Part of it is that the US is more restrictive about what goes over the airwaves than other countires. The other thing is that we're still experiencing the blowback from Janet/Justin-gate.

And in the godaddy case, the NFL is taking an active role in approving the commercial. Which is in and of itself very unusual. But hey, the Superbowl is one of those events watched by millions of young people. So if we're going to err; better to err on the side of being overprotective.

Get over it

They're not showing any nudity. They're not selling beer saying you'll have the time of your life. The commercials are not anything that kids have not seen on tv. They can access all the porn that they want on MySpace.

Enjoy them, get over it.

The networks are just scared. They don't want even the hint of something improper. Especially when the FC has been so unpredictable ove who they'll head after.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
