Family Group Protests Against Las Vegas Nudity

Subscribe To:

The Parents Television Council, which has been responsible for generating most of the complaints about alleged indecency on network television, has filed a complaint with the FCC against NBC and its stations regarding a Feb. 15 episode of Las Vegas. The episode featured women running naked in a casino with "their buttocks ... visible." In a statement, PTC President Tim Winter observed that the commission's decision to fine ABC last month for an episode of NYPD Blue that showed a woman's buttocks "didn't deter NBC from airing barely obscured female nudity during a primetime airing of Las Vegas." (The show aired in the safe-harbor time period of 10:00 p.m. in most of the country but at 9:00 p.m. in the Midwest -- as did the episode of NYPD Blue.)
