Last month's Britney Spears Glee episode earned a show-record 13.3 million viewers and several spots on the Billboard charts. But the response wasn't all positive.
Some reviewers felt it was fluff from a series renowned for great writing on weighty topics (see this week's "Grilled Cheesus"). Others were just plain offended.
The Parents' Television Council deemed the "Britney/Brittany" episode the worst thing on TV that week, a "pandering tribute" to a "toxic teen role model." Ouch!
Some parents were not thrilled with Brittany or Britney.
Part of the PTC's beef was that more children are likely to watch Glee than other series, making the content more objectionable than that of all other programs.
On top of bashing the "skimpy outfits," the group calls the episode an "endorsement of narcotics abuse, public masturbation, and school-sanctioned burlesque."
The PTC also slammed the focus on Britney Spears personally.
