Sens, blast fall season for sex glut

The fall TV season is just getting under way, but already two lawmakers are complaining about excessive levels of sex on the new primetime lineup.

Sens. Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.) and Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) took turns lambasting the new programming.

Lieberman criticized CBS’s “Bless This House” for dialogue in which a character makes reference to her daughter’s “little hooters.” He noted the program airs at 8 p.m. – “during what we once thought of as the traditional family viewing hour.”

Conrad labeled the new season a “tragedy” that “demonstrates so much disregard for the wishes of American families and the clear majority of the House and Senate.”

Lieberman and Conrad are prime backers of the “V-chip” amendment that was added to the Senate telecommunications reform bill allowing parents to block out violent and other offensive programming.
