So, why is the FCC fining a show that aired 5 years ago?
Good question. The show has been off the air for how long now - what's the point??

I was wondering why it took so long myself. No clue why. Nope, the world didn't come to an end. I'm very thankful for that, lol. I just think it's nice to maintain some decency to tv. Who wants butts and breasts all over network tv, where kids can see it?

Oh yea...nobody believes that...that was all staged. lol Once MTV took over the halftime show I stopped watching it. The NFL took it back after the JJ controversy though.

My guess is to deter other shows from airing similiar nudity.

I agree with you. Look, I have no problem if an drama airing at 10PM wants to get a little "adult" from time to time, but NYPD Blue did the nudity thing for no other reason than to get attention. And nudty just for nudity sake is just dumb.

Remember that HBO comedy "Dream On" from about twenty yers ago? Pretty decent show, good cast, but since it was HBO and they could show nudity, well then darn it, a naked girl will be in every epsisode.

It was pointless. And this is coming form a man who has no problem with pointless nudity.

When it comes to HBO or other pay networks, I don't care what they do. A person knows what to expect. I've had HBO since it debuted. I'm okay for a little shot of something on network tv, but I've never seen anything like what it's that clip. Never. If that ever became the norm, man alive, that's a world I don't want to live in. This coming from a person who watches most R-Rated movies (and beyond, lol).

I don't want it on network tv. I don't want to be entertaining my aunt Alice, and have a scene like that come on. I don't want the grandkids to see that. There's a time and a place for everything, in my opinion. I do have a problem with any kind of nudity on network tv. It's all pointless, and against FCC rules, fortunately.

Yea I agree. I was a big Deadwood fan but I wouldn't want that on Network TV either. Somethings just shouldn't be available for everyone to see. People always say to parent your kids but how are you supposed to do that when they can put anything they want on network tv?

Isn't nudity what we pay more $$$ for to get the channels that do show that kind of fare? I don't expect that from FOX or any other channel.

I agree wholeheartedly. You know what I don't understand though? How come we and the FCC get all bent out of shape over a some butt but allow people being impaled, dismembered, or shot and their chests or heads exploding all over? Shows like 24, Supernatural, some of the Law and Order shows and others show some really gruesome things that I wouldn't want Aunt Alice or the kids to see either, but that seems ok. I'd almost rather see some butt than some splattered brains. Why do we and the FCC allow that but not nudity? And it seems like some of the violence on tv gets more and more graphic and we don't seem to say too much about it. How'd we ever get to where seeing our insides is better than seeing our outsides?

Law & Order? LOL. That's the tamest show going. The blood splatters in the rug upset you? I watched a couple of seasons of 24, and my husband's never missed an episode. Never saw any kind of the the violence you described. No splattered brains, nobody impaled, no exploding heads, nothing crazy gruesome. There's implied violence, where they start something, and the viewer knows what's going to happen. I don't know what you're watching. Must be on cable. I'm talking about Primetime Network TV. The Big 3. I see that raw violence in the many, many movies we rent from Netflix, at least five a week.

Besides, I think that the kind of nudity in that clip, which ran on ABC, is 100 times worse than a kid seeing a shoot-out between cops and robbers. If I had kids or someone over, I wouldn't have the Sci-fi Network on. They get crazy on that station, which is cable. I don't want anything thrust at me, without my consent. No wardrobe malfunctions at 8 pm, during a family Superbowl Halftime Show. I like to make my own viewing decisions.

I watched the DVD of "Dream On", scouting for naked women. And I saw a few but not in every episode and nothing to write home about. Of course, I wouldn't write home about any naked women I saw on television anyways.

I understand what Janice is saying. I mean, my mom is always accusing my dad of looking at some woman's cleavage on the TV. Imagine if they had turned past that scene of NYPD Blue. While I'm downstairs enjoying it, they'd be up there arguing about it. It would totally have ruined the viewing pleasure for me.

And to quote myself of something I once said to, well, myself... "There is nothing wrong with pointless nudity. As long as it's pointless nudity of a woman."

Where was the FCC all those years ago when Charlotte Ross and other NYPD Blue cast members were dropping thier drawers during prime time?

Why now this big crackdown on a show that has been off the air for so long?

I guess I'd better go cancel that new show I'm in on ABC before the FCC sees it!
