U.S. wrestling TV show 'SmackDown' under fire SmackDown, a popular U.S. professional wrestling television show, should be taken off air in Indonesia, a cabinet minister says after speculation a boy may have been killed by children mimicking the fight moves.

'Year of Living Dangerously' airs in Indonesia The Oscar-winning movie The Year of Living Dangerously, set during the emergence of Indonesia's Suharto and banned by the former dictator, has been broadcast for what is believed to be the first time, in a sign the country may be coming to terms with its brutal past. But Indonesian viewers watching Sunday's broadcast of The Year of Living Dangerously were spared one of the film's most graphic scenes, a gunpoint massacre during the murderous chaos surrounding Suharto's 1965-1966 rise to power.

RCTI slammed as 70 million miss matches Holding the sole rights in Indonesia to broadcast the World Cup on television could turn out to be a poisoned chalice for RCTI as the House of Representatives condemned the country's oldest private television channel for ignoring the fate of 70 million potential viewers who were missing out on the month-long spectacular. Considering the number of viewers that RCTI was unable to reach, the House urged the nation's largest private TV station to share the rights with state broadcaster TVRI, which could reach 80 percent of the country's viewers.
