MTV is debating on whether or not they should renew an animated program "Where My Dogs At?" after it received negative criticism, among other things, for an episode that poked fun of Snoop Dogg's occasional appearances where he is accompanied by women who have dog collars around their necks and leashes that are held by the famous rapper.

"We certainly do not condone Snoop's actions and the goal was to take aim at that incident for its insensitivity and outrageousness," MTV spokesman Jeff Castaneda said this week. "Even one of the dogs, a main character on the show, states, `I find that degrading and I am a dog.'"

So our question is, what do you think? Does anything go in the name of comedy? Is the show a clever way of the music station to make fun of its artists, or is it just another way to degrade women?
