And tibits of truth begin to unfold (from cnn.com):

"The decision to have a costume reveal at the end of my halftime show performance was made after final rehearsals," Jackson said in a statement.

"MTV was completely unaware of it. It was not my intention that it go as far as it did. I apologize to anyone offended -- including the audience, MTV, CBS and the NFL."

MTV produced the halftime show, which was broadcast by CBS. Both had issued their own apologies.

On Monday, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell ordered an investigation of the incident.

An estimated 140 million people were watching the show when at the end, pop star Justin Timberlake popped off part of Jackson's corset, exposing her breast.

Powell told CNN he was not convinced the incident was an accident.

"Clearly somebody had knowledge of it. Clearly it was something that was planned by someone," he said. "She probably got what she was looking for."

Jackson spokesman Stephen Huvane said the incident "was a malfunction of the wardrobe; it was not intentional. ... He was supposed to pull away the bustier and leave the red-lace bra."

I agree with you there, when I heard a lineup of Janet, Nelly, P.Diddy and Kid Rock I wondered out loud. I wonder what's keeping Timberlake from weaseling himself into this and low and behold out he came.

Agree with B.Factor. I'd rather Shania over any of the crap that went on this years halftime show. Shania is at least somewhat cool and relevant. This years halftime show is a nothing but a bunch of has beans (well except for J.T who's quickly being watered down worse then the beers at that stadium)... I'm really hoping this will be a defining jump the shark moment for all involved.

From the "Well, DUH" department, CNN says that Janet's stunt was the most replayed TiVo moment ever: (cnn.com)

    Originally posted by CNN.com
    LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- When Justin Timberlake tore at Janet Jackson's leather outfit during Sunday's Super Bowl half-time show, TiVo users took notice.

    Then they took notice again and again, using the digital video recorder to replay the event and to pause at the crucial moment in order to discern just what it was that Jackson had revealed to millions of Americans.

    TiVo said that particular halftime stunt was the most replayed moment not only of the Super Bowl but of all TV moments that the young company has ever measured.

    TiVo said it used its technology to measure audience behavior among 20,000 users during the Super Bowl. The exercise revealed a 180 percent spike in viewership at the time of the -- as Timberlake refers to it -- "wardrobe malfunction."

    One notable TiVo user apparently unimpressed with the performance of Timberlake and Jackson was FCC chairman Michael Powell, who launched an investigation into the bare-breasted matter. Powell is so taken with TiVo that he once referred to it as "God's machine."

    This marks the third year that TiVo has released details of its second-by-second review of how Super Bowl viewers used their TiVo units. Not only did users pause and replay the infamous portion of the halftime show more than any moment during the game, but they also did the same for some commercials.

    TiVo's top two commercials, based on user behavior, are both from Bud Light: a romantic sleigh ride interrupted by a flatulent horse and a sharp-toothed dog demonstrating his unusual way of scoring a beer for his master.


Now, I have TiVo, and I'm wondering exactly how in the hell they track that, and if they're doing that...GULP...all the time...

And I quote:

Police in Houston, meanwhile, announced they won't pursue criminal charges against Jackson, Timberlake or the breast for their actions at Houston-based Reliant Stadium. The department said it received "multiple phone calls" from residents upset that Jackson wasn't being rung up for exposing herself and/or Timberlake wasn't being arrested for assaulting Jackson.

MTV's Freston: We Got 'Punk'd' by Jackson

SETH SUTEL
Associated Press

NEW YORK - MTV says it got punk'd by Janet Jackson. Tom Freston, the chairman and CEO of MTV Networks, said Tuesday neither his company nor CBS knew of plans for the bodice-ripping incident during the Super Bowl halftime show.

MTV and CBS landed in a world of trouble with outraged viewers and federal regulators looking into who knew of Jackson's plans to have Justin Timberlake grab off part of her costume during the show, which was produced by MTV.

"We were really ripped off. We were punk'd by Janet Jackson," Freston said, referring to MTV's reality show that makes celebrities the butt of practical jokes.

Freston, speaking at a panel discussion with other entertainment executives, noted that Jackson herself has said the decision to do the stunt was made without MTV's knowledge.

