UPDATE! Keep up the great work! One Million Moms contacted Wrigley/Mars Inc. and asked that they pull their ads (Temptations, Nutro, Uncle Ben’s, Starburst, and Extra), and the company is no longer supporting "Teachers." Their ads were not present during the last episode.
No further action is needed, but you can keep their decision in mind while shopping.
You are making a HUGE difference!
Thank you (and Wrigley/Mars Inc.) for helping us fight indecency!
It is almost impossible to describe the depth of depravity found in the TV Land sitcom "Teachers." Every scene is filled with sexual innuendos, implications, or graphic encounters.
TV Land continues to air the vile program "Teachers" on Tuesday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT with a TV-14 LS rating, but the previews air much earlier in the evening when children are likely watching TV. The vulgar advertisements for "Teachers" are airing during shows such as the "Andy Griffith Show" and other family-friendly programs. The previews alone are disgusting, and that is extremely disturbing since it involves a young cast. If the promos are this bad, then obviously the show is not suitable for TV.
Teaching is an honorable profession, but oftentimes a thankless job. 1MM wants to support and encourage educators, not belittle, mock, or bring them down as TV Land is doing.
TV Land is encouraging drug use, crude dialogue, offensive gestures at school, teachers being cruel to young children, and questioning authority. "Teachers" is irresponsible and an insult to women and teachers.
Please use the information we have provided to contact Wrigley/Mars Inc. and ask that they pull their ads (Temptations, Nutro, Uncle Ben’s, Starburst, and Extra) from "Teachers" immediately.
