Synopsis
This episode is a hilariously ham-handed slam at the FCC restrictions placed on network television after Janet Jackson's infamous Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction" (which is herein recreated--but not by Jackson!) Fed up at having his favorite TV shows censored, Peter sets up his own network, "PTV", using the Griffins' basement as his studio. Although the programs cooked up by Peter and Brian manage to escape unscatched, the family soon finds the FCC slapping regulations on their everyday activities! The opening scene of this episode might very well have set a record for the number of pop-culture references within a 60-second period. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
