Don't Cry for me, Steven Bochco

After reading your statement that you believe a show like NYPD Blue would no longer be greenlighted, I have only this to say:

If a crazed FCC means that we are spared Dennis Franz' naked ass in all its glory, well, I for one welcome our power-mad censorious overlords. My retinas have no love for flabby male butt-cheeks, particularly when male viewers are not expected to endure similar flaws on the part of the females filmed au natural.

Besides, in a couple of years you'll get some wacked-out, gritty, "street" version of Oh! Calcutta! greenlighted, and then you'll once again be able to tout your "bold, transgressive, adult-themed drama making genius."

I'll be resting my retinas in preparation.
