Chavez Yanks "The Simpsons" from Venezuelan TV

I guess he couldn't nationalize it.

Station spokeswoman Elba Guillen said Monday that the decision to hand over the daily 11 a.m. time slot came after the National Telecommunications Commission received complaints from viewers.

"It had to be taken off," Guillen said. "They consider it to be a series that isn't appropriate for that time because it isn't appropriate for children."

In the interests of replacing inappropriate programming with something more tasteful in the time slot, they swapped it out for "Baywatch Hawaii".

"Baywatch," which features bikini-clad bombshells and musclebound hunks working as lifeguards on the Hawaiian coast, has been running in the 11 a.m. slot since Friday.

That's tasteful enough for me.
