Pro-family groups vow to contact advertisers behind controversial show

Pro-family groups say they are continuing the effort to get the controversial cable TV show "Sex Box" off the air.  

The program made its debut amid bad reviews and low ratings on Friday, February 27 on We tv, a cable channel geared toward women.

The program features couples getting intimate inside a soundproof, obscured room – or box – while a studio audience waits outside. After emerging from the room - in silk pajamas - they discuss their feelings with so-called experts.

Monica Cole, executive director of the One Million Moms ministry, says her organization along with the Parents Television Council and National Center on Sexual Exploitation sent signed petitions to WE tv executives, asking them to end the show.

Cole, Monica"Over 40,000 concerned Americans and parents do not want this show to air…" says Cole, referring to the petition's signatures.

Because WE tv is included in some cable packages, Cole explains, that means people who oppose airing "Sex Box" are "underwriting" the program via their cable bill.  

The first episode aired to lukewarm responses - a Washington Post TV critic suggested putting the "Box" on a container ship and putting it out to sea.

The show failed to crack Nielsen's top 100 shows on February 27, getting beat out by "Spongebob" and "Amazing World of Gumball" among others.  

Cole says the pro-family organizations are not giving up their protest.

"The next plan is to contact advertisers because the sponsors are who financially support and foots the bill for these programs," she tells OneNewsNow.
