    We're living in a post-Nipplegate world -- and apparently it's only going to get worse. In case you haven't heard, Fox has already rejected a Super Bowl ad starring Mickey Rooney for Airborne, the natural cold remedy. Why? Well, in the ad, the 84-year-old Rooney is in a sauna. Someone behind him coughs. He overreacts, jumps up, screams, heads for the door, and drops his towel. His bare bum is exposed for two seconds or so. Clearly scandalous. Who doesn't want to see Mickey Rooney's bare behind? Turns out the Mickey Rooney commercial isn't the only new ad that's already...

    This is sort of a quiet time of year for most people. Most news organizations do that tired old “that was the year that was” review, telling you all the stuff that you went through in the previous twelve months, as if your attention spans had been MTV’d down to around the goldfish level. You’re still sorting through all the wrapping paper you used at Christmas, hoping that your local Earth Liberation Front cell doesn’t get back at you for your blatant destruction of the forests by burning your house down. You’re still recovering from having relatives come and visit...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Communications Commission is set to impose a record $550,000 (310,000 pounds) indecency fine against CBS-owned stations for their broadcast of singer Janet Jackson's breast-bearing incident during January's Super Bowl, the Washington Post reports. The newspaper report, which cited unnamed FCC sources, said on Saturday the agency was expected to vote unanimously for the fine, which would be the largest levied against a television broadcaster. The amount represents a $27,500 fine for each of the 20 television stations owned by CBS, which in turn is owned by Viacom Inc, the paper said. The decision could be...

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Terri Carlin wants to make Janet Jackson's bare breast into a federal case. Carlin filed a proposed class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court this week against Jackson, singer Justin Timberlake, broadcasters MTV and CBS and their parent company, Viacom. Carlin alleges in the Feb. 4 suit that she and others who watched the halftime show during the Super Bowl were injured by the performers' lewd actions when Timberlake ripped off part of Jackson's costume, exposing her breast. In the lawsuit, Carlin charges that the exposure and "sexually explicit conduct" by other performers during the show injured...

    (Variety) TNT's telecast of the SAG Awards could for the first time carry a 10-second audio delay, as the fallout over Janet Jackson's fallen breast continued Thursday. In addition, a publicist for Jackson confirmed that the singer will not be presenting at this Sunday's Grammycast (, Feb. 3), while industry insiders said CBS and NARAS continue to discuss whether to ask Justin Timberlake to recuse himself from performing at the event. In an odd coincidence, dozens of execs from Fox Entertainment's film and TV units met yesterday for a half-day seminar dubbed "Producing Content in the New Millennium: Balancing Creativity...

    Story last modified February 5, 2004, 3:21 PM PST Janet Jackson's Super Bowl flash dance was shocking in more ways than one: Some TiVo users say the event brought home the realization that their beloved digital video recorders are watching them, too. On Monday, TiVo said the exposure of Jackson's breast during her halftime performance was the most-watched moment to date on its device, which, when combined with the TiVo subscription service, lets viewers pause and "rewind" live television broadcasts, among other features. TiVo said users had watched the skin-baring incident nearly three times more than any other moment during...

    <p>NEW YORK (AP) -- The one-second flash of Janet Jackson's breast at the Super Bowl could end up putting the brakes on years of plunging standards in the down-and-dirty entertainment industry.</p> <p>"This particular event might be, for the moment, the straw that broke the camel's back on the patience of the audience," said talk show host Carson Daly, a veteran presence on MTV, which produced the offending halftime show. "Tolerance of this sort of sexual imagery may have reached its peak."</p>

    SoCal school cancels MTV filming; officials cite Super Bowl show (Laguna Beach-AP) -- School officials in Orange County are reneging on a plan to allow M-T-V to film a reality show with high school students. The Laguna Beach Unified School District's board says the decision comes in light of the M-T-V-produced Super Bowl halftime performance when Justin Timberlake ripped off part of Janet Jackson's costume -- revealing her right breast. Faced with opposition from angry parents the school board voted yesterday to forbid the network from filming the students. Board members had tentatively approved the deal last week. It...

    SORRY: How TSG cost 60 Minutes a Jacko exclusive FEBRUARY 5--It took almost three days, but the first lawsuit has been filed in connection with Janet Jackson's breast. A Tennessee woman yesterday filed a proposed class action lawsuit "on behalf of all Americans" who watched the Super Bowl halftime show and were somehow injured by Miss Jackson's adorned nipple. In the below federal complaint, Terri Carlin, a 47-year-old Knoxville bank employee, contends that Jackson's exposure and other "sexually explicit conduct" during halftime festivities caused viewers to "suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury."

    Just to give you a snapshot of the current Democratic Party, in the primaries this week, Dennis Kucinich got three times as many votes in North Dakota as Joe Lieberman did. After that, Lieberman quit the race. In sympathy with Lieberman and facing similar odds – I'm quitting the race too. To my supporters: Hey, we didn't go all the way, but just look how much we accomplished! In his concession speech, Lieberman thanked each one of the Democratic presidential candidates for contributing to the race and thanked Al Sharpton in particular for inciting no additional violence against the Jews....

    Like something in a B-horror flick, Janet Jackson's radioactive right breast has morphed into the monster that's eating Hollywood. In the past 24 hours: • Jackson's name was stricken from the official list of presenters for Sunday's Grammy Awards telecast on CBS. That's the same network that beamed us the Super Bowl game during which Jackson's breast made its broadcast TV debut in a stunt that duet partner Justin Timberlake called a "wardrobe malfunction." According to one source close to the production, CBS and the Recording Academy are waiting for her to graciously bow out; if she does not soon,...
