Primetime Programming Sees Sharp Rise in Nudity

Ad Feedback

The amount of implied nudity in television primetime is on the rise, according to the Parents Television Council.

PTC researchers found 76 cases of blurred nudity last season, a sharp increase from the previous primetime season when there were only 15 such instances.  

In each case, the nudity was hidden by blurring or strategically placed objects.

"It's a lot more suggestive than we've seen in the past," PTC spokeswoman Melissa Henson said.

Henson shared more about the disturbing new trend on the CBN News Channel's Morning News, Aug. 22.

The watchdog group said it plans to bring the matter to the Federal Communications Commission's attention.

"The networks have made it abundantly clear they have no intention of respecting either the broadcast licenses they've been granted or the public in whose interest they are licensed to serve," the group said in a press release.

"Therefore the American people, whose values are being assaulted on a nightly basis, must insist that the Federal Communications Commission vigorously enforce broadcast decency laws, as mandated by the Congress and affirmed by the Supreme Court," they said.

Despite the report, there are some television shows that are safe for the whole family.
