Three Advertisers “Pull” Ads From The Fosters: One Million Moms Crows

The_Fosters_logoOnce more with feelers! Sorry, feeling. One Million Moms is busy crowing about having gotten “Pier 1 Imports, Popeye’s, Wendy’s and Royal Caribbean [to pull] their ads from the inappropriate ABC Family program.” That is The Fosters. Still showing no sign of understanding what is involved in advertising, One Million Moms continues their Don Quixote-esque attempts to claim some sort of victory.

One Million Moms notes that those company’s “ads were not present in the last two episodes.” But Olive Garden’s are. Could it possibly be that the demographic watching The Fosters just aren’t the kinds of people who eat at Popeye’s, Wendy’s or take cruses on Royal Caribbean?

Now, you may be familiar with the attempts by One Million Moms in the past to try and get the funding pulled from Pretty Little Liars, which is now in its fourth season. (You know, I really should probably catch up on that series).

One Million Moms in Duck Suits continues on:

New episodes will air on Monday evenings at 9:00pm ET/8:00pm CT. In addition, frequent promos are airing for this new series. Families should avoid the network completely; otherwise, you run the risk of viewing a commercial for this new, offensive program.

ABC Family’s show “The Fosters” is about two women raising foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together.

The ratings for this program are 14 DLV – which you would assume means it is suitable for 14-year-olds – but keep in mind this is the same rating “Family Guy” receives, which obviously is not appropriate for a “family” network.

I don’t know, it seems to me that The Fosters is perfectly appropriate for 14-year-olds. I guess they just don’t want all that lezziness infecting them. In fact, it seems rather odd that they are just scared about a show about a non-“traditional” family. We are, of course, waiting for the press releases about shows that involve other non-“traditional” families and shows that don’t involve lesbians.

I swear, they just hate the show because it gets their withered hearts racing.

Oh, and The Fosters has been doing very well in the ratings.

    Oh, oh, oh! Can I weigh in?

    First off, don’t these women know that commercial time is when you go pee and raid the fridge? Duh!

    Second, I’ve just got flash images from the 70′s and 80′s… oh hell, even now, of multiple sit-coms that featured multiple same-gender parents raising families. There was the one that gave us the Olsen twins, “Two and a half Men” now, I know there was at least one with two women friends. Shit, “Charles in Charge” wasn’t the most traditional family out there. Get a clue, ladies! Pretty much since “Leave It To Beaver” passed on to the great celluloid cathedral in the sky, TV has been pimping non-traditional households.

    They just didn’t sleep together (that we knew of).
