My kids don't get to watch much TV. But definite no-nos in my house are:__________________
wrestling (WWF variety)
an alarming number of cartoons that are rated Y an on Cartoon Network (i.e., Cow & Chicken, Ren & Stimpy, Ed Ed & Eddie, Stupid Dog, etc.)
just about ANYTHING that comes on after 8:00 on network TV
CNN (they will just put anything on screen)
We watch a good bit of national public television, TLC, discovery channel, Disney when the TV is on.
Now my kids are still very young so this list will probably change as they are older and able to handle being exposed to more things.
On the nudity front - I honestly don't have a problem with my kids being exposed to nudity as long as it is not being portrayed in a sexual way. I mean, you go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and there is nudity all over the place. When I took my son to his "siblings" class when his sister was born, they saw nudity in the film about breastfeeding. Nothing wrong with the body - but 5 year olds don't need to see sex. Just my opinion.
