A media watchdog is scolding cable network TBS for a sitcom the lowers the bar for indecency on TV.
"The Detour," which airs on Tuesday nights, follows the Parker family on a trip from New York to Florida for a family vacation.
Monica Cole of One Million Moms calls it an "extremely graphic and vulgar program."
"It's just so graphic and filthy," she complains. "I can't even go into details of what the show consists of - the content in some of the scenes because it's that bad."
One Million Moms and its grassroots supporters routinely lobby advertisers to pull their money from crude, anti-family TV shows, getting mixed results in their ongoing efforts. Restaurant Brands International, which owns Burger King and Popeyes, is being asked by One Million Moms to yank its advertising dollars from "The Detour."
Cole acknowledges that "Just change the channel" is a common argument made by some. But the crude behavior would likely be far worse, she says, if there was never pushback on pushing boundaries.
