Warning: This blog may not be suitable for bedtime reading. The Parents Television Council has come out with its annual list of prime-time programs that are no-no’s for family viewing. Topping the list are Fox’s The War at Home (shown here), Family Guy and American Dad. “Families should not be deceived,” says L. Brent Bozell, president of the PTC. “The top three worst shows all contain crude and raunchy dialogue with sex-themed jokes and foul language. Even worse is the fact that Hollywood is peddling its filth to families with cartoons.” The O.C. is fourth on the list. Also listed as not the least bit family-friendly were CSI:, Desperate Housewives, Two and a Half Men and Cold Case. To keep your family innocent and free from exposure to adulterous, scantily clad women, violent crime scenes and raunchy cartoons, turn on Extreme Makeover or Three Wishes, says the PTC.
