Parents Television Council Won't Give Up Their Fight Against CBS

The Parents Television Council (PTC) has been lashing out against CBS for their new show $#*! My Dad Says, but both CBS and show star William Shatner don't seem to care.

In an effort to continue their fight, the PTC is going to shift their focus from targeting national advertisers to "grassroots activists" who will "take their concerns directly to their hometown CBS affiliates and each affiliate's local advertisers."

Tim Winter, President of the PTC, says they'll hound local advertisers for CBS affiliates, in an effort to get them to refuse to advertise during the show. Good luck with that!

In response, CBS has said that the show will adhere to all of the network's standards, and they've made the following statement:

"Parents who choose to do so will find the show can easily be blocked using their V-Chip."

CBS makes a solid point. And honestly, PTC - this sounds like a lot of work for something that isn't THAT big a deal.

Just be happy that CBS has elected to use dollar signs and exclamation points instead of shit the actual word.

    The PTC needs to get the stick out of their ass. Who really cares? On my cable guide it only says My Dad Says. Why do people have so much time to worry about such nonsense??? Does anyone really think kids will be corrupted by this?

    EXCUSE ME IF I'M WRONG HERE BUT I THINK IT'S CALLED EITHER CHANGE THE CHANNEL OR TURN THE FUCKING THING OFF. WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T WATCH. JUST DON'T FUCKING TELL ME WHAT TO WATCH.

    i believe its the job of the individual parents of children to decide what its appropriate for their kids to watch. NOT some rediculous council. who gave them the right to police what you or i or any other adult who is capable of making a decision for themselves watches on tv. its called changing the channel nimrods. can't believe i just said nimrods. and please excuse my horrible grammar.

    The PTC motto is - 'Because our children are watching'. It needs to also say: '…and we need tv to keep them from annoying us, but we need to be kinda responsible parents and make sure what they are watching isn't going to poison their little cheese-brains. So, sorry for the rest of you, but we need tv to be filled with nothing but g-rated, sugary crap.'
