"The Mick"One Million Moms is targeting advertisers of a Fox sitcom that's now in its second season.

The Mick airs on Fox at 8:00 pm on Tuesdays. Monica Cole, director of the American Family Association ministry, says the vulgar show features foul-mouthed cast members, and the program's child actors -- as young as seven years old -- are exposed to sexualization and moral corruption.

Cole, Monica"The children that are cast on programs such as The Mick, this is child exploitation at its worst," she contends. "At One Million Moms, we're concerned for the children and also our own children who may stumble across it while viewing television during primetime hours."

Cole tells OneNewsNow some of the show's episodes have also been sacrilegious.

"As a Christian ministry, One Million Moms also finds it extremely offensive that … The Mick ridicules people of faith and mocks Christianity," she laments.

So One Million Moms will continue to target The Mick’s sponsors, as the organization has had success in the past in getting businesses to pull their ads from unwholesome shows.
