PTC Angry Over NBC’s ‘Playboy Club’

Obviously the Parents Television Council doesn’t read the articles. The advocacy group is condemning NBC for its upcoming drama “The Playboy Club,” putting pressure on local stations across the country to refuse its airing. The series, set in 1960s Chicago, stars Eddie Cibrian as Nick, a candidate for district attorney who frequents the titular establishment and soon finds his life entangled with that of Playboy bunny Maureen (played by Amber Heard.) Citing statistics that 200,000 Americans are “porn addicts,” and 56 percent of divorce cases can be blamed not on lack of love but on “one person” having "obsessive interest" in pornography, the PTC blames Playboy, and NBC for supporting it, for the demise of the American family/Jack Wineraub, The Wrap.

Question: Do you have concerns re: network TV offering something as racy as "The Playboy Club"?
