[quote]WASHINGTON (AP) -- The nation's chief media regulator expressed disappointment Wednesday over the steamy locker room opening to ABC's "Monday Night Football" broadcast.
"I wonder if Walt Disney would be proud," said Michael Powell, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.
Wait, it gets better. Here's the kicker ...The opening, which has generated complaints to ABC and the FCC, featured actress Nicollette Sheridan in the locker room, supposedly dressed only in a white towel. She drops the towel and jumps into the arms of Philadelphia Eagles star Terrell Owens. Sheridan was shown only from behind and above the waist after dropping the towel.
And just what would've been appropriate for a Monday Night Football audience, a Bible lesson? Can we get real, please?? Most people I know who watch football would enjoy seeing that.ABC quickly apologized for the locker room intro. And the NFL called it "inappropriate and unsuitable for our 'Monday Night Football' audience."
Last but not least ...
So if people are so offended by what's on TV, why don't they just turn off the TV instead of watering it down for everyone else?An FCC spokeswoman said the agency has received a number of complaints about the ABC broadcast, though she declined to say how many.
