TV hasn't been "safe" for families for a long time, and I'm just talking about the commercials.

Could see this coming years ago; we have total control of what we watch in our home by forgoing TV and watching DVDs we choose, know the content of, and know will be appropriate for the ages and interests of our children. It's not going to get better at the networks.

Modern Hollywood has an open and stated agenda of attacking traditional marriage and family asst every opportunity. Clearly, it is unsafe for families by deliberate design.

Modern television portrays marriage as a prison and parenthood as a cancerous disease. When traditional families are depicted at all, they are depicted as dysfunctional and disturbed. In these television families, fathers exist for the sole purpose of being made fun of.

Modern Hollywood portrays sex as a purely recreational activity that should be engaged in at any time with any person and the more deviant the activity, the better. No caring parent would expose a child to such vile filth.

I agree that's it's hard to find anything you can watch alone let alone with a family.
I love Blue Bloods with Tom Selick. It is about a police family who say grace over a meal and are shown going to church on Sunday.
I don't think it's suitable for younger children, but you care about the family - the grandfather - the children - the grandchildren and Tom!
Next week is the last episode of the season, but if it's on during the summer I will watch reruns!
So if you want to watch a great show, tune in!

"Modern Hollywood has an open and stated agenda of attacking traditional marriage..."

Can you cite someone in the entertainment business who has made such an "open" statement? The only "agenda" that Hollywood has is making money. They produce what will make the most profit for them. If people find it offensive, all they need do is change channels or turn the darned thing off. If enough people do that, shows get cancelled.

My television gets very little use because there is very little that I find worth watching. Much of it is moronic, badly conceived and written, offensive to thinking people, repetitive clones of other badly-written programs or just plain mediocre. There is far, far too much violence and mayhem. However, unless and until I'm forced to keep my television turned on and watch said junk, I'm not going to get up in arms about it. Instead, I "vote with my feet" by not watching it.

It is the sponsors which pay for the advertising that enables the networks to broadcast their shows. So if you don’t like the program, boycott their sponsors then the networks will sit up and take notice. I don’t think the networks really care if you switch channels but not patronizing their sponsors, that’s their bread and butter.
