TV Watch announces campaign to prepare parents for season premieres

CHARLESTON, S.C. (TAB) — TV Watch, the broad-based coalition started in 2005 that opposes government control of TV programming, is launching “Premiere Week Preparedness,” an educational campaign “to help parents prepare as dozens of new shows hit the airwaves.” A TV Watch press release says the campaign includes a public service announcement that “reminds parents that now is the time to take a few minutes to review the content ratings and adjust the parental controls in their homes.” TV Watch also created resources for parents and others to use as tools to understand the rating systems. Throughout the campaign, TV Watch is encouraging people to tweet information about the resources using #PremierePreparedness.

TV Watch encourages parents to:

  1. Learn more about new programming by going to www.tvguide.com/special/fall-preview/calendar.aspx to view a list of the season’s new shows.
  2. Review ratings of shows by visiting www.televisionwatch.org/HelpForParents/TVRatings.html.
  3. Utilize parental controls.
