TV Land's 'Teachers' continues to cross the line

TV LandA media watchdog for parents is keeping an eye on an irreverent sitcom that's in its second season on the cable network TV Land.

The show Teachers, which airs on Tuesday nights, has drawn the attention of One Million Moms since it hit the airwaves. The series, according to the group, is "irresponsible and an insult" to women and to teachers – and by airing the program, says 1MM, TV Land is encouraging drug use, crude dialogue, offensive gestures at school, and questioning of authority.

1MM director Monica Cole says her organization has had success in contacting sponsors to encourage them not to advertise on the program that she says fills every scene with innuendos, implications, or graphic encounters of a sexual nature.

"Many sponsors did pull their support, not only because of the inappropriate content on what was once a family-friendly network, but also because [the] children who are cast in this particular program, Teachers, are being exposed to inappropriate content because they are part of the cast," she explains.

Teachers (TV Land)"It is almost impossible to describe the depth of depravity [on Teachers]," the group's website states.

Cole tells OneNewsNow there are no signs that the second season will be cleaner than the first season's awful content. "The past season was just absolutely disgusting – and the mockery and ridicule of teachers in the educational field was just completely crossing the line," she laments.

Cole says her group "wants to support and encourage educators – not belittle, mock, or bring them down, as TV Land is doing."
