PTC Launches Campaign to Keep Sexual Threesome Episode of ‘Gossip Girl’ Off the Air B&C

The Parents Television Council launched a letter campaign to about 120 CW affiliates asking them to preempt the Nov. 9 episode of “Gossip Girl” because of reports that it will include a three-way sexual tryst among characters, B&C reports.

If the episode airs, PTC threaten in the letter, the group will consider contacting local and national advertisers, adding “if this program violates broadcast decency law, rest assured that our members will contact the Federal Communications Commission."

The last time PTC tried to organize a similar preemption was for the season finale of Showtime’s “Dexter” in May 2008.
