TV STRIPTEASE SHOW TIED TO PROGRAMMING ERROR

George Morton got an eyeful when he came home from Mass on Palm Sunday and turned on public access television.

Morton saw a tape of a striptease contest -- a far cry from the usual public access programming of local meetings and talk shows.

"I thought, this is terrible," Morton said. "I don't get HBO or anything like that."

Cablevision said Thursday that a "program switching error" had occurred.

"When it was detected, the programming was removed immediately," Cablevision spokesman Bill Powers said. "We have taken appropriate steps to prevent this from happening again."

Morton said he planned to file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission. The mistake affected customers in four counties.
