The FCC has just announced that it’s denied complaints against the FX show “Nip/Tuck.”

We deny complaints received from individuals who have alleged that the television program “Nip/Tuck,” shown on the FX Network, or various episodes of the program, violate federal restrictions regarding indecent and obscene material. As set forth below, the Commission has indicated that it does not regulate cable indecency or indecency on satellite subscription
services, so we deny that aspect of the complaints. Moreover, nothing in the record indicates that
“Nip/Tuck” meets the legal test for obscenity, so we deny that aspect of the complaints as well.

Question is: Why did they investigate when they don’t regulate cable in the first place…?
