2011, MTV broadcast
SKINS, an American re-make of a hit show in Britain. It’s about a group of teenagers dealing with sex, drugs, and dysfunctional families. The Parents Television Council accused MTV's 'Skins' of featuring child pornography, called it "dangerous" and tabulated more than 40 instances of drug, sex and alcohol abuse in only the first
episode. According to critics, the show was “the most dangerous program that has ever been foisted on your children.” The series was faulted for glamorizing and trivializing casual sex among teenagers and raised the questions: "When does entertainment become child pornography?" The controversy prompted sponsors such as Taco Bell and Wrigley to pull their suport to the program. Ironically, British audiences find the violence of shows such as CSI and LAW & ORDER far more objectionable than sex, even among teen actors playing high school students.
On the September 26 broadcast of the hit ABC series DANCING WITH THE STARS, the breast nipple of HLN host Nancy Grace popped out of the top of her dress as she did a quick step performance with her parnter, Tristan MacManus. The brief exposure of her nipple prompted some viewers to complain to the FCC saying Grace should be “fined for this disgusting and godless display” and “I am so offended to see her boob, my kids are traumatized. I want action against her and this network!!!”
