If you like bad words, anti-heroes, and nudity on your favorite TV shows you can thank ‘NYPD Blue’

- 25 years ago, ABC premiered a cop show called “NYPD Blue,” and a bunch of advertisers, TV stations, and pro-family groups freaked out.
- That’s because the show featured rough language, nudity, and serious topics not common to commercial, broadcast TV at the time.
- Today, ‘NYPD Blue’ looks rather tame, and advertisers find their ads next to all sorts of far racier content without batting an eyelash.
- But the show’s complicated lead character, Andy Sipowicz, continues to influence TV.
