How Do Wetpaint Shows Sit with the Parents Television Council? Cover
If you're not familiar with the Parents Television Council, it is an advocacy group dedicated to keeping Mom and Dad informed on the evils of our favorite primetime pastimes. Based on violence, sex, and profanity, the PTC rates each show by green-lighting it, giving it a cautionary yellow, or putting a scary red warning on it. The PTC places a red label on 80% of the shows it reviews. While its intentions are all well and good, sometimes the PTC is a tad strict for our tastes. Here, we put each Wetpaint fave in the spotlight to see what the PTC has to say... because our children are watching — and by "our children," we mean us.
