• Family-Friendly Shows to Look Out For

    Family Watching TVA new crop of family-friendly shows will soon be hitting TV screens.

    Just because a show is animated, that doesn’t make it family-friendly. We learned that from shows like Family Guy and Archer. And just
    because a child is a character in the show,  doesn’t make it appropriate for children either, as we learned from Two and a Half Men.

    Nothing is more annoying than watching TV as a family, when suddenly something graphic appears and you rush to cover your children’s eyes. If you’re wondering what shows are out there that you can comfortably watch with your family, look no further. Below is a list of new and upcoming 2015 family-friendly shows to look out for.

      Sad there is not more to choose from. If this is the best there is this year someone is not doing much to entertain the family. No wonder Netflix is doing so well.

      Thank you for doing what you are doing to clean up the filth on TV! I will continue to support you in your great work. The Hallmark channel is one of the best and cleanest family-friendly channels and I watch it often.

      Thank you for encouraging the Inspiration Channel. Our family watches it a lot and really enjoy the family friendly and entertaining programming.
      Direct TV offers INSP in their Family Package but won’t include Hallmark channels in that package; we have to pay extra for those. I have complained about this but so far nothing has changed to include Hallmark in the family plan. Perhaps other PTC DTV members can also ask for Hallmark in their Family Package. Hope so!
