Indecency on TV Talk

Not a lot of response to today's TV Talk on last week's FCC fining CBS for a "Without a Trace" episode, but I have gotten a couple of e-mails from "Trace" fans outraged that their show would be fined. I think it would be pretty funny if that grew into a real movement -- maybe the FCC would shy away from fining popular shows.

And does the lack of interest from readers mean that the whole indecency/Janet Jackson thing is simply yesterday's news? And if so, has anybody told FCC chair Kevin Martin?

UPDATE: Well, a few more comments have been rolling in. Got a couple of very thoughtful replies from parents who are undoubtably stricter than most, but both said that controlling what their kids watch is their responsibility, not the networks or the government. One mom said all she'd like is a little more control over commercials, so when her kids are watching parentally approved shows they don't get exposed to salacious ads. Doesn't seem like too much to ask.
