NBC brazenly thumbed its nose at the broadcast decency law with the November 30th airing of Las Vegas with depictions of strippers, crude, offensive dialogue centering around a wager between two men over the flesh tone of a stripper’s private parts, and partial nudity. According to Nielsen Media Research, this episode was seen by more than 300,000 children under the age of 18.  We need to make sure every sponsor that paid for this offensive content hears from the public. They need to know they will be held accountable for the content they make possible with their ad dollars. We also need you to contact your local NBC affiliate to express your outrage at the way they are using the public airwaves to force this content into millions of homes.

The November 30th airing of NBC’s Las Vegas included a scene set in a strip club where two men can be heard saying “Fifty Gs on Pink!”  “Fifty Gs on Brown!”, while a woman in a skimpy bikini dances on a pole on the table in front of them.  A casino employee asks the men, “Hey guys, what are you betting on?” One of the men responds, “Her nipples!”  The casino employee says “Aaaaah!”, then parrots back to a co-worker, “Her nipples!” The stripper is shown removing her bikini top, exposing her breasts fully to the two men making the wager, while the men cheer.  Her bare back and the side of her naked breast can be seen by the TV audience while the woman continues to dance suggestively.
