Desperate Housewives sex scene leaked on YouTube

ABC is reportedly flipping out over a rough cut of a Desperate Housewives sex scene that somehow made it onto YouTube. The scene is from season three and (obviously) hasn't even aired yet. It is about a minute long and, apparently, is a pretty steamy scene with Marcia Cross and Kyle MacLachlan. There were two versions of it on YouTube and one of them claimed that the scene had been cut from the episode. ABC execs say that's not true- the scene will air but probably not in its entirety since Bree (Cross) gets pretty darn excited. (The link is supposedly here but YouTube is doing maintenance tonight and ABC said it asked for the clip to be taken down)
Variety is reporting that execs at all networks are worried about pirated scenes making their way to YouTube before making air... of major concern is leaking of cliffhanger videos to ruin major episodes. While I totally enjoy watching clips of shows that have already aired and of pilots that never made air, it is obvious in this situation that someone did something very, very wrong. Leaking video before it airs just isn't cool, man.
