Comedy Central channel in India is run by Viacom18 Media (joint venture between Viacom and Network 18). The Delhi high court has placed ban for six days on this channel for showing up episodes of “Stand Up Club” and “PopCorn TV”, which aired in May and July 2012. The ministry stated that the episodes had “obscene dialog and vulgar words derogatory of women and hence appeared to offend good taste and decency.” It added: “The portrayal in the program did not appear suitable for unrestricted public exhibition and children.”

The court judgment instructed the network to fulfill the six-day suspension along with a fine of $333 (20,000 rupees).
