Now you know why I don't have a TV.

"Why are these women being slipped in under the radar on a kids' programming awards show?"

Because the group has been supported by the Kids' Choice Awards voters? I find it a lot more disturbing that Chris Brown wasn't removed from an awards. Frankly, I'd rather have my kids looking up to burlesque performers than someone who (according to the evidence) violently beats up women. But, Nickelodean didn't remove him precisely because the Kids' Choice Awards is supposed to reflect the Kid's choices. Not saying you're wrong, but there may be another explanation for their presence.

Whoops, sorry. I really shouldn't be trying to read this early in the morning.

"Awards, NOWHERE does it mention anything to do with the Dolls' nomination or their two performances. Not a word. For these very well-promoted performers, this is more than a little odd."


i very much dislike the pussycat dolls, but i LOVE sesame street. so.


"I find it a lot more disturbing that Chris Brown wasn't removed from an awards. "

I thought he was...


Our grandson, age 7, was with us for the weekend and said that the award show was on and that he wanted to watch. I have never been a fan of Nickelodeon. But, we decided to watch it together:) To say the least, I was shocked when the Pussy Cat Dolls came out on stage! Needless to say, we didn't watch the rest of the show. It breaks my heart to see childhood innocence stolen. I am also fed up with the "burping" and "passing gas" that goes on in so many of the PG movies. It was such a joy to be able to sit through Wall-e without any of the usual PG crass behavior. One of the reasons I dislike much of the Nickelodeon stuff is because when it comes to kids...ANYTHING GOES!


Dr. Ruth has also appeared on the PBS show "Between the Lions" which otherwise I love. Sesame St. has had other questionable "stars" as does a Mott's Apple Juice ad recently... "signs of the times" are everywhere...


I'm sorry to say the Kids' Choice Awards show has been like this since I can remember. There hasn't been one show that hasn't featured a group, film, or series that seemed incredibly inappropriate for kids.


Alas, I have given up on television altogether. We now use ours to watch movies, which may not always promote the strongest of values, but at least I know what's in them. Being in the world and not of it seems to get harder each year.

The Teen Choice Awards just showcased 16-year-old Miley Cyrus in biker boots doing a pole dance. I have nothing left to say.
