Parents group wants to stop 'Gossip Girl' threesome

4

November

Tbd-gossipgirl110509 That super-secret threesome episode of Gossip Girl has caught the eye of a parents group, who have complained to CW affiliates that Monday's episode should be yanked from the air so their precious kids don't have to be exposed to the realities of primetime television competing with basic cable.

The Parents Television Council president Tim Winter says in a letter obtained by Entertainment Weekly that stations will be “complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers should engage in behaviors heretofore associated primarily with adult films" if they show the episode.

Furthermore, the group threatens that "the affiliate, not the CW network, that will bear the financial burden of an FCC fine should any of the content of the November 9th episode be found to violate broadcast decency laws." Of course, there's no mention fo the fact that lawyers and censors probably have vetted the thing eight ways from Tuesday already, but it sounds good, right?

Hey Tim, while you're decrying TV shows targeted at teens for promoting "high-risk sexual behaviors," we'd like to remind you there are usually buttons to allow you to either change the channel or turn off the damn set and talk to your kids instead of letting the glowing picture box raise them.
