PTC Files Indecency Complaint Over ‘NCIS’

The watchdog Parents Television Council said Tuesday that it has filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission alleging that an Oct. 25 episode of CBS’s “NCIS” violated the commission’s indecency prohibitions.

In a statement, PTC said the episode included a scene in which a cyber-sex model had her throat slit while doing a Web cam strip tease.

“This content, aired at 8 p.m. on the coasts and 7 p.m. in the heartland, depicts a sexual function that is patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium,” PTC President L. Brent Bozell said in a statement. “CBS knew full well that millions of children would be in the viewing audience.”

A CBS spokesman declined comment.
