Parent's Television Council announces worst TV sponsors of 2012

"Bad" sponsors sponsored shows with sexual content, foul language & violence like Smash or America's Next Top Model.

“Good” companies sponsored shows with positive, family-friendly themes like Minute to Win It.

Our list of the best and worst TV advertisers is meant to serve as a guide to holiday shoppers who support family-friendly advertisers, knowing the impact those companies have on today’s TV programming and, by extension, on our entertainment media culture,” said PTC president Tim Winter.

Just in time for the official start to holiday season, the Parents Television Council® released its annual list of the “Top Ten Best and Worst Advertisers” for the 2011-2012 television season.
