I never thought I'd be jerking off as I watch some hot naked babe tell me about countries blow themselves up. I feel so enlightened. Was it good for you too?
2002-09-06 01:07:31 AM  
blow-ing. Sorry, I was distracted and thinking about the possibilities during the sports segments !
2002-09-06 01:40:57 AM  
I just hope they end up hiring serious journalists and don't treat it as some sort of gimmick.

And that they don't bring Walter Cronkite out of retirement.

Something like this already exists. Looks like Playboy wants to cash in on the success.

NakedNews is great. You get to watch hot women take off their clothes, AND get your daily dose of current events. Fantastic!
2002-09-06 02:42:18 AM  
I wish I didn't laugh and point while watching the male version of NakedNews...
2002-09-06 02:46:26 AM  
Accipter & Bumjube,
Yeah, I knew about Naked News but Playboy's newscasts will be airbrushed !

More FANTASYORGASMATIONVISION it will be called I bet.
2002-09-06 04:24:28 AM  
...and Playboy's website still sucks.
2002-09-06 04:24:38 AM  
I don't see how this show can go wrong with a powerhouse lead-in like Sexy Urban Legends.
2002-09-06 04:27:53 AM  
For some reason, I have a distinct feeling that the weather segment would be quite entertaining.
2002-09-06 04:31:10 AM  

Do you find it hard (no pun intended) to concentrate on the news when you watch it?
2002-09-06 04:32:18 AM  
In the UK we used to have a cable channel called Live TV which had a gorgeous stripping newscaster. It's sports coverage usually consisted of topless darts, and it had a midget ona trampoline doing the weather.

Where do I sign up?
2002-09-06 04:33:05 AM  
Great, more naked women who can't broadcast worth a damn giving us the news. I mean sure, they'll be naked, but won't it get kind of dull after a while? This will never rise above gimmick status.
2002-09-06 04:34:13 AM  
While it may not be an original idea, I am pretty confident Playboy will do it much better. The women on are just not on par with Playboys girls. Who cares about the quality of the news.
2002-09-06 04:35:01 AM  
Im sure they will just use AP news stories.
2002-09-06 04:36:25 AM  
Whoever designed that Naked News website should be killed.
2002-09-06 04:41:38 AM  
Yawn, I can't believe people still watch TV for news.

I get all my news online, without having to wade through those annoying "interest" stories.

Naked or not, tv news is worthless.
2002-09-06 04:41:53 AM  
i dunno...something about stock market analysis that reeeeally turns me on.
2002-09-06 04:42:30 AM  
Russian television, nakednews.. has been doin this for awhile.
About time.
2002-09-06 04:59:16 AM  
I've seen this before in other countries, and let me tell you, it wasn't dumb blondes reading the news in a clueless way. These were intelligent (and yet still hot) ladies stripping to nothing.

Alright I admit it. I have no idea how intelligent they were.
2002-09-06 05:06:39 AM  
I nominate Leila McKinnon to be anchorwoman.


2002-09-06 05:32:45 AM  
It's just another way to pay for over-priced, badly made porn.

I'm there, dude.
2002-09-06 05:46:47 AM  
Do any of the Brits with cable telly here remember LiveTV's news? Rusty the trampolining dwarf and the Scando bird in the swimsuit? Them were the days. The rest of the stuff on the channel was guff mind you.....except topless darts.
2002-09-06 08:40:08 AM  
Oh, this should be amusing...
2002-09-06 09:44:19 AM  
NakedNews is the best because not only do you get to see hot chicks take off their clothes, but because it's already taboo, they can report off-color or controversial stuff. Plus, having a naked woman outline the details of the unfolding apocalypse is much more comforting.
2002-09-06 09:56:28 AM  

who wants to see playmates read news? i'd rather just see them jump around and spray each other with water..
2002-09-06 10:13:49 AM  
"The Weekend Flash" joins the Playboy TV line-up of original programming

Original my ass. As it's been pointed out by countless others, the naked news has been doing this for ages!
2002-09-06 10:14:30 AM  
Dammit dammit dammit! I really need to learn how to end my tags. I thought I did it right. I really thought I did it right!
2002-09-06 10:18:45 AM  
The women on are just not on par with Playboys girls.

Jeez, Playboy is pathetic. It's like a magazine full of freekin' blonde, pneumatic, clones. Boring!

At least the Naked News' women look like people, not inflatable dolls.
2002-09-06 10:45:34 AM  
mmmmm.... inflatable dolls
2002-09-06 10:50:47 AM  
ThrowsPukeNear... LOL!

Or, Real Dolls
2002-09-06 01:17:18 PM  
Ok, this isn't "Spiffy". The obvious joke is that this deserves a new, previously unseen "Stiffy" tag, but that doesn't quite describe it. I think Fark should get a new "Coaxing Erections For Purposes of Masturbation" tag, or quite possibly, just a tag that says "Blue Balls"
2002-09-06 01:35:31 PM  
Actually Naked News is a good program. It keeps you up to date on the latest gear, news, and issues. The women are intelligent and pretty farkable. Say, lets send them a link to Fark, so we can be known worldwide. Besides, who READS Playboy(except for the delightful social issues articles)? As some have already commented, regular news is boring. If the world is going to end, let a hot naked chick tell me. If it's all over, I'll at least have a smile on my face.
2002-09-06 02:40:58 PM  
Hopefully Laurie Dhue will follow suit (so to speak). She's the only reason I even periodically watch Fox News.

The truth about Playboy TV:
2002-09-06 02:47:45 PM  
Playboy's a little late. has been around for a while.
2002-09-06 06:33:22 PM  
Nakednews is great, but not particularly erotic. I was surprised by ho good the news coverage actually is. The stripping is so matter-of-fact, and completely lacking in erotic movement, that it's hard to be aroused by it. And the talent really are decent at reading the news. So it's real people, naked, reading serious news.

Playboy doing it almost seems to miss the joke. Their fake, airbrushed, implant girls trying to read words they don't understand is just sad.
2002-09-06 09:56:33 PM

Freud would be amused.

2002-09-07 12:32:05 AM  
Yeah, but how much will it cost? I haven't checked lately, but I seem to recall that Playboy TV charges per show... I mean, even if they're attractive, who wants to pay for the news?