Jackson said the incident, which exposed her right breast, went further than planned. A spokeswoman for Jackson said a red lace garment was supposed to remain when Timberlake tore off the outer covering.

"When you're doing live television ... there's a great reliance and trust you have to put in the performers," Freston said in an interview after the panel talk. "And our trust was violated by the performer."

"Janet Jackson isn't the type of person you would think would be doing that," Freston said. "So yes, we were surprised, but such is the nature of what live TV can be."

Freston said in the interview that he welcomed the Federal Communications Commission's decision to investigate the matter, which he said would prove that the show's producers and broadcasters had no prior knowledge of Jackson's plans.

As for avoiding such missteps in the future, Freston said: "I suppose we'll be more on our toes about getting punk'd, as it were. ... We clearly know the difference between late night on MTV and the Super Bowl halftime show."

Freston had been speaking on a panel sponsored by The Conference Board and The Week magazine along with Ron Meyer, president and COO of Vivendi Universal Entertainment and Robert Shaye, co-chairman, co-CEO and founder of New Line Cinema.

Good thing. Charges like those on your permanent record can really screw up a breast's chance of finding work later in life.

They've been doing that at least since the 2002 Super Bowl (lubbockonline.com).

    The NFL has been paying TiVo for so-called "audience measurement" data.

    DVRs can monitor viewer habits. . .

    Privacy advocates have decried such technologies as invasive, but TiVo officials say they do not pass along information that would identify individual viewers.

    When gathering customer marketing research, TiVo says it does not link viewer data to their name, gender or age only into one big database that can identify users by ZIP code.

DUMBEST... LAWSUIT... _EVER_.

Knoxville woman files suit over halftime show-induced 'injury'

A Knoxville woman filed a proposed class action lawsuit Wednesday against Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, MTV, CBS and Viacom, contending she and other viewers were injured by their lewd actions during the Super Bowl halftime show.

Terri Carlin filed her lawsuit "on behalf of all Americans who watched the halftime show" in federal court in Knoxville.
...
"As a direct and proximate result of the broadcast of the acts, (Carlin) and millions of others saw the acts and were caused to suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury," the lawsuit filed by Knoxville attorney Wayne A. Ritchie II states.

It doesn't specify the type of serious injury.
...
Because the game is broadcast worldwide, Ritchie also wrote that the actions harmed the "standing and credibility" of Americans throughout the world.

Carlin's lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages worth billions.

Dumb question for you all:

What was the parental TV box rating (e.g TV-MA, TV-14) and related letters (NSV) during the halftime segment and for the overall game?

Considering "tits" is one of the 7 words, yes I do.

OK, now to subject #2...which I'll do in open letter form:

Dear *cough cough* Madam,

Are you making a morality statement or are you seeking injury damages? Pick a singluarly retarded set of grounds for a lawsuit and stick with it, please. This preliminary ruling should come back somewhere between 5-10 minutes, depending on how long the gutlaugh by the judge is. Personally, if it were me presiding over the case i'd take the complaint to the bathroom with me, and use it in lieu of toilet paper.

Yes, showing boobies on television is bad, although don't speak for all of us when you say "all Americans". Yes, I'm aware some people were so mortified that they stood up shocked so fast that the stick up their collective ass bent backwards. But then there were some of us who had a little snicker about it, went to the kitchen to make a plate of Chinese platter for the second half and didn't give it a second though until the headlines the next day.

In other words, not all Americans sat in front of the TV like the audience during the opening number of "Springtime For Hitler". Some of us just don't care. You're either grandstanding or gold-digging, neither trait is what I'd call admirable. I advise taking up knitting, as it's something to occupy the time you seem to have on your hands as well as a way so that you never see anything you find offensive again.

Here's a dollar for punitive damages. Now off with you.

Much Love,
JM

So, you're gonna pay a dollar to EVERYBODY who jumps onto that lawsuit? I'm sure there's a lawyer who'd be happy to take his 40 if you multiply it by millions of people. MAYBE you should have kept your mouth shut instead of trying to speak for the rest of us.

Great joke on SNL tonight, paraphrased....

"Justin Timberlake said that he was unaware as to the extent of the stunt, as he thought that Jackson would be wearing a bra underneath. A young, naive, innocent boy taken advantage of by a Jackson family member? Never!"
