PTC can't wait for the '90210' threesomes

902102

With the political season in full swing and the fall TV season near at hand, can the squawking of the Parents Television Council be far behind? That was a rhetorical question, and we all know the answer. The PTC's latest target is the remake of 90210, which hasn't even been screened for advertisers. The group fears the show might "glamorize drug and alcohol use along with casual teen sex, including threesomes." On a CW show featuring randy young hardbodies in Beverly Hills? I should hope so! The PTC is, of course, urging advertisers to take a pass. Threesomes, huh? Back in high school, I'd have settled for a decent onesome and a B in chemistry. Maybe they'll get lucky and the premiere will deliver a foursome. Then they'll really have something to TiVo. Er ... I mean boycott.
