What has happened to Prime time TV
I have noticed lately that the commercials on TV are horrible for children. Now I am talking about basic channels. When our daughter is awake we watch about three channels beyond Disney and Nickelodeon. Those channels consist of the ABC Family Channel, the FoodNetwork and Home & Garden TV. And to clarify I consider prime time anything before 8pm.
While watching the FoodNetwork at around 7:30pm during a cake challenge with our 7 year old, who loves that show! There comes a commercial on the FoodNetwork; the commercial shows a blonde woman talking about would she rather makeout with some guy or cook. Then she says you should watch her show "B**ch'n Kitchen". This promptly was answered by my child "Yea, B**ch'n Kitchen". Just great FoodNetwork that is just what I wanted my kid to learn.
So really I ask what has happened to what they use to call family TV time? Or more importantly when Grandma calls to yell at me for teaching my daughter a bad word. Can I transfer the phone call to a FoodNetwork executive?
