Parents Television Council Won’t Take CBS’s $#*! Lying Down

At its upfront yesterday, CBS revealed that the title of its new sitcom $#*! My Dad Says will not be pronounced "Bleep my dad says," but "Bleeping-sound-effect-used-to-mask-the-word-shit my dad says." The Parents Television Council took almost 24 hours to respond: “CBS intentionally chose to insert an expletive into the actual name of a show, and, despite its claim that the word will be bleeped, it is just CBS’ latest demonstration of its contempt for families and the public.The title of this show is the opposite of fleeting (profanity) — it is bold, shameless, and in-your-face." Which is totally not what CBS was going for or anything. [Deadline]
