USA Today, obviously poking about on a slow news day, discovers TV shows that are (once again) overtly pushing sex on television:
ABC programming chief Steve McPherson says he has faced no pressure to edge up content but acknowledges late prime-time slots offer opportunities. "If you can get a loud broadcast-acceptable 10 p.m. show, it's a time to take chances," McPherson says. Moreover, broadcast executives acknowledge that premium-channel and basic-cable-channel rivals are altering the TV landscape.
"We don't want to be out of touch with the way society is going," says NBC's Angela Bromstad. "At the same time, you have to be careful what you put on air."
Me Again: But could this be why overall TV audiences are down? What are the indicators where “society is going”? How do they decide that--using other media desperately trying to retain an audience by pushing sex?
It's time for Christian artists to offer clear alternatives through drama, graphic arts, writing, and music. Create it, and they will come.
