Summary:

The Federal Communications Commission received several dozen specific complaints from the hundred-million-plus viewers of Super Bowl XLVII: some from a form-letter campaign after Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco used the f-word in the postgame show, some from viewers offended by the halftime show performance by Beyonce, and some from viewers offended by commercials (such as one in which a woman kissed a “nerd”).

Notes:

Deadspin.com also noted that the previous Super Bowl (XLVI) inspired FCC complaints as well, which ESPN's "Outside The Lines" used FOIA to obtain (http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/blog/_/name/assael_shaun/id/7692328/hundreds-complain-fcc-nfl-super-bowl-halftime-appearances-madonna-mia-nicki-minaj).
