TV News Tidbits: Wardrobe Malfunction, Browncoats, and More
During a very busy week for the U.S. Supreme Court, the justices upheld a ruling from a lower court on the "Wardrobe Malfunction" case involving CBS. For those not familiar with the case (and who could blame you? It happened eight years ago), it's the result of the U.S. government law suit against CBS for showing Janet Jackson's nipple for 9/16th of a second during Super Bowl 2004. The SCOTUS made CBS almost as happy as proponents of the health care law by ruling that the network didn't have to pay the $550,000 fine.
NBC's Revolution has enlisted Daniella Alonso (One Tree Hill, Friday Night Lights) as "a rebel fighter battling against the militia that controls North America". Revolution is the peacock network's post apocalyptic drama which sounds more and more like Falling Skies, well that is if you forget about the aliens of course.
