Earlier this week, CBS sent out a memo to performers attending this year’s Grammy awards outlining what would be considered inappropriate dress for Sunday’s show. What if we applied these same rules to the network’s other big Sunday broadcast, the NFL, would it meet the Eye’s standard and practices?

-kindly confirm receipt of s&p standards-
CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.
Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare flesh under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack.
Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic.
Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure.
Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts.
Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared.
OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST.This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera.
Finally, The Network requests that any organized cause visibly spelled out on talent’s wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory.
Pretty sure the Titans cheerleaders are violating at least three or four of the Grammy guidelines. At least they’re in good company, because Beyonce already broke all the rules with her Super Bowl halftime performance on the net last weekend.
