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.
