    Personally, I enjoy the show every year, I think that it was tastefully done, and no different than a Rosa Cha show, or a Cavalli intimo show for that matter...What do you guys think? :innocent:

    I wonder if they will make up for the show not being televised by selling copies of the show in the stores?

    And how soon before the government blocks our internet or satellite feeds?

    If Limited Brands and VS are pulling the plug primarily for other business reasons, that's fine. These companies are making money hand over fist and don't need this yearly spectacle to drum up sales.

    Maybe they don't feel drawing FCC attention is in their best interests either. Fair enough.

    But this is a massive slippery slope issue. The rest of the article has a ridiculous quote from the National Organization for Women claiming this as a victory. Those numbskulls are either not realizing the bigger picture or irresponsibly ignoring it. I'm sure the Parents Television Council won't be far behind. Morons.

    VS is untouchable as a brand. Even though the show is tacky and distant from the equally tacky merchandise, I tuned in every year to watch the big artillery of the modeling industry at work. From a marketing point, it was genius.

    The tyranny of the minority is at work here. What do I mean by that? Back in 2002 the FCC received 20 complaints about the show. 20! Yet it made news. None of the 12,000,000 that enjoyed the show bothered to write in. I wrote in with my support and received the dumbest canned response ever.

    me too. I personally like to see any type of fashion show broadcasted on television just because they are fun to watch. Interesting enough VS is putting on a show in Columbus (were I am) hopefully I can get a job as a dresser backstage.

    i don't find VS fashion show as disgusting or indecent! There is always a line between being liberals and being conservative. I am personally not opposed to the fashion show but that doesn't mean I like porn or I am vulgar! Of course VS show is all about lingerie and it is on national TV and that can be offensive to many people!
    Janet Jackson incident exposed that we as americans were overexposed to sexual images in the past and are now suddenly becoming overeactive. maybe's that's good!
    p.s those angel wings on the models are totally unnecessary, by the way.

    i don't know about the fashion show because parents can prevent children from watching it (though not often) but i hope the huge billboards promoting VS will be gone. i haven't seen many but when they were building a new store on 34th st. in ny, there was a huge ad of a model in lingerie and i know where other people are coming from but i don't think it's right to put it up so publicly because there are children in the city and i wouldn't want my child to see someone half naked and considered 'beautiful' and become influenced in a negative way.

    I've never watched the whole thing - but I have noticed that the lingerie gets worse every year :unsure:
    I don't think the shows indecent though - a bit over the top, but I guess that's the image they're going for

    I never watched that thing....EVER!

    So,of course,I could care less. They may have a good a eye for models,but why watch it when we can already see them in a decent designer's show? And I mean besides being scantily-clad...

    I say that if you don't like it, don't watch it. Simple as that. I am female and I DO like to watch the show. If they're not televising it for business reasons, that's fine with me. But if they're cancelling it because a small percentage just doesn't like it, well then that's ridiculous. I don't appreciate it when people are basically trying to control what I watch.

    My only complaint about the show is that it has become increasingly cheesy throughout the years. :innocent:

    I absolutely agree! Although I think that the shows have gotton better throughout the years, it is much more of a spectacle :flower:

    i believe there is a HUGE difference between the VS show and the superbowl halftime show. When america tuned in to watch the halftime show, they were not aware that a breast would be exposed. I believe it caught a lot of people off guard, including myself. Although I was not offended by Janets boob, I definitely thought that the halftime show was not the place for her to promote her new album by taking off her top. But when you sit down to watch the VS show, you are *hopefully* aware of the content that will be presented to you and there is a huge possibility that a "wardrobe malfunction" may occur.

    I am not a huge fan of the VS show, in fact i usually end up accidently missing it every year. But when I do happen to find time to watch it, it is always somewhat enjoyable and an overall good show. I do believe that using janets boob as an excuse to censor everything that might be seen by some people as inappropriate is just flat out ridiculous. Just because some people cant see the difference between a runway show and a peep show doesnt mean that we should all be denied the right to see it.
