'Monday Night Football' Introduction Garners Powell's Disappointment

FCC Chairman Michael Powell told CNBC he thought ABC’s new Monday Night Football introduction “disappointing. I wonder if Walt Disney would be proud.”
Disney-owned ABC Sports has apologized for the material, which generated complaints to the network and to the commission.
The opening featured an actress who drops her towel and jumps naked into the arms of Philadelphia Eagles player Terrell Owens. The actress was only shown from behind and above the waist after dropping the towel.
