The Peacock doesn't love Pamela Anderson. The Elton John concert special that NBC aired on Monday night originally featured a performance of "The Bitch Is Back" as the oversize screen behind John displayed the Stacked siren, scantily clad (duh) and doing a pole dance. Before broadcast, however, the Peacock network dropped the naughty number, declaring it "not appropriate" for the family-hour time slot. And yet Joey lasts a season and a half?
