Taboos
Born Innocent - The NBC made-for TV movie Born Innocent (1974) told the violent story of a 14-year-old girl (played by Linda Blair of Exorcist fame) who was raped with a broomstick handle while in custody at a juvenile detention center.

BORN INNOCENT starring Linda Blair

The graphic depiction of the brutal act (which aired at 8:00 P.M.) and the ensuing complaints to government regulators forced a congressional hearing in 1975.

Eventually, the "family viewing time" was legislated so that younger audiences would no longer be subject to such sexual materials in the early hours of the night.
