After airing his racy finale at the American Music Awards Nov. 22, ABC television (whose parent company is the family-friendly Disney Corporation) cancelled Lambert's Nov. 25 appearance on "Good Morning America." Other networks jumped at the chance to welcome the male pop belter in place of "GMA."
In a new turn of events, ABC has also nixed Lambert's late-night appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve."
Lambert broke the news on his Twitter page, telling fans, "don't blame them. It's the FCC heat." NBC's Jay Leno will feature Lambert in the near future, and other New Year's Eve plans are currently underway.
