remote control (closeup)With the fall TV season under way, some television watchdog groups are weighing in on the broadcast networks' shows.

Dr. Christopher Gildemeister of the Parents Television Council evaluated new TV shows presented at the Fall TV Previews at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles. As far as family friendliness is concerned, he explains that most shows are in the middle.

"There isn't a lot of really super good stuff, and there isn't a lot of really super bad stuff," he relays. "There's a lot of things that are sort of in between that might be okay for older viewers. There's not a lot out there for kids, and that, I guess, is a trend that's been going on for a couple of years now."

Monica Cole, director of the American Family Association's One Million Moms, understands that this time of year can be especially busy for parents, but she encourages them to stay on top of their children's viewing habits.

Cole, Monica"Parents do not need to let this fall between the cracks," she insists. "They need to be aware of what their children are watching, because there are too many programs out there that are inappropriate for anyone, especially for children."

Cole's organization will be keeping an eye on the programs during the fall season and urging parents to take action against the shows and advertisers that tear down society.
