History[ edit ] The Public Broadcasting Service , which features nudity in anthropological documentaries as well as some films, was the first network to display national programming that featured frontal female nudity on television. The Incredible Machine looked into parts of the human body and included in its opening scenes a fully nude woman in an artist's model pose; probably less for this than the innovative micro- and interior cinematography, this was for more than half a decade the most popular single program broadcast on the network. The special-event miniseries, Roots on ABC , featured some partial nudity of its cast, usually fleetingly, but more so than other commercial network programming in the US in the s. Throughout the United States, many metropolitan areas had independent television stations that were not affiliated with any of the national networks and showed programming only to people within their limited broadcast range. During the s, many of these stations experimented with content containing frontal female nudity in movies during prime time. Then, it was followed by a disclaimer that was repeated after each commercial break.

Criticism[ edit ] As with other reality shows, College Hill has received criticism from the black community. During its second season, some associated with Langston University made some complaints about the way the university, and black college students as a whole, were represented by the show. He likened BET to minstrel shows of the early 20th century. Virginia State University, the show's location for the third season, saw a drop in enrollment the following year. During its fourth season in the Virgin Islands, it caused an uproar. Alumni and parents sent e-mails and called the university.
