Black Friday Christmas shopping frenzyWith the Christmas shopping season in high gear, the Parents Television Council has released its annual Best and Worst TV Advertisers list.  

PTC spokeswoman Melissa Henson says Proctor & Gamble, Walmart, Smuckers, Hershey's, and Coca-Cola are among the companies producing ads with positive content and avoiding controversial TV programs.

"They're not perfect --- no company is--- so occasionally they make mistakes," she observes. "But I think that those companies have also demonstrated that they will recognize when they've made a mistake and they will quickly correct course."

Henson says a newcomer to the Worst list is Geico, the insurer who made geckos famous but disappointed PTC by advertising on programs that are not family-friendly viewing.  

Henson notes that in years past McDonald's has been on the Worst list but the fast food chain has trended in a more positive direction. So this year PTC has welcomed McDonald's to its Best list.
