I am no prude, but I was stunned seeing the segment leading into the game. My 8 year old was like 'what was that?' and I thought how hypocritical for the outrage over Janet's half second boob flash when they showed a woman baring her naked body to Terrell Owens and I guess it was supposed to be funny because it was a spoof of 'Desperate Housewives'. :shake:

I guess ABC apologized today.

ABC Apologizes for Steamy Football Intro


NEW YORK - ABC apologized Tuesday for a steamy intro to "Monday Night Football" after receiving complaints from viewers and the NFL.

The spot featured a naked Nicollette Sheridan jumping into the arms of Terrell Owens.

Before the Philadelphia-Dallas game, ABC showed Owens and Sheridan in an empty locker room in an attempt to spoof the network hit "Desperate Housewives." Sheridan, who stars in the show, was wearing only a towel and provocatively asked Owens to skip the game for her.

After she dropped her towel, he agreed to be late for the contest and hugged her. Then the shot panned out to two more stars of "Desperate Housewives," Teri Hatcher (news) and Felicity Huffman, watching the scene unfold on a television and commenting on desperate women.

"We have heard from many of our viewers about last night's MNF opening segment and we agree that the placement was inappropriate," ABC said in a statement. "We apologize."

The NFL called the intro "inappropriate and unsuitable for our `Monday Night Football' audience."

"While ABC may have gained attention for one of its other shows, the NFL and its fans lost," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said.

The Eagles said they appreciated ABC apologizing for the segment.

"It is normal for teams to cooperate with ABC in the development of an opening for its broadcast," the team said. "After seeing the final piece, we wish it hadn't aired."

ABC has broadcast "Monday Night Football" with a 5-second delay this season, a precaution after Janet Jackson (news)'s wardrobe malfunction at February's Super Bowl.

At halftime of New England's win over Carolina in the Super Bowl, Justin Timberlake (news) ripped off part of Jackson's brassiere, exposing her right breast to a TV audience of some 90 million. The Super Bowl was broadcast on CBS, which was subsequently fined a record $550,000 by the FCC (news - web sites).

If it was on an hour later would it be better? That show is all about being provacative....last week they left very little to the imagination when one of the ladies gave her man a B.J. ....no complaints about THAT was there? This was NO accident...ABC new what they were doing. I guarantee this weeks episode of Desperate H-wives will be one of its highest rated. Good job ABC. I have an idea....FLIP the dang channel if you dont like what your seeing.

I DO NOT watch Desperate Housewives. I tuned in to see MNF. Your point would be valid if I complained about watching the show (which I believe comes with a parental advisory, doesn't it?) but I tuned in to see football.

And given the outrage over what happened at the SB, I'd be shocked to see any less given this particular skit which I found MORE offensive because clearly it was orchestrated for the very reason you mention.

No, I don't give a hoot about that (thought I agree some of the outrage could be because of that like it was because of b/w Janet/Justin...)

I was more stunned because it was so completely in your face on the heels of the SB controversy and how people were saying they tuned in to see a football game not a naked boob and yet this woman was more naked and the innuendo MUCH MORE direct than that of the JJs but was going to be passed off as a 'joke.'

Sex and the City is marketed as an ADULT programming (on a network that offered a rating and at times that could be blocked or otherwise monitored)

last time I heard MNF was not.

I have not watched 'Desperate Housewives' so I can't comment on the show but from what I've heard it's a bad soap. And while SATC could be considered a soap/comedy it was about single women bed hopping and not married women...which given the furvor of those who supposedly are so into values is alittle intriguing why the show is doing so well.

Good to see she has an opinion about something.

These type of shows were the major hit tv shows of the 80's. Heck, CBS had a special on one of them the other night. And remember they were all considered to be "bad" back then, are actually quite mild compared to today's standards.

I have seen Desperate Housewives and happen to find it very entertaining. So shoot me.

