The Playboy Club Gets Nude

The Parent Television Council is at it again, this time it has NBC in it's target.  Must have been a slow week for the PTC.

Their problem lies with NBC requiring the cast of their new show, The Playboy Club, to sign nudity clauses in their contracts.  It's NBC people! You think Eddie Cibrian is just gonna wave his dick across the screen?

However, the TV Supervisors claim that NBC is crossing a line in distinguishing network television programs from ones that you would see on HBO or Showtime.

"During last year's public comment period for the Comcast/NBC merger, the PTC called on the FCC to ‘force Comcast to stipulate that it absolutely will not use the public airwaves to distribute pornographic material…the public interest demands no less.’ NBC now says it will air a pilot with ‘Playboy’ in its name and the production company is requiring performers to sign a nudity clause -- something virtually unheard of for broadcast TV," said PTC president Tim Winter.


I understand their point, I really do. However, I am sure it will be on later at night and with a cast like Eddie Cibrian, Jenna Dewan, and Wes Ramsey, how can you NOT want nudity?!?

i understand that these groups arent entirely ridiculous since i was a kid not that long ago and saw all sorts of things i wasnt supposed to (remember jesse metcalfes ass in the first season of desperate housewives? heaven) from what i read the nudity is for a dvd version of the show. not network. so its kind of stupid and out of the TELEVISION councils jurisdiction.

NBC and this show just got a boatload of free publicity out of this. Lucky them.
