Sometimes, {{Fanservice}} gets a bad reaction from certain members of the audience (often MoralGuardians), mainly because ''children can see it''. Shock and horror!

This reaction is generally the reason for {{Watershed}} and SafeHarbor laws.
----
!!Examples:
* ''DancingOnIce''. Holly Willoughby (a former underwear model and [[ParentService children's TV presenter]]) is co-presenter here and got some complaints after turning up for a number of shows in [[AbsoluteCleavage very low-cut outfits]]. In response to complaints, a later dress was apparently more demure, until she [[SexyBacklessOutfit turned around]].
* ''{{Cavegirl}}'' got some complaints for having the main character in a milder form of the "{{fur bikini}}"- in a Creator/{{CBBC}} show.
* {{Moral Guardian|s}} Jack Thompson got notoriously annoyed at the fact that a game pitched for a T-rating, ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}'', could have the option of [[GayOption making the protagonist bisexual]]. As in, he can smooch boys the same as he smooches girls, which is comparatively tame. He attempted to claim that this constituted hardcore gay porn- in a children's game! Gasp! Never mind that most teenagers already know that yes, real life gay people exist, and it's mostly done for the benefit of the {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s playing it.[[note]]Not to mention that...y'know...the game is about bullies and their victims beating the shit out of each other.[[/note]]
* Complaints are starting to be levelled at ''StrictlyComeDancing'' for female dance outfits that are little more than bikinis with frills.
* The low-cut dress that Music/KatyPerry wore in [[SesameStreetCred her appearance]] on ''Series/SesameStreet'' caused enough outcry that her segment was pulled from airing on television, instead having to settle for becoming an internet phenomenon.
* Although ''Series/DoctorWho'' has a ''long'' tradition of casting gorgeous female companions as [[ParentService "something for the dads"]], the most recent, Karen Gillan, attracted some short-lived opprobrium for being [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/doctor-who/7554825/Viewers-think-new-Doctor-Who-is-too-sexy.html too sexy]]. It all seemed to start with the miniskirted Police costume (literally a costume - in-universe, she's a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kissogram#Variants kissogram]]) she wore in her first appearance. How has the production team addressed this issue? [[TakeThat They put her back in the same costume for the Christmas Special]]. Possibly in the spirit of equal opportunity, they also put Arthur Darvill back in his Roman Soldier get-up. Why? Um, they were in the honeymoon suite...
** Amy's legs are practically a character in their own right. Quite deservedly.
** Then they did the UsefulNotes/ComicRelief special, Space/Time, which is about 14 minutes of just GettingCrapPastTheRadar, with a good five minutes of the characters discussing Amy's skirt, with Amy flirting with [[ScrewYourself her future self]] to boot.
* The English dub of the fifteenth episode of ''Anime/{{Digimon Frontier}}'' [[{{Bowdlerise}} removed a scene]] showing [[{{TheChick}} Zoe]] [[{{Fanservice}} in a red bikini]]. However, it's mostly for the word "sexy" being in the scene in GratuitousEnglish; we see ''all'' the other swimsuits she tried on, and even the scene where she is nearly walked in on while undressing (we see it from the inside; she stops when she hears a noise ''just'' before her shirt was about to show some {{Underboob|s}}. This episode arguably had the highest "''how'' did that get [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar left in]]?" quotient of the franchise. (In fact, most serious contenders for that award are in that season.)
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''. The BBC received one hundred complaints for the episode ''A Scandal in Belgravia'', for showing a nude Irene Adler (Lara Pulver), censored only by [[SceneryCensor the scenery]] and her own limbs/position. Much of the uproar was because the show was aired before the watershed, but it turned out the nude scenes were in fact shown after nine o'clock. It didn't very much to alleviate the ire of the MoralGuardians
* ''{{Tinsel}}''. The audience weren't too happy about all the romantic scenes between Angela Dede and her [[JailBait boytoy]] [[LikesOlderWomen Emil]].
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' had an InUniverse example where Moral Guardians were trying to get a show about a 16 year old female cop that dressed provocatively to a later timeslot.
* The anime for ''[[Manga/SaikinImoutoNoYousuGaChottoOkashiindaGa Recently, my sister is unusual.]]'' went through this, originally airing at 10:30 p.m. (which, unlike in other countries where this is past the watershed, is an hour many junior high and high school kids just getting out of cram school in Japan watch TV during). A media watchdog group took attention to a few risque scenes (particularly one where Hiyori tries to masturbate in Mitsuki's body) and made a public complaint, and the show was moved to 2:00 a.m. shortly after.
