Go to this site to file your complaint.

We don’t have television anymore, we got rid of it eight years ago, and no one missed it. But I filed my complaint anyway.

Please keep ban on f-word and nudity!!! I’m in my 20s and I still don’t want to hear it or see it.

TV has already fallen off the track for years now; me and my wife don’t even pay for cable or satellite, and I tell you we could not be any happier.

I hate TV. The longer I am away from it the less I can tolerate it when I happen to be around one. It’s filled with nothing but pointless vulgarity or pointless pointlessness for the kiddies (see Disney and Nickelodeon). I’m not surprised by this change, though I wonder what their justification is. I’ll merely continue to avoid TV, pray for mercy and check the daily forecast for chances of fire and brimstone.

I am a teacher in school and a mother of four. I deal with middle school and high school students who are influenced by the media. Teaching students to make good decisions and to treat others with respect is becoming increasingly difficult when they see the contrary. Keep the f-word and nudity out of TV. Keep violence to a minimum as well – or we will have a population of people insensitive to the dignity and safely of others.

Please continue to ban the f-word and nuditiy on television for all the families in America that want to protect their children!

Continuing the ban on the f-word in radio and the f-word and nudity on television is important to all families and children in America. There is no reason to or benefit from relaxing any rules.

It is already hard enough raising children in this day and age, PG 13 is already to far gone, even G rates have subject matters not appropriate for smaller children. At some point someone needs to stand up for whats right and not what the majority is. The “B” word is already in use way too much, innuendos inundate almost every tv show on today. The “F” word is pushing the boundaries, we will become families who don’t watch TV anymore or listen to radio. Please, for the sake of our children, don’t push this more than it already is pushed. Let our children be children, let me watch a show without slanderous and derogatory language. Stand up for whats right!

It is absouletly unthinkable with our culture as it is today that another fact should arise about extending the use of the F word and nudity to our television. Many of the programs project immorality as it is.
Our children are being taught the wrong values by the parents or this subject would never have come up. We must speak up as a nation against all the pornography and not look the other way.

In case the FCC has missed it – the violence, the gore, the nudity, the disrespect shown by swearing – how has it made the world BETTER? On the contrary, show an episode of bombing at the Boston Marathon and look what happens a month later. Do you not get it? Justify how it would improve someone’s life. It won’t. Maybe, you should think about programming ramifications and take all this crap off TV/Radio so that families can enjoy it together again.

Complaints can be submitted through April 30. As of today over one million complaints have been filed.

Please continue to ban the F word and nudity from TV. It would be helpful if you would be more strict on all forms of violence and vulgar language and dress shown on TV. Can you not see what it’s doing to impressionable young minds? These children are the future leaders of our world. We need to be thinking of programming that will teach them good values and morals and respect for others, not disrespect and degradation and lust. Honestly, what sort of person do you want to be leading our country in a few years?
How are we forming our young? TV is a very powerful influence.That’s the question we should be asking when we decide on the standards by which we allow programming.
