TV Worth Watching?

Previews of the new TV shows

In good news, the Parents Television Council says that “Black-ish” and “Cristela” look promising for families, and should make for shows that don’t have much objectionable content.
“Black-ish deals with serious questions of assimilation and race – but does so in the format of a family-friendly comedy.” And about “Cristela,” the PTC writes, “In this tremendously upbeat program, Cristela faces down her co-workers’ ignorance of Latino life with humanity and humor, while at home she handles her family’s attitudes with the same sunny yet sarcastic comedy.
The PTC recommends that parents exercise caution with other ABC shows, “Forever,” “Manhattan Love Story,” and “Selfie.”Full reviews for these ABC’s shows can be found here:


Manhattan Love Story


Please visit the PTC’s Family Guide for further information and reviews about these and other shows as the fall season begins.
