TV Land has recently begun airing the vile new program "Teachers." The previews alone are disgusting, and that is extremely disturbing since it involves a young cast. The series airs on Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. CT with a 14-L rating, but the previews air much earlier in the evening when children are likely watching TV. The advertisements for "Teachers" are airing during shows such as the "Andy Griffith Show" and other family-friendly programs. If the promos are this bad, then obviously the show is not suitable for TV. The network is marketing this show with the line "six elementary school teachers try to mold young minds, even though their own lives aren't really together."

Teaching is an honorable but often thankless job. Students are showing less respect for teachers every year, and programs like this are not going to help the situation. Teachers are already underappreciated, and kids are bullied enough by peers, so to show them being bullied by their teachers is horrendous. Apparently nothing is off limits for this TV Land show that drags teachers through the mud, and then has teachers verbally attacking students.

Teacher discussions with students, coworkers, and parents involve sexual innuendos, one night stands, sleeping around, drugs, alcohol, lying, deception, and romantic weekends.

1MM wants to support and encourage teachers, not belittle, mock, or bring them down as TV Land is doing. Everyone knows that the entertainment industry desensitizes viewers, especially impressionable young minds.

The name of the show and the school campus setting along with elementary age cast members will attract young viewers. The content in this program is inappropriate for children and teens and will send the wrong message to America's youth, not to mention it is offensive for any age.

TV Land's newest show "Teachers" is irresponsible and an insult to all teachers. The network is encouraging crude dialogue, offensive gestures at school, teachers being cruel to young children, and questioning authority.

Please use the information we have provided to contact Simply Orange (Coca-Cola) and ask that they pull their financial support from "Teachers."
