Halftime Report: Viewers Complain to FCC About Boredom

by on February 8, 2005 · 2 comments

FoxSports.com reports today that the FCC has once again received complaints about the Super Bowl. This time the complaints were about boredom. Seems some people were pretty disappointed with Paul McCartney (formerly of “Wings” and another band), compared to the excitement of Janet Jackson last year.

Of course, Fox goes on to disclose that only two such complaints were actually received. So it’s less than representative of the country as a whole. But then again, the same might be said for the thousands of FCC complaints ginned up by the Parent’s Television Council last year. Getting censorship right just isn’t as easy as it seems.

    Nobody complained about “JoJo left his home in Tucson Arizona for some California grass”? No one made a connection to a pro-marijuana message? IS NO ONE THINKING ABOUT THE CHILDREN?!?!?!

    Sorry for the hysteria. I thought it was required when discussing half-time shows.
