ABC Family... Yeah Right
If you've ever flipped through the channels I'm sure you've come across ABC Family, the network famous for 'Full House' and 'America's Funniest Videos' re-runs. ABC Family advertises the fact that the network is 'television for today's families.'
"ABC Family is television for today's families -- connected by birth or by choice, diverse and multicultural, mirroring our changing attitudes and lifestyles. The movies, hits, holidays and originals of ABC Family feature reliable characters and coming-of-age stories, reflected with heart in the comedy and drama of the experiences of today's families."
I've come across a show every now and then on ABC Family that made me question how 'family oriented' the network really is, but this last Saturday night's ABC Family Movie really took the cake.
Get this... ABC Family was showing that all-time favorite family movie 'Risky Business.'
Yes, the same 'Risky Business' with Tom Cruise, Rebecca De Mornay, and lots and lots of sex, drugs, and more sex.
ABC Family... what a joke.

That's part of that "changing attitudes" portion of their mission statement.4:39 PM
I was shocked by some of the ABC Family fare myself on occasion lately so I've been more vigilant about making sure the remote doesn't land there when Mom's not in the room.
My oldest loves Funniest Home Videos for some reason so she HAS been known to be watching that channel.
So what's the problem? Families can do drugs and have sex, too!7:09 PM
