Dark, Violent Content Marketed to Children During Super Bowl
The Parents Television Council expressed concern over the volume of adult-rated promotional content that aired during last night’s Super Bowl LI broadcast on Fox.

“Super Bowl LI was a championship for the ages, thankfully due to the football game and the halftime show, and not from wardrobe malfunctions, f-bombs or middle-fingers aimed at viewers. While we’re grateful for that good news, the bad news is that there was a troubling volume of movie trailers and TV promos marketing explicit programming. Fox mixed dark and violent ads into what was otherwise an exciting Super Bowl football game and halftime show that millions of children and families were watching,” said PTC President Tim Winter.
