TV Ratings for Busy Parents
What are those kids watching, anyway?
Not Everything on TV Gets Rated for Content. The first thing to know about TV Ratings is that not everything gets a Parental Guideline classification. For reasons that are generally unexplained (or which are considered obvious) television sports, news broadcasts, and commercials are exempt from this system. This means your nightly news, sporting events like The Super Bowl, and racy commercials for GoDaddy.com are not rated, even though they may contain content you would find unsuitable for your children. You’ll have to gauge the appropriateness of this kind of TV content without guidance from your television industry.
