Parents Television Council Targets "Walking Dead" For Violence

It's a TV show about zombies, what do they expect, My Little Pony graphics?


After taking aim at Howard Stern and the short-lived The Playboy Club, watchdog group the Parents Television Council has found a new target: AMC's The Walking Dead.

The group, a nonpartisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment, has called on the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board to change the zombie drama's TV-14 "misrating," calling out the "hundreds" of scenes of "grisly murder" both of the living and undead featured on the ratings behemoth.
