• PaleyFest: Parents Television Council Reviews ABC’s New Shows

    by  • September 12, 2014 • Paleyfest • 2 Comments

    ABC is the final broadcast network to present some of the network’s new fall TV shows at PaleyFest, and the Parents Television Council has the abclogolatest!

    In good news, the PTC says that “Black-ish” and “Cristela” look promising for families, and should make for shows that don’t have much objectionable content.

    “Black-ish deals with serious questions of assimilation and race – but does so in the format of a family-friendly comedy.”

    And about “Cristela,” the PTC writes, “In this tremendously upbeat program, Cristela faces down her co-workers’ ignorance of Latino life with humanity and humor, while at home she handles her family’s attitudes with the same sunny yet sarcastic comedy.

    “At a Paley Center panel, the show’s creator and star, Cristela Alonzo, stated that she was inspired by such past programs as Mary Tyler Moore, The Cosby Show, and Roseanne, to create a family sitcom with a positive outlook. In this, she has definitely succeeded.”

    The PTC recommends that parents exercise caution with other ABC shows, “Forever,” “Manhattan Love Story,” and “Selfie.”

        Yes Nick, thanks to the founders of our country, we ALL have the right to free speech. The colonists took on the British empire for injustices that were made. Since that time, free speech has helped make many progressive and amazing changes in our country, even against powerful interests. In today’s world, the PTC has a unique technological structure to monitor television shows daily to see the content that the broadcast networks push out. Because the ratings of many TV shows are so off, the PTC uses “freedom of speech” to give parents a heads up on the content of these shows. The parents always make the final decisions on what their children view on TV.
