Camouflaging the word “bitch” in the title didn’t fool the Parents Television Council. The watchdog is up in arms over what it deems is “offensive content” on ABC’s new comedy Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, which premiered last week. According to the PTC, “the program is a sexist mixed-bag of hedonism, drug-use, alcohol abuse (including the main character plying a 13-year-old boy with alcohol to get him drunk) and explicit levels of promiscuity that are shocking even by today’s broadcast TV standards.” The organization’s primary targets are the show’s main advertisers, AT&T and Volkswagen.
