The Parents Television Council
filed an indecency complaint with the Federal Communications Commission against an episode of Survivor: Gabon
that featured a brief glimpse of a contestant's *****.
The PTC encouraged its members to follow suit and file their own complaints. CBS countered that it was both fleeting and inadvertent.
The PTC cited the Sept. 25 premiere of Survivor: Gabon
, in which a race for immunity included the brief reveal. "The image was not obscured in any way," the group said. But it was also difficult to see unless a viewer was looking very closely, according to a clip of the show posted online
“CBS’ decision to hide behind excuses that the incident was ‘fleeting’ and didn’t generate an immediate flood of complaints is the epitome of irresponsibly. The number of ‘fleeting’ penises we expect to see on broadcast television is zero," the PTC said.
