Topical Oops of the Day

Fresno viewers had waited all season to find out who would win "Dancing with the Stars" -- but the topical producer went and ruined the suspense by putting the winner in a tease that air in the middle of DWTS. Oops. Not as bad as last week's Reno oops, where they said being gay was a sin... but a good reminder that we should all be careful in what we broadcast. Think of the viewer. Think of the viewer. Think of the viewer.
