Family Guy got put on that one list of family-unfriendly TV shows. I heard some guy talking about it on the radio, and he was talking about how he liked the show and it's the responsibility of parents to be smart enough to not let kids watch it even if they want to, etc., etc. Nice to see he also saw the South Park movie.
But it was bugging the crap out of me because he kept calling the show The Family Guy. I don't even like the show, but I know what it's called. This is supposed to be the guy's favorite show and he doesn't even know the right name of it?
At USC, the extraneous "the" was also there in an email about one of the show's writers speaking on campus last week.
Now I just saw the same thing in this Salon column referencing the list. Aha! Here's the problem. The PTC got the title wrong in its actual list, so everyone writing about it takes their word for it.
That is all. The lesson is, for correct TV show titles, don't take the word of people whose job is to hate TV.
