the broadcast on a splicing accident brought on by a local cable company repairing cut cable lines. CHCH staff tried desperately to pull the porn off the air, but about three minutes made it on television.

CHCH's audiences seemed to laugh off the morning wake-up call. One tweeted that he was "thinking about filing a lawsuit with #CHCH for making me question my sexuality." Another tweeted that he thought he “woke up in the middle of a Maplethorpe (sic) shoot." Something tells us American audiences wouldn't find the accident so amusing, sadly.
