After an incident at the Emmys the FCC overreacts and begins to censor anything and everything that may be viewed as unpleasant. So Peter gets the idea to start his own cable network dedicated to all of the "smut" television once offered. Lois, naturally being uncomfortable with this contacts the FCC who then shuts Peter down. Feeling that shutting him down is not enough the FCC then decides to begin censoring life. Written by
