Parents Television Council To File Complaint With FCC Over "X Factor" Incident

The Parents Television Council has announced it will file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission over the September 22 incident on the Fox Network show The X Factor in which performer Geo Gordley "dropped his pants" during his act. Fox blurred out the offending parts (of Mr. Gordley's anatomy) but the audience saw the performance, ahem, in its entirety.  "X Factor" judge Paula Abdul left the stage when the partial disrobing occurred. The show is taped ahead of time and airs at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
