Oh deary, deary me! Not “Politically correct situations with a h*mosexual couple”! One Million Moms is at it again, but we’re not sure why they feel the need to asterisk out the ‘o’ in homosexual. Apparently, everything is offensive to them. Especially TV shows like “Camp”.
They are busy crowing over the fact that, supposedly, Geico, Lexus and Petsmart have pulled their ads from NBC’s “Camp”. Their ads haven’t been on the show for two weeks now!
Which usually means that they just haven’t been on there. After all, watch a show like “Castle” and you usually end up with different ads week to week and throughout the month, but One Million Moms hasn’t figured that one out.
One Million Moms whines that:
NBC’s newest program, “Camp,” could be misleading to parents with this title, but 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 this program (and even in its commercials) is inappropriate for tweens and teens and will send the wrong message to America’s youth. New episodes air on Wednesday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.
They go on to say that these are the unacceptable- to them of course- content in the program:
Teen female character said to her mother, “I lost my virg*nity at 13. But it doesn’t surprise me. I have a slut for a mom.”
One mother said, “This is a s*x camp!” after she caught her daughter with the camp director’s son and her husband with another camper’s mom.

And their latest missive ends with “NBC’s newest show is irresponsible and tasteless. 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.” They’ve asked their 50000 supporters to contact “Bertolli (Unilever), Dodge/Ram (Chrysler Group LLC), Celebrex (Pfizer), Applebee’s, Colgate Total (Colgate-Palmolive) and Macy’s” to demand they stop advertising. So far, it seems that NBC hasn’t had to start shilling gold buying companies yet.
Well, if your kids are up at 10pm on a weekday maybe you really aren’t paying attention to what they’re watching and shouldn’t complain, huh?
“Camp” has been slowly going down in the ratings. Last week, while some of us were watching the season premiere of “Face Off”, the ratings had dropped down to 3.41 million for “Camp”. It debuted with 5 million viewers.
Still, that doesn’t mean that it’s been canceled. After all, “Save Me” had to hit around 2 million before it finally got canceled. Still, don’t be surprised if “Camp” gets the boot in the long run as its ratings seem rather anemic.
To date, One Million Moms has not been able to actually prove that they have gotten a show canceled. They just assume that they have when the show that they have protested gets canceled even though it has abysmal ratings. So far, they have protested and called for companies to pull their advertising from shows like The Fosters and Glee. In fact, the list of shows that they’ve successfully not gotten canceled is a lot bigger than the one that they’ve gotten canceled.
