TV rating MA LSVA moms' group that aims to stop the exploitation of children, especially by the entertainment media, is hopeful that changes to fix the TV ratings system are on the way.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently issued a report to Congress that basically echoed the concerns of pro-family groups. The Parents Television Council is encouraged by the report, and Monica Cole, director of OneMillionMoms.com, is thrilled to see attention drawn to the fact that the outdated system is more benefitial to the entertainment industry than it is to families.

"The TV rating system has been controlled and monitored more or less by the entertainment industry. It's older than Google; it's older than the iPhone; it's older than Facebook," Cole points out. "So we find that ... outrageous, that it hasn't changed in over 20 years."

Cole, MonicaThough she recognizes there is still a long road ahead, Cole is glad to see progress.

"We think this is a huge step in the right direction, and OneMillionMoms will continue to work to ensure that improvements are made on the TV ratings system," the group director tells OneNewsNow. "The FCC is attempting to see how they can help parents, and we will just look for a positive change in the TV rating system."

Although when that will happen is anyone's guess.
