"Good Girls" TV showA media watchdog is holding companies accountable for sponsoring a new show that is sending the wrong message about motherhood. 

NBC's new comedy-drama "Good Girls" centers around three struggling moms who commit a grocery store robbery in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. 

Monica Cole, director of One Million Moms, a ministry of the American Family Association, says the show should not be on primetime broadcast television due to "vile" content she refuses to describe.

"Not only is there violence, and sexual innuendos and encounters, there is the foul language," she says. "It's pretty much all compiled in this show."

"Good Girls" premiered in February to mixed reviews from critics who were sympathetic to the "struggling moms" plot but weren't otherwise impressed.

According to the TV-14 ratings, the show is appropriate for most teenagers but Cole says it's not only inappropriate for teenagers but for everyone.

One Million Moms is contacting Outback Steakhouse and other advertisers of "Good Girls," urging them not to be financially associated with this program's unsuitable content.
