The whole thing may have somethig to do with the fact that NBC is owned by General Electric, an Emerson Electric competitor.

You are totally missing the point.
Not everyone who watches network prime is intelligent enough to know they shnould not stick their hand down a sink (think young kids). In addition, if there were an accident traced back to this episode, the manufacturer could be dragged into the litigation. I'll guarantee you that NBC's commercial clearance department would not have approved an ad that shows a hand put into a disposal (for litigation reasons). Its about time the networks woke up and became more responsible with their programming...and hold themselves up to the same standards they expect from their sponsors. Hooray for the manufacturer.
