As a parent and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I strongly encourage Extra (Wrigley/Mars, Inc.) to drop all plans of financially supporting the inappropriate TV Land program "Younger" that airs on Tuesday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.

I am appalled that your company is sponsoring a show that displays casual sex as normal and acceptable behavior and showcases vulgar and vile behavior in a positive light. TV Land's "Younger" is attempting to desensitize our society.

Recently the program has glamorized public nudity, graphic bedroom scenes, and excessive alcohol consumption.

While your company is a household name, I do not agree with your financial backing of this program. This show is extremely offensive and sexually charged.

As a consumer, I am asking Extra (Wrigley/Mars, Inc.) to please pull ads immediately and to support family friendly programming instead. My decision to support your company depends on it.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.

It is almost impossible to describe the depth of depravity found in the new TV Land sitcom, "Younger." It airs on Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT. This new program is horrendous. "Younger" is the new version of "Desperate Housewives" or "Sex in the City," which doesn't come as a surprise since it is written, produced, and directed by Darren Star ("Sex and the City").

TV Land network describes the show in these words: "Younger" follows 40-year-old Liza, a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find out it's nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a 20-something guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26 not only to land her dream job but also to date a much younger guy.

Every scene is filled with s*xual innuendos, implications, or encounters. It is impossible to list them all, so here are a few scenes from this TV-14 rated show:

  • Pixelated n*dity
  • Woman is completely topl*ss during lunch at outdoor café
  • "Topl*ss Tuesday" = a slogan for women’s empowerment
  • Gives vag*na pep talks
  • Graphic bedroom scenes
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • H*mos*xual attraction
  • Main character helps friend remove feminine product stuck inside her

This comedy is anything but funny!
