WCBS-TV, New York's CBS affiliate station, has canceled a pre-Tony Awards performance of a song called "We Just Had Sex" from the musical "Passing Strange."
Variety reports that a CBS rep deemed the song "inappropriate" for a 7 p.m. audience:
In a statement, a WCBS spokesman said station execs felt "the lyrics in the song offered by the musical's producers are inappropriate for broadcast television, especially for a 7 p.m. audience, when children are watching.
So what are these inappropriate "We Just Had Sex" lyrics?
"We just had sex. There's nothing sleazy 'bout a natural reflex. It's nice and easy. No need to crane your necks. It's all cool and breezy, baby. What's a little bedroom traffic? Evening News is more pornographic!"
