Default 'NYPD' Buttocks May Cost $1.4 Million

'NYPD' Buttocks May Cost $1.4 Million

WASHINGTON (Jan. 26) - The Federal Communications Commission has proposed a $1.4 million fine against 52 ABC Television Network stations over a 2003 broadcast of cop drama NYPD Blue.

The fine is for a scene where a boy surprises a woman as she prepares to take a shower. The scene depicted "multiple, close-up views" of the woman's "nude buttocks" according to an agency order issued late Friday.

ABC is owned by the Walt Disney Co. The fines were issued against 52 stations either owned by or affiliated with the network.

FCC's definition of indecent content requires that the broadcast "depicts or describes sexual or excretory activities" in a "patently offensive way" and is aired between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

The agency said the show was indecent because "it depicts sexual organs and excretory organs - specifically an adult woman's buttocks."

The agency rejected the network's argument that "the buttocks are not a sexual organ."



The Scene in Question (warning: mature content)

This wasn't just a peek. I think it went over the line. It was a full scene of well, ASS.

no wonder there was controversy, the woman in question was attractive. It's perfectly fine for Dennis Franz to bare it because he's not considered hot by anyone

The fans should have sued ABC for having to watch that.

I remember seeing an interview with Dennis Franz, years ago. He said that before he ever showed his butt on the show, fans in the streets would always ask him "When do we get to see your a$$?" lol

I'd like to know how that scene made it past the censors. Seriously, I've never seen that much nudity on network tv, with a kid in the scene to boot. I really wonder how it made it to the airwaves. Those censors are strict. I was just reading a list of other fines through the years.

It shocked me too. Until the Janet Jackson controversy NYPD Blue pretty much went unchecked. After that I don't think their was hardly any nudity on the show.
