Watchdog group delivers TV list

QUICK

October 20, 2005|Associated Press

Four Fox network programs, led by the comedies "The War at Home," "Family Guy" and "American Dad," topped a parents group's annual listing of the worst prime-time shows for family viewing.

The Parents Television Council rated two aspirational reality shows, ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and NBC's new "Three Wishes," as best for family viewing.

"Families should not be deceived," said the group's president, L. Brent Bozell. "The top three worst shows all contain crude and raunchy dialogue with sex-themed jokes and foul language."

A Fox spokesman said the network never comments on reports by the Parents Television Council.

Television's two most popular programs, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "Desperate Housewives," were also cited as bad for family viewing.
