Foul Language On TV is Up

The use of “foul language” on American TV is up dramatically in the past five years, says a new study by the Parents Television Council. “During the so-called ‘family hour,’ from 8-9 p.m., foul language increased by 94.8 percent between 1998 and 2002, the study found. It rose by 109 percent during the 9 p.m. hour in the same period.”