However, I have to agree that it's a given to expect adult oriented content with that show than it is with MNF. My hope is that it hasn't come down to MNF being a risky tune-in with the kiddos. But then again, I would hardly call last night's intro "stunning". It's how you handle these issues with your kids sitting there that determines the affect it has. Let's keep it in perspective.

If anything... I thought it was a weak intro to MNF. It took too long and the conversation was sorta stale. I got the joke, but it kinda fell flat.

Did your 8 year old ask questions about the big breasted half naked women on the sidelines that received plenty of camera time? I doubt it.

Ah, but I watch no regular programming outside of news (save for the sports) on network tv because MOST of it these days IS trash. Not because of sexual content but because it's all copycat oriented and if there is one successful genre on one network the others follow with the same type of show ad nauseum.

I imagine thanks to the success of DH, we'll start seeing tons of crappy night time soaps...especially since the 'reality tv' genre seems to have run it's course and is on the way down. :rolleyes:

So I'm not avoiding DH because of it's content being trash, I avoid most network programming in general because it's trash, not sexual, but rather brain dead time filler.

The NFL is hypocritical.

They have no problem having sponsers for different erectile disfunction products, have no problem airing beer commercials from sponsers with two buxom babes fighting it out in a fountain, no problem with all the innuendo about THE TWINS.

The intro to MNF was funny. It doesn't surprise me that people complained. It is a reflection of the attempted return to family values that was a big part of the election.

NOOOOO, it has nothing to do with the 'return to family values' (and the bogus bull shit the 'Focus on the Family' crowd are trying to sell) this has to do with the NFL doing the EXACT SAME SHIT they said they were going to put a stop to in January. And yet, months later it's happened again and this time with NO context whatsoever other than the most controversial player in the league was involved in a sexual skit that was by design crafted to elicit a certain reaction...what people were accusing JJ of at the SB.

It has to do with some people complaining about Janet's semi-exposed black boob but not about Nicolette's completely exposed white back...and yes, there are racial undertones here but that is not my beef with the segment though I will admit they are there now and were there with the SB. (perhaps some subliminal OJ/Nicole connotation playing out in this reaction, who knows)

As far as the erectile dysfunction commercials, if done tastefully I have no problem with them just as I don't with tampon or Massengil commercials. The point is not to erase sex from TV, MNF, the planet but to put it in a context that relates to the programming being offered and in a fashion that is not so in your face.

The reason I thought the outrage for the JJ SB segment was so ridiculous is because she is KNOWN for her sexual nature in her music, dance, and personna. Also, the dancers in the scene were in lingerie and yet people were in a huff about her boob flash? Considering the entire skit, the boob was NOT out of context.

But the skit for MNF clearly was.

You are so full of shit it stinks, change your diaper.

Thr JJ SB fiasco actually showed the tit, it was planned, just like the ABC stint, however, it didn't show any tit, ass, puss, dick.... something that is off limits to regular TV. It was a stint that left you to imagine what it was, clearly within the lines of the FCC guidelines.

It's just that the NFL is being hypocritical. ABC did not rip the clothes off to expose anything, the towel was dropped but all it revealed was the back of her. It was up to you to imagine what was on the other side.

If you are going to have guidelines in tv land, stay with it, any exposure of the breast,penis, snatch is off limits . Some TV shows actually shows a bare ass from time to time, did they show her bare ass that night ? I didn't see it. What is the difference between some heated sex scene and this ? It was on National TV primetime during a family event . Right ?

Get over it, look at the cheerleaders now, you see lots of skin,boobs, some cheeks at times. We have seen girls in snug fitting shorts, so tight you can see camel toes at times. Girls thatare excited that nipples stick out at times.... but this is a family show, right . Little Johnny would be so damn proud to watch.

Maybe you are so jealous that Nicolette got to undress in front of TO instead of you, I dunno. But whaever your reason is, it doesn't stack up to what the general public sees on a daily basic. Daily soaps show just as much on tv each day.

Get over it.

