FOX Bows To Pressure, Agrees To Limit Tempation Island Promos

By SurvivorBlows, 01/18/2001 

FOX promised on Thursday to cease promotions of 'Temptation Island' during such family-oriented fare as 'The Simpsons' and 'Malcolm in the Middle.'

In a letter Wednesday citing numerous complaints from parents, a member of the Federal Communications Commission urged media magnate Rupert Murdoch -- whose News Corp. Ltd. owns Fox Entertainment -- to stop promoting the adult-themed show when children might be watching.

Robert Quicksilver, president of network distribution for Fox, responded by saying that he had directed Fox's marketing department had been directed to 'withdraw immediately and permanently' any promos for the show that were scheduled to appear on any of four Sunday night programs that air from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. -- 'The Simpsons,' 'Malcolm in the Middle,' 'Futurama' and 'King of the Hill.'
