Grrr! Commercials

With respect to Mike Straka....
Grrr! Football Commercials
FoxNews talks about racy commercials.

My wife and I love to watch college and pro football. Sometimes our boys will watch with us. However, especially with pro, the commercials have become horrible. Lately I've seen Victoria Secrets ads, ads for upcoming adult comedies, and advertisements for male prescription drugs. On one particular ad for a sitcom, one of the characters mentions, "homosexual". This is not appropriate for a child.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick of it. Sure, advertisers have a right to broadcast their products. BUT, they should also be aware of their viewing audience and be held responsible for displaying such garbage.

Thank goodness for the Mute button on the remote.

I'm embarrassed to watch my own network with my grandparents, for the amount of sex content we report, let alone primetime's pervasive use of sex during the so-called Family Hour.
