MTV Cuts Controversial 'Skins' Show

Ad Feedback

After just one season, MTV says it will cancel the controversial teen drama "Skins" due to low ratings.

Some felt the racy series bordered on child pornography.

Although a hit on British television, MTV executives said "Skins" didn't connect with Americans.

The show debuted to an audience of more than 3 million people but numbers quickly fell to a little over 1 million.

"Skins" frequently depicted out of control teenagers using drugs and engaging in sexual activity.

A number of sponsors pulled their ads, and the Parents Television Council called for the show to be investigated.

CBN News spoke with Matt Philbin of the Media Research Council about the Skins cancellation.  Click play for his comments.
