    Default Inappropriate ads during 6:30pm timeslot tv shows!

    Is anyone else worried about the kind of advertising during family shows?? I watch Mythbusters regularly with my 8 yr old son, we love the show but recently the advertising during it have been extremely inappropriate for the timeslot especially since a lot of the viewers would be younger. Two of the ads were for other shows on that station, Masters of Sex and Lip Service. In my opinion 6:30pm is WAY too early to be showing explicit ads of this nature!! Am I just overreacting or is this a legitimate gripe?! I have contacted the station about my concerns but I doubt very much whether they'l do anything.

    Contact the 'codes of practise' place. There are ads for it all the time. If you think something is inappropriate they have to review it.

    I agree, some of the ads are inappropriate for the time slots!!
