Could it be that those shows were canceled not because of the Parents' Television Council, but because they were unprofitable due to poor ratings? Is the PTC going to claim victory for the cancellation of Manimal next?

Exactly!

However, there is A LOT of Discontent from people over what is being shown these days, and more and more people are expressing their feelings by "Voting with their Feet", in other words by "Cutting the Cord' and seeking their Entertainment needs from "Somewhere Else".

I honestly don't understand what all the hype was about with this show. Women dressed in leotards serving drinks? So scandalous. There was no nudity, no raunchy sex scenes, not even raunchy dialogue. There are many more shows much more scandalous than this one. Two and a Half Men for example.

The second coming of Leave it to Beaver? Sorry, but you're delusional if you think people have any interest in watching a show like Leave it to Beaver in the year 2011. And really, "let them work at McDonald's"? No no, you're totally correct... a modern day Leave it to Beaver will be this country's economic savior! Wish I would have thought of that myself!

Yeah, I'm sure the PTC is what did it. It had nothing to do with a lack of viewership! Don't you miss the days when a TV husband and wife had twin beds? That's what's missing today! Those were the days!

Don't knock it! The Hayes Code and the Television Code may not have been perfect, but they WORKED! Since you couldn't have Graphic Sex and Violence, producers concentrated on other things, and the result was QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT, not the Garbage we have now!

Do you really think it had anything to do with the PTC? I highly doubt it. First of all, the show was hardly scandalous. It wasn't even as suggestive as some other primetime shows. It's a perfect example of them getting freaked out about nothing.

It just didn't capture an audience - period dramas have a hard time in general, it didn't get good reviews, and it had tough competition on a network that is struggling big time. THOSE are the reasons, not the stupid PTC.

You brag constantly around this board about how you gave up cable all those years ago and only watch your DVD's, so how would you even know if what's on is good? Stop trashing on what everyone else likes just because you're stuck in the past.

Now, The Simpsons (currently in season 23) is in danger of cancellation after this season because of high costs and the six voice actors being faced with a significant pay cut.

Eh, 23 seasons is plenty. Plus I read an article that said the show may be worth more cancelled than continuing to air.

In the end, I think the voice actors will realize they are greedy and take a pay cut - or risk losing it all. Damn, I wish I was paid $400,000 an episode to play an animated voice!

With all the technology today, couldn't they have nobodies voice the characters and change them to sound similar to the current castmembers?

I don't know, just throwing random ideas out there!

I basically agree.And I'm no prude.If they still had the Hayes code etc. alot of junk that has ruined tv would not be on the air.Like Jerry Springer type shows being one example of many.Most modern tv caters to the lowest common denominator of viewer,whether it's the so-called 'news' stations,talk shows,regular tv shows etc.Not to mention commercials that have become so obnoxious.--Now it might not improve the quality of tv shows much--because in my opinion,for the most part they no longer have the talent to make good programs,but it would keep some of the garbage off the air.

I also agree with that. Like I mentioned in another thread,so they may have shown some women in bunny suits,I don't really see the big deal.Of course I did not watch the show so I may be off base,but when you compare it to the other types of shows on television today(like the shows I mentioned in my post above),that show seemed almost harmless.
