PTC Really, Really Doesn't Like Skins

by at . Comments

The Parents Television Council is taking its anti-Skins crusade to a new level this week, urging members to contact their state attorneys general about it.

Specifically, the PTC alleges that the MTV show and the satellite providers that air it may be in violation of child pornography laws. Yes, we're serious.

The news comes as more and more advertisers distance themselves from the show and the third episode garnered only 1.5 million viewers Monday.

SKINS IN DEEP: The PTC may be the last of its issues. Ratings suck.

But an MTV spokesperson says all 10 episodes of the show will air this season, and despite rumors to the contrary, it will not cancel the controversial show.

The show's creator also defended it, telling critics that the truth hurts.

His claims that Skins is an honest, important look at teen life haven't exactly deterred efforts from some groups, namely the PTC, to bring about its end.

“It is unfortunate that we have reached the point of having to call for a criminal investigation into the [show's] production,” said PTC President Tim Winter.

“As if the blatant teen drug and alcohol abuse on Skins isn’t enough, the fact that MTV allegedly considered whether its program might have violated child pornography laws - and then went ahead and aired it anyway - is beyond repulsive.”

If all you've heard about this show is that people hate it and that it's SO risque, check out these Skins reviews to read what it's actually about.


it must suck to be american


honestly i love this show! really, u guys should give it a chance and no creeps dont watch this it doesnt show thatt much and besides the actors agreed to air these and star in them so its not.


HAHAHHAHA You sad little fucks. Guess what, this is what you're kids are doing. And this show is helping them through the jungle of love, sex, alcohol, drugs and drama wich is a normal teens life! If anything, it helps them deal with it, and get them thru it safe and sound. Fuck off americans, you're a bunch of tossers.


Oh get this shit off the tv already!!
Under age orgie fest? NO THANKS!!


@Team Me
i agree with you this show IS crap....and obiously the PTC doesnt like this show who would....

Team me

I hope this show gets shut down.
Maybe a handful of troubled teens act like this, but most teenagers don't. This show is stupid and disgusting and probably an insult to many teenagers. When I first saw previews for the show, I thought, surely these are college students and not high schoolers. I seriously thought I might watch the show. But, like the PTC says, it's child pornography. I wonder how many perverts sit around in their tighty whiteys and watch this crap?
