gossipscene200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - The FCC was hoping that regulations would go into effect for primetime television, but a federal appeals court shut down their efforts ... claiming that the move was "unconstitutionally vague."

A few of the shows deemed possibly too sexy: CW's Gossip Girl and the new 90210. Also on Survivor, a contestant was caught topless during a scene...however, the network blurred out her private area.

Several newer shows including Friends With Benefits and Harry's Law show sexual situations and drug use.

One TV expert had this to say about the FCC's proposed regulations being ignored:

    "We have been living in an unbelievable netherworld of ambiguity and uncertainty with an amazing backlog of cases pending, when the culture, our society as a whole, has moved on. This new ruling, if it's upheld, lifts a cloud of uncertainty. It will make it easier to interpret the rules and not have to second-guess everything we want to put on air."
