‘Oops, I think those parts are known!’ CNN ‘accidentally airs 30 minutes of hardcore porn in Boston area instead of Anthony Bourdain’s show’

CNN accidentally aired a half hour of porn instead of Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ – spicing up Thanksgiving night in the Boston area, a viewer has claimed.

The viewer posted several photos of her screen on Twitter, showing how she was expecting to tune in for Bourdain’s travelogue but was met with explicit images of porn star Riley Quinn instead. 

The porn movie, according to the user, went on for at least 30 minutes. She first saw it on CNN around 10:30 pm, watched something else, and kept checking periodically until the channel blacked out completely at 11 pm.

‘The RCN cable operator in Boston aired inappropriate content for 30 minutes on CNN last night. CNN has asked for an explanation,’ a CNN spokesperson told the DailyMail.com.

The user complained to cable provider RCN, who operates on the east coast, and said she was told everything was ‘working perfectly’ and that the company didn’t know how many households were affected. 

RCN told the viewer Friday morning on Twitter: ‘We have not had any reports of the programming issue you mentioned on CNN in Boston.’

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the viewer was the only one affected or if several households ended up watching a pornographic movie instead of ‘Parts Unknown’.

CNN had planned to air six back-to-back episodes of ‘Parts Unknown’ in several states on Thanksgiving, including Massachusetts.

The viewer tweeted during the blunder: ‘This wasn’t scrambled channel porn, this was hilariously high def b**t sex.’

She lamented: ‘OK but seriously, I’d really love to watch the @PartsUnkownCNN marathon.’ 

The DailyMail.com has reached out to RCN for further comment.

Twitter users saw the humor in the situation, with one of them writing after reports of the incident emerged: ‘You won’t believe what they aired instead of Mike Rowe’s Dirty Jobs.’

Another Twitter user posted: ‘Oops, I think those parts are known.’ 

Cable provider RCN told the viewer Friday morning it hadn't received any other reports in the Boston area. It was unclear how many were affected
