Survivor: Gabon-er

The Parents Television Council is made up of idiots... and here's yet another example. Ridiculousness in bold:

PTC Blasts CBS for Nudity on 'Survivor' Premiere

LOS ANGELES (September 30, 2008) - The Parents Television Council™ called out CBS for allowing a contestant's penis to air unedited during the premiere episode of "Survivor: Gabon" on Thursday, September 25. 

During the show's premiere, the contestants participated in a race for "immunity and rewards." Contestant Marcus Lehman's penis was shown falling out of his underwear as he ran to the finish line. The image was not obscured in any way.

Unsatisfied with the growing volume of indecent material on live broadcasts, CBS has once again decided to violate the public trust, this time by including an unedited shot of a penis on 'Survivor.' Although this instance was brief, it was nonetheless shocking and purposeful. Unfortunately, with the number of people inside the network reviewing every frame of video, CBS knew full well of this nudity and elected to include it anyway," said PTC President Tim Winter.

"CBS's 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.

CBS's harsh response: 

CBS calls Marcus’ penis “virtually undetectable”
