You may recall that a while back it was announced that the Twitter account @ShitMyDadSays was going to be the first account to get it’s own TV show. The account was licensed by CBS and stars William Shatner as the lovable but foul mouthed father.
The series is drawing quite a bit of attention from The Parents Television Council which is peeved off at the title of the show, although CBS has promised that the word will be bleeped out.
PTC President Tim Winter told Mashable in an email statement:
“CBS intentionally chose to insert an expletive into the actual name of a show, and, despite its claim that the word will be bleeped, it is just CBS’ latest demonstration of its contempt for families and the public.”
PTC will continue their campaign against free bleeped out speech, as the show nears it’s first air date, the negative attention should help the show draw a ton of interest from possible viewers.
Will you be watching ShitMyDadSays (we don’t bleep…sorry PTC)? Let us know your thoughts on the sitcom, I personally think it looks hilarious.
Here’s some clips of the pilot provided by CNN:
