    *"Thank goodness there is some quality TV on Channels 7, 9, and 11!"*

    Other than the British comedies (and I am unanimous in that) on 7, to what do you refer? Pledge drives? I mean drivel.

    We do not have the right to do evil. Lucifers plan is taught in several protestant churches. It wasn't forced righetousness it was universal salvation. Easy for people that want to eat drink and be merry.

    The difference is, while this young man states his opinion, he isn't trying to force us to not watch it. We still have the choice to watch or to not watch his show.

    Unlike Utah's state legislature. Our legislature doesn't believe in free agency. They'd rather just take choice away. Remind me, who wanted that plan?

    Amen, brother, If you don't like it, turn it off. What we don't need, however, is nanny groups and even preachy stars themselves telling us what to watch and not. If you don't like it, don't watch. I'm an adult; I'll decide for myself and I am not giving that right up to anyone else.

    I guess now Angus can donate all of the reported $350,000.00/episode, he makes to charity, to make up for his contribution to this "filth".

    Don't hold your breath!

    This kid is spot on.

    All I can say is, "Thank goodness there is some quality TV on Channels 7, 9, and 11!"

    Jay, your disdain of this television show is justified (it really is lowest common denominator humor), but the nose-in-the-air piety you use to blanket all prime time actors as moral degenerates gets old. And don't so easily dismiss the ability of a religion to "brainwash" adherents. Especially at 19.

    The true test of Mr. Jones's moral convictions will be if he returns all the salary he earned on this show after he became a legal adult at 18.

    I turned my TV off 24 years ago and never missed it. I listen to people talking about the shows on TV at work and am daily made glad again.
