What's wrong with this picture

Japanese TV has apologized for a New Year's Eve broadcast in which it appeared there were a bunch of topless women on stage.

"The dancers, who all appeared to be topless and wore skimpy bikini-style bottoms and feathered head-dresses, covered the stage during a performance by singer DJ OZMA, prompting about 250 viewers to phone in and complain."

They get a bevy of hot, topless Japanese girls, and we get the mealy-mouthed Carson Daly on our New Year's countdown-to-midnight broadcast. Oy.

I was at an apartment party so I didn't get to control the channel, but I was telling the hostess that a stroke-afflicted Dick Clark would still be better than that little annoyance.
