MNF Semi-Nudity

This past Monday, ABC opened Monday Night Football (MNF) with a semi-nude Nicollette Sheridan provocatively jumping into the arms of Terrell Owens. To no one’s surprise, absolutely everyone has reacted exactly as one would predict. As such, after a few days of "careful" consideration Michael Powell announced today that he is disappointed in ABC and MNF, even Disney did not escape Powell’s parental lecture. ....Aw shucks, Dad. We promise....

Frankly, I’d like to know if ABC has promoted the person responsible for this week’s MNF opening yet or if they are going to wait until Powell announces a fine? This was better advertising for MNF than buying time during the Super Bowl and actually delivering a great commercial. Of course, it should also be fairly profitable for ABC. Nobody should ever say that ABC didn't learn a whole lot from its experience with NYPD Blue.
