PTC: PG-Rated TV Shows Dropped In 2011-14

On the heels of the highly-watched, family-friendly special broadcast of NBC’s The Wiz Live, the Parents Television Council is renewing its call for broadcasters to program for families throughout the year and not only during the holidays. According to new PTC data, there were 11.5 fewer hours of TV-PG primetime broadcast programming during a two-week study period in 2014 than in 2011, representing an almost 20% decrease.
