A trashy TV show that's a sexed up commercial for a product? Good riddance. The models are so skinny anyway that the joy of looking at women in lingerie is barely there. The ratings were bad anyway, it seems like they're just trying to blame it on the big bad goverment who won't let you look at pretty girls.
Off topic: What the hell is Bob Dylan doing in lingerie commercials now? Someone should write a 12 minute protest song about that. :-\
I have heard all of the hue and cry, and I'm not sure I am ready to join in. Howard Stern is simply a disgusting man with a disgusting television show. I just can't develop much of a sense of outrage about Clear Channel's canning him. (Note: I hate Clear Channel).
On the other hand, I think people like Michael Savage are equally disgusting and dangerous. Why is the FCC not going after him and his ilk? It is also ironic that they went after Howard, it appears, after he started getting political.
Did anyone see Janet Jackson on SNL this weekend? I fell out of my chair laughing at her Condoleeza Rice skit (when stumped during a Committee hearing, she falshes her breast to distract attention)
