The Parents Television Council is in outrage over CBS‘s new show title, $#*! My Dad Says. The show’s title comes from the twitter account that shares the same moniker and was the basis for the new sitcom. Tim Winter, the President of the PTC, said, “CBS intentionally chose to insert an expletive into the actual name of a show, and, despite its claim that the word will be bleeped, it is just CBS’ latest demonstration of its contempt for families and the public.”
I don’t think it’s as big of deal as the PTC is making it out to be, but then again, I’m not a parent. I can tell you that if the kids don’t learn it on TV, they’re bound to pick it up at school by the age of 5. We can’t shelter our kids forever, rather let them know what’ right, and wrong. Am I being too liberal about this?
