    I think it's good the lawsuit was dismissed. What would a person expect when they go on a show that even has a title that stresses nudity.

      a side note...I think the premiss of the show is silly. Reality TV seems to attract the extremes in people, their personalities, words and actions. As for Dating Naked… if it is still on... it sensationalizes the concept of nudity. Perhaps in some way, it may promote nude awareness, but not in a positive way.

      TV censorship is very specific. It seems logical that the show's producers collaborated with the FCC, established rules and guidelines and an ironclad participant agreement. So long as both parties adhere to the agreement, it is illogical to think that a participant can willingly sue the producers, unless the agreement was broken. It also seems logical that the mere concept of the show invites someone to test the agreement in court. So glad the case was dismissed. Next????

        I agree. That show seems to be a combination of tittelation and fantasy.

        In this case, the FCC has nothing to do with it. VH1 is a cable channel. Their content is beyond the reach of the FCC. However, to ensure that their channel is carried on the non-adult tiers of cable systems in this country, they adhere to certain standards -- thus the pixellations. If they didn't do that, they'd be dropped from cable systems ==> fewer viewers ==> lower audience numbers ==> lower advertising revenues AND lower viewer fees.

        Almost all of the cable channels, and now, even many broadcast channels, get a piece of your cable bill payments.
