The End of Family TV is a Reflection of Our Culture Values as a Whole - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 10/28/14

10/28/14 (transcript may appear different from audio)

Growing up I remember watching T.G.I.F. Friday nights on ABC. The block of shows were geared toward the family and they were overall pretty clean. Full House and Steve Urkel’s show were just two of the shows that aired on the primetime block. Well, the days of family sit-coms that are really for the entire family to view are over. Some of the “family” shows coming on TV according to the NYPost.com are not really shows you’d wanna watch with the entire family. Some of the shows mentioned such as “The Millers” and “Mom” are full of sex jokes and language that you’d hope your kid wouldn’t use. The article states that family hour on TV is over which is true, but just remember that the values that are on our TV shows, in our movies, in our music, are all a reflection of the values of America as a whole. There has been a decline in the overall morals of the country and our TV is just a reflection of the values that are dying off in our culture at large. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
