Study: Little respect for marriage on TV

There's plenty of sex on television but little respect for marriage, according to a study by the Parents Television Council.The group analyzed scripted shows on all the major networks for four weeks, including ABC's "Grey's Anatomy".

It found that in the shows overall, references to adultery outnumbered those to marital sex two to one, and often featured kinky or bizarre practices.

The group contends children absorb and even imitate what it calls socially destructive behavior.

A non-partisan group TV Watch blasted the report, saying the Parents Television Council won't be happy until it can impose its personal and selective judgments.
