FCC fines CBS $3.6 million for airing 'Without a Trace' teen orgy

The Federal Communications Commission has slammed CBS affiliates with a $3.6 million fine for a teen orgy shown on "Without a Trace."

A total 111 CBS stations will have to pay $32,500 each for airing the Dec. 31, 2004, episode about the disappearance of a high school student, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

The FCC Wednesday ruled the episode, which showed actors engaged in couples and group sex, crossed the lines of what is considered decent for public airwaves.

"While there is no nudity, the scene is highly sexually charged and explicit," the FCC said in a statement. "Moreover, the material is particularly egregious because it focuses on sex among children."

CBS denied the show was unnecessarily graphic and said it was "an important and socially relevant story line warning parents to exercise greater supervision of their teenage children."
