Somehow I find it hard to believe that the Pope in Rome (who was already 
at home asleep at midnight US time) was told about this on the next 
working day:

"By the way, Holiness, I'm sorry to report that in New York, viewers 
were not able to see the end of the Midnight Mass on television. 
Instead of the last procession, there was a musical performance by, uh, 
Sly and the Family Stone...."
