The article discusses the tendency of cable networks to push the boundaries on what is acceptable on television in the U.S. Because cable networks are competing against broadcast and Internet, their objective is always to get many viewers. Parents who are alarmed of potentially offensive programs are advised to turn the dial or turn off their TV. The author points that 99% of programming does not cross personal bounds.
