TV Networks Running Scared Following FCC Fines

In the wake of last week’s record FCC fines levied against CBS for supposedly “indecent” programming, the WB Network is self-censoring the pilot episode of a new program, and offering up the uncut version on its website, for viewers who wish to see what had to be removed from theover-the-air version. Among the scenes removed by the network are “one that depicted two girls in a bar kissing on a dare and another of a girl unbuttoning her jeans.”
