Parents Television Council Files Complaint Over 'X Factor' Flasher Paula Abdul wasn't the only person 'The X Factor'flasher made sick during the singing talent show's premiere. Fox's decision to air Geo Godley's bottomless routine, albeit with a blurred X over his privates, has now drawn the ire of the Parents Television Council.

According to TMZ, the advocacy group announced it has filed a formal indecency complaint with the FCC against the show.

"The prolonged, previously videotaped footage of a contestant dancing nude on the 'X Factor' stage represents a conscious decision by the producers – with the approval of the network's broadcast standards department -- to intentionally air this content in front of millions of families during hours when they knew full well that children would be watching," PTC President Tim Winters said in a statement.

The formal complaint focuses on the fact that 'The X Factor' was billed as family-friendly viewing, but then went in a different direction. "Families were led to believe 'The X Factor' would be family-friendly viewing and were then assaulted by graphic nudity," the complaint reads.

Although the FCC's ability to enforce decency standards is currently being litigated in the courts, the PTC is nonetheless requesting that all Fox affiliates that aired the show be levied with "a Notice of Apparent Liability."

Earlier this year, the PTC targeted 'The Playboy Club' and MTV's 'Skins.'
