Urge Sears to Stop Sponsoring Wife Swapping Show

After A&E's reality series "Neighbors With Benefits" failed, the network is now attempting to revive the crazy idea that viewers want to see infidelity by trying a two-week spouse switch for wedded couples. Will audiences want to watch adultery? Not likely. FYI (owned by A&E) has begun airing the "Seven Year Switch," an eight-episode series in which married couples put their marriage on the line by shacking up with a "new partner" for a couple weeks. The premiere for this disgusting program aired July 7 at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT. 

FYI assumes that seven years of marriage marks the point at which couples become "restless and dissatisfied." In the series, four couples "at a crossroads in their relationship" get the chance to shack up with a stranger for two weeks in an "experimental marriage." 

They will eat, live and, yes, "sleep" with these total strangers. The experimental homes have only one bedroom and one bed since they are to live as husband and wife. 

At the end of what the network explains is a switch therapy experiment, each of the married couples will reunite and decide whether to go their separate ways or stay together forever. This immoral show belittles and makes a mockery of marriage. 

Gena McCarthy, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development at FYI, described the show as an experiment to determine whether absence really does make the heart grow fonder, sidestepping the whole sleeping with a stranger element. 

Please use the information we have provided to contact Sears and ask that they pull their financial support from "Seven Year Switch."
