One Million Moms might as well just put out something explaining what shows the like rather than continuing to put out complaints about the shows they hate. One Million Moms, which is actually about 995,000 people shy of a million, love to go after shows they hate including a lot o shows on NBC.
Now, One Million Moms claims that their attacks on the sponsors of shows works. They noted that they “will be as persistent [in going after Camp] as we were with NBC’s “PB Cl*b” in asking sponsors to pull their financial support. We had proof this works when “PB Cl*b” was canceled after only three episodes.” For those who can’t read passed the censorship, that would be Playboy Club- a show that was critically panned and had incredibly, incredibly low ratings.
Of course, they don’t mention the shows that they haven’t been able to get canceled like The Fosters or Glee or Family Guy, or that it took two seasons for them to “get” The B in 23″ or whatever that show was or that GCB, another show they hated, was in place for a full half season.
One Million Moms complained that the pilot preview of the show Camp included:
A boy saying, “By June 15th, I’m playing with bo*bs, both hands, full cupping.” Later he says, “We need c*ndoms.” (An asterisk is used to ensure our emails get through to those who have signed up to receive our alerts. Otherwise, referencing specific words would cause our emails to be blocked by some internet filters.)
The camp director says, “Pois*n Ivy rash is very contagious. Don’t touch yourself. I know what it is like with you boys. But you got to give it a rest.” Later, the director is making out with another ad*lt counselor on her office desk.
One Million Moms complains that “NBC continues to produce inappropriate programs and plans to add to that growing list. Let’s voice our concern and let NBC know of our disapproval of their newest program “Camp.” The title says it all, and with a TV-14 DLS rating you can be assured this will not be for family viewing. The name of the show along with the age of the cast members will attract young viewers. The content in the preview for this program is inappropriate for tweens and teens and will send the wrong message to America’s youth.”
They go on to whine that “NBC’s newest show is irresponsible and tasteless, especially to air when families are likely to be watching and during the summer when kids are out of school and may stay up later in the evenings. It is appalling that NBC intends to air a show that features immoral behavior in a positive light while attempting to draw in young viewers with the title and adolescent plot of the program. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves.”
The show could be airing at midnight on Comedy Central and they’d claim that children could be watching it. For that matter, apparently children are watching Robot Chicken despite the fact that they shouldn’t be.
In fact, so far, I’m surprised they haven’t put out a missive attacking Despicable Me for having a commercial involving the song YMCA by the Village People. I mean, come on…that song is incredibly gay.
