You know, I'll admit this now. When this show was in reruns (and the later years in new episodes) I would watch it for the sole purpose of seeing some female butt. And most of the time, I was disapointed. They didn't show butts as often as I figured they would since that seems to be this show's trademark. So when I saw the now infamous scene, yeah, I was happy. It was good to see. And clearly worth the $1.4 million.

to be honest, I wish the FCC would stop being prudes. NYPD Blue was never ever once geared to younger audiences and always aired at 10 pm. I don't understand why pay-cable outlets like HBO and Showtime had nudity on their show, and even shows like Nip/Tuck on FX have showed moments of nudity, and it's okay because those shows don't air before a certain time and have never been marketed to children. So why is it okay that we see an explicit sex scene on Nip/Tuck but it's not okay to see a woman's backside for a few seconds in what was meant to be a comedic sequence (at least from the clip I saw). Nip/Tuck was never meant to be viewed by the Zach and Cody crowd.

Well HBO and Showtime are pay networks and even cable channels like FX , you have to pay extra to get them. That scene was not comedic. I remember it and I was shocked...more so because a boy was also in the scene. I was a big fan of NYPD Blue. I admit the nude scenes did get people to watch in the beginning but the show was good and didn't really need them. I thought at times they went over the line. Even with the language...right before the Janet Jackson controversy they started using the s word a lot. Afterwards they stopped. I'm not for a lot of censorship but their has to be a limit of how much you can put on network tv.

I don't want nudity on any network show. We have HBO for our risque shows. We're not prudes in any sense. Suppose my husband's 14 year-old granddaughter was sleeping over and walked into the room while that NYPD scene was on. Who needs that BS? No way. I don't want blatant swearing and nudity when I'm not expecting it or not paying for it. The majority of people don't either. I say fine them the 1.4 million. They went too far. Teach their ASSes a lesson.

Did we watch the same clip? It wasn't just a few seconds. The camera took a closeup of her ass, and there was a side view that bordered on frontal nudity, breasts and all. The nudity part was 25 seconds long, not a few seconds. Like Sonny stated, it wasn't funny. They both looked traumatized, and not in a "Home Alone" cutsey kind of way, where the kid puts his hand over his cheeks.

Janet Jackson's legendary "wardrobe malfunction" at the hands of Justin Timberlake during halftime of the 2004 Super Bowl is perhaps the most infamous FCC target. Her briefly exposed nipple cost CBS $550,000.

Fox was hit with a fine of $1.2 million by the FCC after an April 2003 episode of 'Married by America' featured "scenes in which party-goers lick whipped cream from strippers' bodies in a sexually suggestive manner" and "a man on all fours in his underwear as two female strippers playfully spank him."

In 2002, Stern's colleagues Greg "Opie" Hughes, left, and Anthony Cumia earned Viacom and Infinity Broadcasting a $357,000 fine when they aired the sounds of a couple claiming to have sex in St. Patrick's Cathedral.

I remember all the hype when NYPD Blue was doing all the nudity.

It served no purpose to the plot, and most viewers knew it was a shameless stunt to get ratings.

Other shows tried similar things, and they came and went too.

The world didn't come to an end.

So, why is the FCC fining a show that aired 5 years ago?

That'll teach you, lol. I'm sure you saw one of the 10,000 replays. That was the most foolish, staged thing ever. Their claim that is was an accident was laughable.
