children watching TVA media watchdog is doing what it can to ensure that the Super Bowl keeps it clean when it comes to commercials and the halftime show.

As player protests over the national anthem have disappeared and the NFL sees a revival in its TV ratings, One Million Moms is encouraging league Commissioner Roger Goodell to make sure the big game on February 3rd is suitable for all ages watching on TV.

"We want to hold the NFL accountable from start to finish," says One Million Moms Director Monica Cole. "From the beginning of the game to the very end, we just want all of it to be family-friendly."

Cole, MonicaIn past years, Cole's organization has reached out to companies when their Super Bowl commercials were "extremely inappropriate or over the line."

"When a certain commercial does cross the line, we do reach out to the company and complain, but the damage is already done because the children have already seen it and have been exposed to it," she laments. "So this year, One Million Moms wanted to be proactive in reaching out and hoping that the NFL and the commissioner will not even approve those types of ads."

Even though the halftime shows and the commercials have been more family-friendly in recent years, Cole adds that there is always room for improvement.
