Do you care who advertises where?
Should we judge companies by, well, the company they keep?
The Parents Television Council thinks we should. The PTC has issued its annual list of companies that advertise the most on TV shows it deems family-unfriendly and those that place ads on more family-appropriate programs. The organization notes that advertising keeps TV shows afloat, and companies that choose to underwrite shows that expose kids and teens to graphic sex and violence should be held accountable. It wants consumers to pay attention and shop accordingly.
Yum! Brands, which owns KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, topped this year's bad-guy list, while General Mills led the list of advertisers that support wholesome programming. The PTC praised Payless for moving from the top of 2007's "worst" list to number 6 on this year's "best" list.
