NEW YORK (AP) -- A watchdog group says broadcast television is implying a lot more nudity in prime time than it used to.
The Parents Television Council said Monday that its researchers found 76 instances where a person appeared nude, with private parts obscured, in prime time last season. It happened on 37 different shows.
The group says that's a sharp rise from the 15 instances the networks aired the previous season.
Examples include a couple skinny-dipping on "The Bachelor," Howie Mandel jokingly appearing nude in his dressing room at "America's Got Talent" and a naked man jumping out of a car trunk in the candid camera show "Betty White's Off Their Rockers."
In each case, the full nudity is obscured by pixilation or strategically placed objects.
