Turned on my TV early one evening...

...and thought HBO was on. There on the screen was a scene of a man behind a woman having intercourse. They were clothed, but it was obvious what was happening. My kids (13 and 16) were in the room and I quickly changed the channel so I can't speak to the quality of the story but I was highly disappointed that WGN was airing this. Not a family friendly show.

Too much sex