Agreed, and I'm fine with that. That is why we choose to watch programming (Nickelodeon, Discovery, etc.) that is appropriate and not try to have it censored because others choose to watch and should have the choice.

Again, we expect the cheerleaders as they are in context with the game.

What was inappropriate was the NFL or the networks designing the skit with the intent to inflame the public so soon after the same thing happening at the SB. Supposedly the NFL was going to crackdown on this sort of thing and yet, there it was again.

So it was not the nudity in EITHER instance that has me irked. It's the titillation of the public and then claiming that it was not planned, it's regrettable, it's going to stop only to see it being done again.

And in this environment with the FCC gaining more power and cracking down even harder it's just ridiculous....

We expect to see the cheerleaders and indeed it's part of the NFL game plan and I don't have a problem with them because most of it is done in a tasteful fashion.

There is 100X more T&A availalble to confuse your 8 year old during ANY NFL game. The up close shots of the jigglin' and juggy chearleaders are fine with you, but the 3 second bare backside drives you nuts?

Imagine the horror when this li'l kid turned around and saw half naked hotties!

I'm not for censoring crap like Desperate Housewives and I'm not even for fining the network for 'indecency' but I am for calling it what it is and pointing out that the NFL and the networks are playing dangerous games here and that ultimately will come back to bite ALL TV shows (and that will suck big time because I want to see adult programming on my pay tv channels and in the evening when the kids are asleep or in the other room) and they will have no one but themselves to blame...

Your 8 year old boy is going to be coming of age real soon.

I remember our oldest son, at the ripe old age of 9 ( 1985 )was watching some movie when the kissing got heated and clothes came off, not showing anything much at all. But got up with a big ole boner and was asking why it happened. The funny part was we had company, we all hit the floor laughing out loud.

My 5 year old grandson was sitting in my lap last year, watching Shena, where Tanya Roberts is riding the horse, tits just a bouncing, he looked at me, giggled and said ,I want one of them. I said what, the horse ( playing it off ), he said no way, the girl !

Kids are going to see this stuff now days, peroiod. As long as the FCC allows it, the time will come when you will see the breast exposed on regular TV. It's just a matter of time. They show enough ass now, I don't see them ever getting to the point of totally naked full frontal.

I said my daughter might be able to wear a 'naughty' tshirt because there was not a clear innuendo with the shirt. It's more in the minds of those who read it...My daughter is 23 and thus wears what she wants. FTR, she's got quite the rack and thus wears a number of shirts that are quite snug fitting and show off her great figure and she looks FABULOUS. Did I allow her to wear those shirts when she was 16, nope. When she hit 18 she started wearing things that I was not crazy about but she paid with them herself so I bit my lip and chose my battles.

To clarify, I said the shirt you mentioned WAS UTTERLY INAPPROPRIATE and no daughter of mine would be so lack of self respect as to wear something like that...

The point with this clip on MNF is there was in your face, no mistaking, no other intention for the scene. Therefore, it was in an inappropriate context given what a football game is.

I took it upon myself based on the information I knew ahead of time to not watch because I figured it would be crap...

thus, the kids missed the 1/2 second boob flash but more importantly they missed the women dancing in lingerie and the dry humping during the segment. Darn, having a previous knowledge of MTV and JJ/JT gave me a headsup to avoid the show.

This wasn't "that type of thing". It was a woman's bare back, from the waist up. Sure, it was clear that she wanted to have sex with TO, but get this:

IF YOUR CHILD UNDERSTANDS THAT THEY ARE GOING TO SCREW, AND KNOWS WHAT SCREWING IS, WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

IF YOUR CHILD UNDERSTANDS THAT THEY ARE GOING TO SCREW, AND KNOWS WHAT SCREWING IS, WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

IF YOUR CHILD DOES NOT KNOW WHAT SCREWING IS, THEN THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT THE MNF INTRO WAS IMPLYING. IF THEY ASK, SAY THAT THE 2 PEOPLE WERE SIMPLY "TALKING". PROBLEM SOLVED.

