CBS is obviously thrilled with the decision, saying in a statement:
"We are gratified to finally put this episode behind us. It’s been more than eight years since we expressed deep regret for the Super Bowl halftime show.
As observers of this issue are aware, at that time we took immediate steps to implement delays on all live entertainment programs so that we could safeguard against similar incidents of unintended and spontaneous snippets of live broadcasts.
Since then, all we ever sought was an affirmation of the long established policy of balanced, consistent and deliberate indecency enforcement the FCC had followed for decades before the incident."
