ABC slammed for exposing children to steamy Scandal bedroom scene < 26 seconds after Charlie Brown



The Parents Television Council president Tim Winter said in a statement:

"Shame on ABC for putting a peep show next to a playground. In less than 26 seconds we were taken from the Peanuts pumpkin patch to a steamy Scandal sex scene. Twenty-six seconds, boom. Unless parents had the remote control in their hand, thumb on the button and aimed directly at the TV screen, they didn’t have a chance. Such a transition is grossly irresponsible by the network and entirely unfair for parents. ABC owes families an apology."

"The juxtaposition of a reliably classic family-friendly children’s cartoon special like the Great Pumpkin –a huge family draw every year for decades – with such a graphic bedroom scene is unjustifiable."
