The Simpsons back on Venezuelas TV screens

Washington, Apr 18 (ANI): After being kicked off from Venezuelas daytime airwaves, The Simpsons is back on air, and this time it is being shown much earlier than the previous broadcasting time.

Televen TV, the Venezuelan network returned Matt Groening’s brainchild to the airwaves on the night of April 16, this time running the series at 7 p.m. as opposed to its previous scheduling of 11 a.m., when it was apparently consumed by an impressionable and much younger demographic.

The Simpsons was yanked from the air last week after the National Telecommunications Commission reported receiving viewer complaints about the iconic program, reports E! Online.

While the nature of the complaints were not released, and the Televen station manager said no specific Simpsons-related complaints were logged, officials did say the show was potentially in danger of violating the country’s Law of Social Responsibility in Radio and Television.

Earlier this week, the NTC said Televen may also face a fine or even be taken off the air for up to three days, for failing to promptly remove The Simpsons from the daytime schedule after preliminary warnings. (ANI)
