The BBC's governing body said Friday that it's star night-time host Jonathan Ross will not be fired and that he will be able to return to the air after his 12-week suspension with no pay. Ross was suspended after he engaged in what was described as an obscene phone call to actor Andrew Sachs that was broadcast  during comedian Russell Brand's BBC radio show. Brand subsequently quit. BBC Trust chairman Michael Lyons said Friday that while Ross's comments during that show and ones that he made about actress Gwyneth Paltrow on his TV show were "grossly offensive," the editorial supervision by BBC management -- or lack of it -- was "shocking."
