On a related note, I was watching "The Real World" with my lady friend tonight and they let a nipple slip by, too. I somehow doubt MTV is just becoming some hardcore Vulgar-thon, well anymore than it usually is, but methinks they are letting more slide by. Then again, it doesn't matter much as MTV has sucked the big one since they stopped playing actual music videos and catered to the under 12 crowd only. But as for how I really feel...
Well I'd say they play videos during that obscure 2-6am slot, but half of what they play was shown earlier on TRL so it all negates itself.
"Alright, now I'd like to show you one of my favorite cartoons. It's a sad, depressing story about a pathetic coyote who spends every waking moment of his life in the futile pursuit of a sadistic roadrunner, who mocks him and laughs at him as he is repeatedly crushed and maimed. I hope you enjoy it!"
I'm of the same mind and thought his last world title reign was his victory lap and his best overall work, a high-note to go out on. And I think as of this month he hits TWENTY YEARS in the gimmick. Man.
