A federal appeals court said the Federal Communications Commission wrongly fined CBS and Janet Jackson, after her wardrobe malfunction at the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show.

The FCC said the network should been prepared for the potential "added shock" value.

140 million people watched the Super Bowl that year. Many went into shock after witnessing Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction. It happened so quickly, but thanks to TiVo curious minds could replay that fateful moment over and over.

Justin Timberlake "accidentally" pulled off part of her costume, and both he and Ms. Jackson (if you're nasty) were publicly berated.
