Citing Concerns for Kids, Venezuela Replaced The Simpsons with Baywatch

Venezuelan broadcasting regulator Conatel has forced The Simpsons off the air during the morning cartoon hours, calling it a bad influence on children, and replaced it with ... Baywatch!

No. Really. Link

(The Simpsons are also causing controversy in another South American country, Argentina, when the show talked about Juan Perón)

What a shame! Baywatch is terrible! I can never get sick of The Simpsons...it's still relevant and hilarious today as when it first started. It's great that the former executive producers of the show is doing a new series. I can't wait!

Why does the article say "Hawaii Babewatch' instead of Baywatch?? Cultural differences, translation glitch, or some terrifying bastard spawn of Baywatch?

This reminds me of the Simpsons episode where the family goes to Brazil (I think it was Brazil) and they watch the "kid" show with the shapely ladies dancing around with tassels on.
