Parents Televison Council Vs. NBC: Playboy Edition

ptc wants playboy club off the air

The Parents Television Council (PTC) are at it again!

Last we heard from the PTC, they were trying to get Rihanna’s new video off of BET…but they failed.

Looks like they’re not letting that get them down though, because now they’re calling for NBC affiliates to NOT air The Playboy Club, which premieres in September, because it “glorifies and glamorizes” the pornography industry.

Here’s what PTC president Timothy F. Winter had to say about it:

“Putting a veneer of sophistication on an industry that exploits women and destroys families is not laudable, it is disgraceful. Whatever positive spin you may wish to put on the series, it is undeniably a betrayal of the trust you have built over the years with America’s families ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ the owners of the broadcast airwaves that you will be using to force this content into the living rooms of every family in your community.”

We would understand where the PTC were coming from if the show were going to air earlier in the day, but the fact is it will be airing at 10 p.m. It’s reasonable for a network to air adult-oriented content during that time slot. If it were 3 p.m., that would be different!

Do U agree with the Parents Television Council? Should NBC drop The Playboy Club?
