'Nip/Tuck' Program Banned In Oregon Jail

“Nip/Tuck,” has been pulled from the airwaves at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution.

The show had become quite popular for the inmates because of its gory surgery and sexual innuendo.

“We decided it was all too much,” Doug Harder, a spokesman for the medium-security prison in Pendleton, told The Oregonian recently. “Way too graphic.”

During one episode of the FX show — which details the racy escapades of two Miami plastic surgeons — inmates reportedly gathered in a TV room kept harassing, whistling, and shouting at a female corrections officer, Harder said.

The officer filed a complaint with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, and the prison banned the show, Harder said.
