  • I love lucy was not allowed to use the word pregnant, The people who were married were not allowed to be shown in bed together. Brady Bunch, Dick Van Dyke shoow etc.. had to be shown in twin beds. Now they can all but be shown having sex.

  • Parents should take more resp. I have better over the years with shows and what I feel my kids can handle and not handle-we have some shows and types of movies they are banned on seeing until much older and others not a big deal-in point the whole adam lambert thing-it was here (cafemom) that my oldest watched it, since all of my kids have an 8pm bed time.

  • Parents should take more responsibility, and monitor what their kids watch. No one else should have any say, ahem FCC.

  • I don't believe in censoring TV. They have all sorts of things now that parents can buy to block what their kids watch. It is the parents responsiblity to know what their kids are watching.

  •    This is such a ridicules question and the answer is nothing but COMMON SENSE!! The NATIONAL NEWS had hours of conversation about Adam Lambert!  He said " I'm not a Babysitter, I'm a performer" And he's RIGHT. Do parents want to take NO responsibility? The American Music Awards should NEVER be watched by a child if parents are on the fence about it. come on now, get real!

  • Of course we should keep an eye on what our children watch these days.
    For petes sake, what are people thinking these days? In the past few years
    I have seen more smut and gore on TV than ever. I'm all for freedom of speech
    and such but how did it ever come to this? We never saw things we can see today
    in my younger days(and they were much better days) Much of it is disgusting.
    Personally, Adam Lambert never should have won that stupid show and if that is
    the kind of performance people want to see itjust proves my point.
    You are one sick puppy if you would actually turn the TV on to purposely see that smut.
