I’ve found that in the past few days I don’t watch a lot of tv that my kids don’t watch. Cameron and I miss some of the shows the rest of America watches because our kids are usually in the room. That leaves us out of the “Desperate Housewives” and “The O.C.” viewing numbers.
I started to figure most people wouldn’t care to read about family friendly tv and have tried to blog on TV-Daddy about other shows. Tonight, the publisher and editor of Media Village told me to stop and just concentrate on family friendly tv.
There’s not much of that out there anymore unless you count TV Land and HGTV. It’s funny how times have changed. When I was a kid and cable came around, the thinking was that people who got cable wanted to watch shows the networks couldn’t put on the air. Nowadays, if you want to watch shows your whole family can watch, you depend on cable or video rentals.
Tonight, we rented “To Kill a Mockingbird” which my kids had never seen.
It was one of the best “tv nights” we’ve ever had.
