President Chavez Done with Homer Simpson; Baywatch Hawaii Replaces Show
CARACAS, Venezuela — D'oh! A Venezuelan TV channel, under the watchful eye of President Hugo Chavez, has yanked "The Simpsons" off the air after a government agency ruled it may be inappropriate for children.
Taking its place: "Baywatch Hawaii."
Televen TV station spokeswoman Elba Guillen said Monday that the decision to hand over the daily 11 a.m. time slot came after the state National Telecommunications Commission said it had received complaints from viewers.
"It had to be taken off," Guillen said. "They consider it to be a series that isn't appropriate for that time because it isn't appropriate for children."
