MTRCB Puts Party Pilipinas on 6 Months Probation; Asks GMA-7 to Issue Public Apology
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has placed "Party Pilipinas" - GMA-7's Sunday musical variety show - on a six-month probation due to the sexually-charged scenes in Lovi Poe and Rocco Nacino's dance number on the show's January 27 episode.
While on probation, Party Pilipinas shall be placed on a per-episode basis which means that any violation of the MTRCB rules, laws, and regulations would mean placing the program off air without prejudice to other sanctions.
