Perversion for Profit

TCM has moved TCM Underground to the overnight between Saturday and Sunday to make way for the new Friday night spotlight (which has a really nice graphics package, by the way). This week's Underground is a repeat of a programming block they ran just last October: the documentary Spine Tingler: The William Castle Story at 2:00 AM, followed by Macabre at 3:30. The only difference is that this week, Underground stars an hour and fifteen minutes earlier, which means TCM will have those extra 75 minutes to kill after Macabre.

One of the shorts running, is Perversion for Profit, a hilarious look at how porn is supposedly going to lead to our downfall. Back in the 1960s, it was porn; nowadays it's guns in video games; in between it was rap music or even satanic messages in rock music -- remember that moral panic? As regards Perversion for Profit, TCM's online schedule only lists everything filling out the block between the end of Macabre and the start of Sunday's first feature (New Morals For Old at 6:00 AM) as beginning at 4:45 AM. The good news, however, is that several people have uploaded Perversion for Profit to Youtube, so you can watch it whenver you want:
