Last week, the Parents Television Council (PTC) called for a boycott of $#*! My Dad Says, but the star of the show, William Shatner, thinks that too much is being made of the bleeped out profanity.
PTC President Tim Winter is upset over the profanity, even though the profanity is not even being used in the title of the show, being replaced by $#*! instead. “Parents really do care about profanity when their kids are watching TV,” said Winter. “All parents? No, but something like eighty or ninety percent of parents. Putting an expletive in the title of a show is crossing new territory, and we can’t allow that to happen on our watch.”
