Judge issues warrant for Lohan arrest

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- A judge issued a warrant Thursday for Lindsay Lohan's arrest after the actress missed a mandatory hearing, and authorities say she could be arrested at the airport when she returns from the Cannes Film Festival. Bail was set at $100,000.

Her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said Lohan's passport was stolen while she was at the Cannes Film Festival and was unable to return to Los Angeles in time for Tort when she returns.

Parents group angry at title of CBS series

NEW YORK -- A parents group is threatening CBS affiliates with challenges to their broadcast licenses if they air the network's new comedy with a title that alludes to an obscenity.

The Parents Television Council, which monitors decency issues, criticized CBS for picking up a comedy series called ''(Bleep) My Dad Says'' that is based on a popular Twitter feed. Instead of the word, the CBS title uses a series of symbols.

The group said it will challenge the broadcast license of any CBS affiliate that airs the series or promotions for it before 10 p.m. CBS has scheduled the comedy for Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. It stars William Shatner as the father whose politically incorrect musings are put out on Twitter by his son.

Tim Winter, president of the Los Angeles-based organization, said he was aware that CBS was developing a series based on the Twitter sensation, but ''we couldn't imagine that a network would actually name a program either with an expletive or with the expletive ostensibly bleeped out.
