On the September 28 episode of “Ally McBeal,” a black Christian preacher discussed with his lawyer his problem with a female worker, with whom he had had an affair. “I realize that doesn’t make me an altar boy,” he says. “If you were an altar boy, you’d be with a priest,” the lawyer responds. Then adds, “Kidding.”
Let Roland McFarland, vice president of Broadcast Standards at Fox Network, know about Fox’s idea of “kidding.” Write to him at PO Box 900, Beverly Hills, CA 90213.
