Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

There’s an article in Salon from yesterday about a new family package soon to be offered by cable providers. So much for the kick ass ala carte plan. Whatever. The only reason I’m writing about it is this:

For instance, Isett said cable providers' family plans should not include channels like ABC Family, which shows PG-13 movies…
Ha! ABC Family is too racy for these people? Have you ever watched ABC Family? Me neither. OK, bad example. But if I did, I’m sure it would be pukingly wholesome entertainment, wouldn’t it? I imagine some old-school Mary-Kate and Ashley stuff (you know, before the anorexia and rehab), a little Rodgers and Hammerstein action, a sprinkle of after-school special programming. PG-13? Might there be a woman in a skirt that falls above her knee!! Heaven forfend!!

I envision a channel that just plays Davey and Goliath over and over again as being the only thing these folks can stomach.
