MTV Skins Losing Viewers

MTV is known for its raunchy programming. And it’s living up to its reputation with a controversial teen drama called Skins. The Parents Television Council wants the show investigated for being child pornography. The program is tanking in viewership and advertisers are avoiding the program like the plague. But MTV is counting on the controversy to boost its edgy brand regardless of the cost to the network. Bloggers say the program isn’t resonating with teens, and there’s absolutely no buzz on the Internet. Teens who are talking about the drama series seem to be reinforcing this perception. Many say the constant partying, sex and drug use is not realistic to the average teen’s life. But this is a good reminder to parents to watch what your kids see on TV.
