So what do you guys think will be the first station to begin showing nudity. I know ABC showed bare asses on NYPD Blue (I don’t think they went farther than that). Schindler’s List showed full nudity on NBC, but that was a special case. I don’t think any other channels have shown nudity intentionally. I am certain that the first step is going to be showing women breasts (yeaaaa!). Some channels (I think E! was trhe first) have begun showing topless women who are just painted (I like this), but curiously they blur out the painting process even after the nipples are covered. So what channel do you guys think will begin showing bare breasts for non-educational purposes?
My vote goes for E!. They have been walking the fine line for a long time. First it was the fashion shows with models wearing see through tops, and shirts unbuttoned all they way so that you could see a peek if you had a frame by frame advance. They also did that painting thing, on the “Wild on…” series. Last night i saw Jenna Jameson wearing a steel mesh top that you could clearly see her nipples through, but still doesn’t qualify.
Some other front runners are Fox, Comedy Central, MTV, USA, WB, UPN, any other ideas?
Second question, do you think they’ll hype it the way NYPD Blue did? Or will they just subtlely try to slip it in?
