WARNING: MTV's 'I Just Want My Pants Back' Causes Stir with Parents Television Council

A conservative media watchdog group is going after MTV for airing a television program with inappropriate content that targets children as young as 12.

Parents Television Council accuses the cable channel of taking HBO-style content and marketing it to a Nickelodeon-age audience. Dan Isett is director of public policy for the PTC.

"MTV has a new show called 'I Just Want My Pants Back' -- and as you might imagine it's a show that's absolutely replete with both sexual content and sexual dialogue," he says. "And it's one that's been mis-appropriately rated as appropriate for a 14-year-old child -- and MTV is on the record as having targeted a demographic beginning with children as young as 12."
