Of course nobody called. Everybody knows you don't fark with the Crue.
 
2005-01-04 03:22:03 AM
Leno has an audience?
I do watch the first few minutes. Some of its funny. Lucky he has good writers.
 
2005-01-04 03:30:13 AM
The remark was carried to viewers on the East Coast but was edited out before it was broadcast in the West

There were no complaints. Does this tell you anything?
 
2005-01-04 03:49:38 AM
Probably because everyone who might be offended by the f-word tuned out once they saw Motley Crue was going to be on.
 
2005-01-04 04:18:03 AM
Now that its public, theres going to be a huge amount of complaints by people who didnt even see the show.

and the FCC is going to listen even though its obviously fake complaints.
 
2005-01-04 04:27:26 AM
If I recall correcttly statitions can air whatever they want from 10pm-6am. Therefore even if people did complain there is nothing the FCC could do.

RayD8: I do watch the first few minutes. Some of its funny. Lucky he has good writers.

I love both Leno and Conan, but I do the same thing for both shows: I watch the first 10 or fifteen minutes (opening jokes, segments (especially Jaywalking)) and I change the channel as soon as I know they'll be bringing out the first guest, unless the guest is someone I have interest in (not an often occurance.)

99.8% of the complaints made to the FCC in 2003 were made by the same organization - the Parents Television Council. [link]

Only 2 of every 1,000 complaints they received were from another group or individual.

One group of ultraconservatives has hijacked the FCC with neverending frivolous complaints and they have succeeded in giving all of us the impression that we've turned into a nation of moral pansies. That's due primarily to the fact that Michael Powell has actually been listening to this one noisy special-interest group. We're all partly at fault for not providing the Commission with alternative viewpoints.

If you want this madness to end, I suggest you write your own letter to the FCC protesting the practice of letting 0.2% of the population control what the rest of us are allowed to see and hear. It's unAmerican and against everything we stand for as a nation.

Nope. Broadcast stations are given more leniency with the rules during the overnight hours, but community decency standards still apply. If you say or do something crazy enough to offend someone that's listening at 3am, it's actionable.
 
2005-01-04 02:51:25 PM
GO to hell, FCC. Am I allowed to say that? Or will Drew be swamped with "complaints"?
 
2005-01-04 03:03:59 PM
All the annoying pussies were in bed already?
And/or no one watches Leno.
 
2005-01-04 03:06:39 PM
It happened close to 12:30 am, I'm sure the memebers of the PTC had been long in bed with their bibles...

Over the air broadcasters have much stricter regulations to meet, even during the overnight hours. Cable networks, on the other hand, have no such restrictions. That's why you can see Comedy Central, for example, run SP-BL&U in all it's uncut glory.
 
2005-01-04 03:43:18 PM
Leno is still on?
 
2005-01-04 03:44:40 PM
If stations could air anything we'd have informercials with swearing.
 
2005-01-04 03:44:45 PM
I remember one time I heard the word "shiat" on 60 Minutes ... was surprised that didn't get on the news.
 
2005-01-04 03:46:02 PM
Who?
 
2005-01-04 03:46:03 PM
It was New Years Eve. Everyone was too drunk to notice it was on tv. Prolly thought it was someone in the room going, "why the fark are we watching Leno?"
 
2005-01-04 03:46:11 PM
Unedited video clip? Anyone?

/too fast for love
 
2005-01-04 03:46:18 PM
No calls because the PTC, FCC, and Jesus himself torched the building.
 
2005-01-04 03:46:23 PM
silence > leno
 
2005-01-04 03:46:51 PM
all right! take that FCC!
 
2005-01-04 03:47:09 PM
All the annoying pussies were in bed already?

Well, we know one of them was on Leno saying the F-bomb.

Won't somebody please think of the insomniac and/or nocturnal children!
 
2005-01-04 03:48:23 PM
so all the compaliners are from those blue states on the West coast?
 
2005-01-04 03:49:01 PM
if Motley Crue is still considered a heavy metal band, it's no wonder most people don't like heavy metal these days ...

/Mastodon fan
 
2005-01-04 03:49:09 PM
I saw that. I was like, holy shiat!
 
2005-01-04 03:50:13 PM
Hmmmmmm, Ex Hair band leader on Leno... Wonder why no one called could it be people where of doing something important with their lives. It looks like I have new faith in society.
 
2005-01-04 03:50:19 PM
I agree with jqfarker. Once the Parents Television Council weenies find out about this, I'm sure the FCC will be inundated with complaints.

What a sad, wussy world we live in.
 
2005-01-04 03:51:16 PM
I guess that one guy who makes up all the complaints was sick today, or had to work or something.
 
2005-01-04 03:51:24 PM
Did they have to wheel the guitarist out again?

And why was Motley Crue on the Tonight Show and Larry King in the past couple weeks?

Larry King: "Ladies and gentlemen ...The Motley Crue"

uh---ok Larry.

Leno sucks. Too bad Johnny Carson won't come back.

Bastardface- I saw Mastodon during the past summer (they and 2 other bands opened for Fear Factory). You actually like that boring shiate?
 
2005-01-04 03:52:00 PM
Here comes the investigation...

Hah!
 
2005-01-04 03:52:07 PM
Give the PTC time, they're just winding up Christmas with their oh-so-cherished families! Then they'll get right on this.
 
2005-01-04 03:52:08 PM
"NBC receives no calls after Vince Neil dropped F-bomb on Leno"

Who gives a shiat?!
 
2005-01-04 03:52:31 PM
All the Christians are asleep at 8. Why would they stay up to watch the Devil Box?
 
2005-01-04 03:52:32 PM
I guess pain in the ass "family" people don't stay up late...who could've guessed that?
 
2005-01-04 03:52:32 PM


Talentess sack of crap reverts to profanity to cause notoriety - Andrew Dice Clay wanted for questioning.
 
2005-01-04 03:52:47 PM
so...he gets away with the f-word, nobody notices, and then he advertises it. Bet they'll get calls now.
 
2005-01-04 03:53:11 PM

The FCC received no complaints about Vince Neil because everyone who wanted to complain thought it was Jon Lovitz who swore, and complained about him.


Smokin' in the boy's room, indeed.

 
2005-01-04 03:53:23 PM
probably cuz nobody gives a crap about the crue or this show.

2005-01-04 03:53:24 PM
what the fark? it's not that big of a deal.

what? oh fark, maybe it is...
 
2005-01-04 03:53:32 PM
"The remark was carried to viewers on the East Coast but was edited out before it was broadcast in the West..."

/ah yes - the only reason why I don't like living on the left coast.

/Bastard Face - gosh "Remission" sure ruled - haven't gotten chance to listen to their new one yet.
 
2005-01-04 03:54:00 PM
Who the fark cares??!! I hope we can get over this farking PC bullshiat soon.
 
2005-01-04 03:54:47 PM
Vince Neil = tubby no-talent asshat. Once saw him get booed off stage when he was working on his "solo" career and was opening for Van Halen. Best. Booing. Ever.
 
2005-01-04 03:57:56 PM
No one called because no one was watching.
 
2005-01-04 03:58:00 PM
If anyone is intrestead in seeing it, Http://www.parentstv.org/ has it on there site under Worst TV Clip of the Week.
 
2005-01-04 03:58:14 PM

You went to a Fear Factory show, and you dare call Mastodon boring?
 
2005-01-04 03:58:34 PM
Bored24-
At least Mastodon would MOP THE FREAKING STAGE with Fear Factory.

/screw Carson - where's Jack Parr?

/back in couple hours after hockey.
