Toyota severs ‘Nip/Tuck’ ties


After reading this article I just had to laugh. I am also VERY glad I don't own a Toyota. The show airs each week at 10pm Tues nights. Are parents really that worried about their teens watching the show that it might negatively impact an advertiser of cars? I guess Toyota wants to appeal to old farts now. The Parents Television Council needs to get a hobby. Go work with local police to setup a speed trap or something. Parents should be responsible for what their kids watch not some council! Put limits on the TV, use blocking on programming, but stop whining about it with some petition.

Here's a sample of what the PTC has to say about Nip/Tuck if you want to get a good laugh:
" of the most sexually explicit, profane, and violent television programs in the history of American television" ...."we must warn you - the content is extremely graphic".... "utter disregard for TV decency standards" ..... "horrific content" .....

Read how the PTC describes a few of the scenes:

Hey PTC, here's TWO MIDDLE FINGERS UP for your opinion and your "big brother" efforts! Have a nice day! :)

i totally agree with what you wrote here, for instance in taiwan..there are some stupid groups always trying to "destroy" other's business.....i think parents should pay more attention instead of rely on some stupid fundation claims how they can help them to grow their kids.....if they don't know how..they don't have kids

mani, thanks for the comment. It really bothers me that these groups have any impact whatsoever. They should find other hobbies! :)
