Do you watch Lost Girl? Do you think that TV in general is getting a bit raunchy?

I like to watch Lost Girl, Being Human and Glee... But I have noticed that TV in general has begin to get a bit raunchy. I am resorting to just watch American Pickers... LOL

What do you think? Is TV a bit raunchy?

  • Did you notice that TV shows have RATINGS?
    Lost Girl is rated TV-MA.
    Same as the soft core porn on Cinemax.
    Change the channel if you don't like it.

  • Never heard of it before. PGA has a very valid point.

  • I do not have kids in the house any more. So It does not bother me.

  • They have a handy dandy rating system in place for that reason

  • Sci-fi channel (yes, I know they changed the spelling but it's ignorant) ... something about fairies, succubi and things like that? Heard of but never watched it.

    My favorite shows include Sons of Anarchy, Californication, Shameless, Dexter, True Blood, The Walking Dead, Spartacus ... you get the idea. I like the bloody, violent shows with lots of adult language and sexual situations.

  • I stick mostly to History, Discovery, and channels like that because at least there, the violence has some educational value. To each her own.

  • I agree. It is very hard as a mom to decipher what is ok and what isn't regardless of the rating. I watch the shows first and decide that way. For me, I don't care. Dexter and True Blood are my favs. But, for the kids, I watch it first. Sometimes, I have to watch a few episodes to really get the gist of the show. I have often gotten hooked on them, too. LOL

  • Yes tv is getting raunchy but I agree there are ratings for a reason.
