Well it's about darn time!

10 years ago, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake took the stage at Super Bowl XXXVIII for what would turn out to be one of the most controversial halftime shows of all time!

You know, the one where JT exposed Janet's armored boobie on national television and sparked outrage from concerned mothers everywhere!!

Well Michael Powell was the FCC chairman at the time of the performance, and while he originally denounced it as "a new low for prime-time TV," he's now speaking out about the drama and says the whole thing may have been

FCC Won't Fine NBC For Airing 'Bullsh-t' Chant Unedited

Filed under: TV NewsFootball

As we previously mentioned, the Baltimore Raven's coach John Harbaugh was signaling for a ref to come talk to him and he had stepped out onto the field.

That was a big mistake. It was unsportsmanlike conduct and he was penalized for harassing the ref.

He claimed he was just trying to ask the ref for a timeout, and the fans all believed him. Or they didn't. It didn't matter. The ref penalized their coach, so they did all they could do…

They let their opinions be heard by chanting "bullsh-t!"

Football announcer Al Michaels said it was the

Steven Tyler Is All For Censorship

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersPolitik

Steven Tyler is down for a bleep here or there. But too many bleeps, then where's the fun?

The FCC is under scrutiny over its regulation policies and the Supreme Court will hear a case on the matter. The Aerosmith frontman is willing to provide his own legal counsel for the FCC.

There's a certain charm and passion and magic in not showing full-frontal nudity. It's really hot when you only show a little

Tyler goes on to say that a clever quip or pun is okay but if rules and regulations were revoked, there would be no creativity or fun.

The FCC's troubles started back in 2003 when Bono

Will Swearing Be Allowed On TV Soon???

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

swearing may soon be allowed on tv

We f***ing hope so! LOLz!

Today, broadcast networks are going in front of Supreme Court to argue that they shouldn't be scrutinized by the FCC.

Even though the Supreme Court ruled the FCC's ban on swearing to be "entirely rational" in 2009, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals is now saying that "the FCC policy was unconstitutionally vague."

AND given the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court does seem interested in expanding the First Amendment, it's quite possible that they might rule in favor of the networks.

Should be quite the f***in' day at Supreme Court! Ha!

We wish the networks luck with their cause!!!!!

Yes! LOUD Commercials Will Soon Be A Thing Of The Past!!!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersTech Talk

fcc doing away with loud commercials

WOO HOO!

Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) officially passed the 2010 Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act which "requires commercials to be kept at the same volume as the programs they're airing around."

Unfortunately, the rule won't go into effect until Dec. 13, 2012…but we'd imagine we'll be hearing fewer and fewer loud commercials as the year goes on!

Here's what the FCC had to say about this wonderful act in a statement:

X-Rated X Factor Contestant Speaks Out : I Wasn't Naked

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersX Factor

Yeah, but you were damn close to it.

Earlier today, we reported that the PTC is going after FOX and The X Factor for broadcasting this gentlemen's audition above. They've filed a complaint with the FCC, which probably joins a pile of complaints that come in every day from the PTC. We actally kind of feel bad for them.

And we're over it , so anyway…

This contestant, Geo Godley, has come forward to insist that not only was he not naked, but what he was wearing could be found simply by walking down the beach. Inspired by his Greek Island culture, Geo wore a G-string to his audition, adding:
