This Story Caught My Eye

I thought this was funny, from BBC: Simpsons ditched by Venezuelan TV. They are instead replacing it with Baywatch Hawaii. :)

The Simpsons has been dropped from morning TV in Venezuela after being deemed unsuitable for children - and has been replaced by Baywatch.


The popular US cartoon about the yellow dysfunctional family was branded "inappropriate" and pulled by the country's television authorities.


Caracas TV station Televen has started showing episodes of the beachside show in the same mid-morning slot.

The country's TV regulator said the saga of Homer Simpson, wife Marge and their three children flouted regulations that prohibit "messages that go against the whole education of boys, girls and adolescents".

The station is showing episodes of Baywatch Hawaii, a later incarnation of the lifeguard rescue show which started in 1989.


The serial, about a group of beach lifeguards, gained notoriety for its attractive male and female cast members coupled with glamorous locations and slow-motion running sequences.


No comment. :)
