FCC Contest Supervision sign now



We, the undersigned respectfully petition the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to directly supervise game and competition shows that are broadcast to the public, to ensure integrity and legitimacy of those contests.

We propose a system in which a contest is supervised by one or more referees licensed by the FCC. These referees would be responsible for ensuring that the conduct of the contest complies with all federal laws and regulations governing contests. They would also ensure that the contest is conducted within its rules and with due regard for contestant safety. Referees would have enforcement authority, including taking any reasonable actions needed to negate the effect of a violation of contest rules or federal laws or regulations. Referees would be responsible for reporting to FCC any irregularities or violations that occured during the contest.

We feel this is necessary because often it is the producers who make the rules for a contest, and are also the ones enforcing those rules. We are of the opinion that this constitutes a significant conflict of interest. Though predetermination of televised contests is forbidden by federal law, and infractions are extremely rare, we feel that the conflict of interest on the part of producers increases the probability of a violation. Therefore, for the benefit of both contestants and viewers, we respectfully request the Federal Communications Commission to directly supervise televised contests as outlined above.
