ABC Loves Cougars - As Long As They're Fictional

Crossposted on EvilSlutopia.com

We already know how the One Million Moms feel about cougars. So of course, we were surprised that they hadn't (yet?) taken any action against the new ABC show Cougar Town... especially since they already bashed its lead-in show Modern Family without having even seen it.

Cougar Town follows the story of a recently divorced single mother as she "explores the honest truths about dating and aging in a beauty and youth obsessed culture" and stars Courteney Cox.

Even more surprising than the fact that we haven't received any OMM action alerts yet... is that ABC is being a little bit anti-cougar themselves! (Or, you know, anti-real-cougar.) Apparently the dating website CougarLife.com tried to run a commercial during the show, but ABC said they didn't feel it was "appropriate". The website's founder Claudia Openkelder released a statement:

It appears the executives at ABC seem a little too insecure to allow the notion of real world cougars to exist anywhere other than in the realm of fiction. [via PerezHilton.com]

The One Million Moms Against A Modern Family

[Cross-posted from Evil Slutopia.]

Remember a few days ago when I said that it seems like the One Million Moms are just phoning it in with their action alerts lately? Well, I spoke too soon. This week, the Moms are targeting the new ABC comedy Modern Family, which premieres tonight. It doesn't seem like they actually bothered to watch the premiere before condemning the show, but thanks to an advanced screening offer from Television Without Pity, I was able to watch it earlier today so that I'd know just how wrong the Moms are this time.

Let's break down their barely-there action alert:

Let ABC know you will not be watching 'Modern Family' ABC's new comedy "Modern Family" series premiere is Wednesday, September 23rd at 9:00/8:00 central. ABC claims "Modern Family" will be their # 1 show, but most Christians would disagree.

More Creative Censorship from the One Million Moms

The One Million Moms have taken a short break from their crusade against The Secret Life of the American Teenager to protest some new ads from Carl's Jr./Hardee's. Here's the action alert (emphasis mine):

Hardee's and Carl's Jr. (CKE Restaurants) will never learn. They are back at it again with several more disgusting ads. Though this time Hardees ad isn't visually explicit, the words and innuendo are loaded with s-xual nuance. It features their new "Biscuit holes." In the ad, various customers individually name them using such verbiage as B holes, A holes, dingle balls, and biscatles (as in testicles). Sister company, Carl's Jr., has just launched its newest in a series of raunchy s-x-laden ads.

Sex Kills on ABC Family

The One Million Moms are at it again. They really don't like the new season of the Secret Life of the American Teenager. They disliked it so much that they're asking Kellogg to pull their ads from the show. (Apparently Hershey already stopped sponsoring it).
 
First of all, let's take a moment to laugh out loud at the fact that are still typing the word "sex" as s*x. Hilarious! Anyway... on to the show.
 
I was sort of on the fence the first time we looked at this show, but I've now decided that it is a complete piece of garbage. I agree with the OMM that the show sucks, but again we really disagree on the WHY.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager

[This blog entry was previously published at EvilSlutopia.com]

While I was making fun of the One Million Moms for their protest against The Cougar, I mentioned their previous campaign against The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Even though their complaints are a little bit old news, it's still considered an active issue on the OMM site and The Secret Life's new season starts tomorrow. So since we just love to make fun of them anyway, here's my take on it.

An increasingly popular TV show titled "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" combines anything and everything a mother tries to protect her children from viewing and rolls it into one soap opera for teens.

ABC Family is responsible for showing such racy content, when instead it should be adhering to its name by airing family-friendly content.

Oh no! Not the s*x!

  
So the One Million Moms are at it again. This time instead of harassing Miley Cyrus, they are taking on the TV Land reality show The Cougar. For those of you who don't know (which is probably all of you since I haven't been able to find one person yet who has actually watched this show) the Cougar is a Bachelor/Bachelorette-type dating show in which an 40-year-old woman must choose among men in their 20s.

Apparently they find this show really really offensive and keep contacting its sponsors one-by-one until they pull their ads. Now there are plenty of reasons not to like this show. PLENTY. But the One Million Moms are against it for all the wrong reasons, in my opinion. And frankly, their complaints are just so damn hilarious that's it kind of hard to take them seriously at all.

Protect the Children from Flaccid Penises

Apparently there's a bill that has been reintroduced in Congress that will protect our fragile, delicate children from the horrors of old men talking about Viagra. Yes, the Families for ED Advertising Decency Act would ban advertisements related to erectile dysfunction from TV and radio during "daytime" hours (between 6am and 10pm). Obviously I have some mixed feelings about this.

"My penis is old and it's flaccid. I want to protect you from it."

On the one hand, I am sick of seeing constant commercials about four hour erections (and it only seems fair to ban these ads if they're already pulling certain condom ads) but are they really indecent? And are they any more indecent than a lot of other television that airs between 6am and 10 pm? More indecent than soap operas or reality shows like Rock of Love? More indecent than the O'Reilly Factor? (We know how much Bill O' loves Viagra!) And how about the many episodes of Law & Order or CSI that are on all day long that often contain some kind of violent rape? That is probably much more disturbing to children than a guy trying to throw a football through a tire swing.
