Glitch leads to adult video on kids channel.
Every year there's a problem with that on cable and TV channels everywhere.

RALEIGH, N.C. – A cable TV spokeswoman says preview clips for adult programming appeared on two channels dedicated for kids in North Carolina because of an "equipment failure."
Time Warner Cable Inc. spokeswoman Melissa Buscher said the problem lasted about two hours Tuesday morning in areas around Raleigh, and several parents called to report it.
Buscher said it happened on two "Kids on Demand" channels that were showing viewers a list of children's programming such as Dora the Explorer. The titles listed didn't match up with the preview videos in the right-hand corner of the screen, which showed a preview of adult programming instead of kids programming.
Buscher said the company regrets the glitch and has fixed the problem so it won't happen again.
Well, if you check closely, "Dora The Explorer" and "Go Diego Go" sound very adult indeed!
