'Survivor' Reveals a Bit Too Much for Watchdog Group
  (By Kelsey Mcneal -- Abc Via Associated Press)

CBS, the network that gave us the Nipple That Knicker-Knotted a Nation, now brings us the Peekaboo Penis.

The self-appointed watchdog group Parents Television Council has filed an indecency complaint with the Federal Communications Commission over the season debut of "Survivor: Gabon" -- ironically the first episode of this series to be broadcast in high-definition.

If you look closely at participants in a race, you see Marcus Lehman's little colonel "falling out" of his boxer shorts as he runs to the finish line, PTC reports. "The image was not obscured in any way," PTC notes in disgust. In fairness, the episode had a lot of pixelation -- just not of Lehman's male pride.

"Although this instance was brief, it was nonetheless shocking and purposeful," PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement.

CBS, in a statement, insisted it was "a completely unintentional, inadvertent and fleeting incident that was virtually undetectable when viewed in real time." "Fleeting" was the word of choice when the Super Bowl Nipplegate story broke, too. "In the first 24 hours after the broadcast, before freeze-frame images were widely posted online, we received one viewer comment from the 13 million who watched the telecast," the network said.

PTC had this to say about that:

"CBS's decision to hide behind excuses that the incident was 'fleeting' and didn't generate an immediate flood of complaints is the epitome of irresponsibility. The number of 'fleeting' penises we expect to see on broadcast television is zero."

Marcus Lehman’s penis exposed on Survivor

Marcus Lehman's penis exposed on Survivor
CBS is notorious for its often-unnecessary blurring of Survivor cast members. Anything deemed offensive—a bit too much breast, some pubic hair, a revealing bulge—gets a fuzzy spot placed over it. It’s so odd and amusing that there’s even now a video compilation of the “gratuitous blurring” from the first episode.
But on Tuesday’s two-hour premiere, something did not get censored: Marcus Lehman’s penis. In the second episode, during the combined immunity and reward challenge—a recreation of one from Survivor Africa—Marcus starts running and gets exposed.
He’s wearing loose-fitting boxers, and right after Jeff says “go” and everyone starts running, Marcus’ penis pops out for a few strides. It’s in both a close-up and a wide shot, and is extremely obvious if you’re looking for it. It’s even visible in the challenge video on CBS’ web site, at the 2:30 mark.
Oh La La has still photographs and Naked Straight Guys created a video that replays the moment in slow motion and zooms in—and sets the whole thing to ironic music complete with sound effects.
Update: CBS has removed and/or edited the videos on its site, and Metacafe removed the embeddable video. However, you can still watch it on the Naked Straight Guys blog. << PEEPEE warning! :P
