FCC rules steamy 'Monday Night Football' intro wasn't indecent
UPI News Service, 03/14/2005
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission Monday ruled Nicollette Sheridan's steamy introduction of ABC's "Monday Night Football" was not indecent.
A Memorandum Opinion and Order denied complaints alleging ABC affiliates aired indecent material during a Nov. 15, 2004, setup for "Monday Night Football" that had the "Desperate Housewives" star dropping her towel to lure a football player away from the game.
The FCC said in a statement Monday the scene was not sufficiently explicit or graphic to be deemed indecent.