Because the question was just 'why did that show that before the game' and then I had to explain that it was because they were trying to advertise their other program that was about women like the one in the locker room...

to which there was an 'oh.' He just looked perplexed (like why is he talking to her and not warming up), not confused or traumatized or even embarrassed.

You already have blatant sexuality on many channels today, you have it on billboards, you have it on cable, you have it prime time with proper prior notification.

Shucky darn, you don't have an uncircumsized unit coming at you while talking about viagra during an episode of Barney. I know that must be crushing you inside, but I don't see the big deal at all except from extremists like yourself who demand that your lack of judgement be the norm for the rest of us.

I am not an extremest, and I am certainly not a religious prude either. Neither the MNF, or SB episode bothered me in the slightest and wouldn't have even if I had children. I don't have to feign outrage to make myself feel better.

I would agree with this point if the NFL had not made themselves look like an innocent victim of the first episode. They did though and in the process they made Janet Jackson's boob seem like one of the most subversive episodes of cultural exposure in the history of TV...

and then months later it happens again and it's supposedly the networks fault because the NFL didn't make itself crystal clear of the standards by which they choose to operate??? :rolleyes: :shake: :banghead:

The irony is these idiots pushing the envelope are merely fanning the flames of those who would use religion/'cultural decline'/'values' arguments as a means to try to censor or control programming elsewhere. I hope the NFL and ABC's lame attempts at publicity are worth the backlash it will generate. :shake:

#1. If all Christians are Jesus Freaks, as you stated earlier, then you are an extremist.

#2. I wasn't bothered by the MNF issue at all.

#3. I wouldn't have been bothered by the SB incident had it been accompanied with a warning prior to the halftime show.

#4. I haven't feigned any outrage.

#5. Don't tell me how you would react with your children until you actually have children.

But a woman standing naked in a man's locker room trying to seduce a player from a his job to her does not?


Never ever said she wasn't. Nor do I care, just pointing out what differences you are offended to.

Extremist? You are a straight, otherwise sane man who is afraid of boobs on TV.

Talk about extreme.
Boobs? What is this, 1955?

We watch sports on network. No regular programming. FWIW, I have HBO and Cinemax and am completely aware of (and enjoy) the adult programming on those channels. But block it from the kids.

In all honesty, my kids are not aware of many channels outside of History, Discovery, Animal Planet, Disney, and the Nickelodeons.
So you don't mind half naked cheerleaders grinding?

If the MNF episode confused MemyJR..........He's going Ted Bundy when he stumbles into a link of his mother posing on the internet about her "marrital aide" the size of a 10 gallon hat.

If me calling christians jesus freaks makes me an extremist, then color me extremest.

I didn't say you did feign outrage. Why are getting so defensive. I am talking about the people who are outraged.

And yes, I do know how I would react with children if I had them. They certainly would not be sheltered the way most people try to shelter their children in this country.

I don't hate jesus freaks and have friendly relationships with some. But I certainly don't like them trying to push their agenda on non-jesus freaks.

I agree with your MNF take, 100%

However, you are pushing your agenda. You even support your agenda with a European "model". You are doing the same thing that you are complaining about the "jesus freaks" doing. It is only because your end result is appealing to you that you do not see it as an agenda.

Precisely. Everyone has a belief system that they think others should follow or wish they would. Anyone who speaks their mind on any given subject is engaged in pushing their beliefs, or agenda.

Nope, they are an expected part of the game and one the NFL isn't saying they are sorry for on the one hand and then pushing their presence on the other.

The MNF episode was within the limits of the FCC. These people crying about it need to STFU.

If pre-SB tit FCC standards were maintained, I would not have any problem whatsoever, hence no agenda on my part.

I wonder if those who would trample all over free speech are the same ones who cry the loudest when they feel that their right to bear arms is being threatened?

I guess only the parts of the Constitution they agree with are valid.

Kinda like the Bible.
