Is there any one tv show that you do not allow in your house?

What about growing up, was there anything on TV that your parents didn't let you watch?

There isn't one that isn't allowed in the house because DH can watch whatever he wants to, but there are some we don't allow the kids to watch like Southpark and the Simpson's and such.

Family guy is my biggest NO FREAKIN WAY! Dh and I have watched it but my boys NO, its way to explicit for them. they are 11 & 9 and their friends are allowed to watch it but I do not want to knowingly expose my kids to any more then they already are around friends.

My parents (mom & stepdad) didn't restrict us from anything on tv as kids. But, back then, we only had something like 6 or 7 channels, anyway--using the 'rabbit ears', we had the 4 local channels, PBS and some other channel--can't recall exactly, but I think it was UPN (?).
My tv had knobs (VHF and UHF), was fuzzy as all hell anyhow.
I rarely watched tv, I was the quiet 'bookworm', that always had my music playing on the radio, 24/7.

Now, with my kids, the only shows that I 'restrict', or allow VERY LITTLE of, are the annoying sing-song type shows. The 'Disney Jr' and some of the 'Nick Jr' shows are not 'welcome' in our house. I can handle a couple of the 'Nick Jr' shows. I actually like "Wonder Pets" and I can tolerate "Umizoomi" and a couple other shows, but those kinds of shows are on for a maximum of about two shows per day. Otherwise, I have The Weather Channel on for background music, while the kids are busy playing or are napping, and I'm doing housework.
I tend to have educational tv shows on for most of the day...that is, when the tv is actually on.
