The CCTV tower, a.k.a. the Big Boxer Shorts under construction.
Derogatory nickname for CCTV (China Central Television), the state-run national network. “AV” is Chinese slang for “adult video,” i.e. pornographic film.

CCAV became a popular term when CCTV’s evening news broadcast a piece about the need to crack down on adult videos. The term is often used to describe CCTV when the media organization's actions seem particularly hypocritical.

CCTV is often a target of netizen mockery. Han Han, China’s most popular blogger, took aim when the new CCTV headquarters, still under construction, caught fire in early 2009.
