ABC’s newest sitcom The Real O’Neals is described as “just your typical all-American, Catholic, divorcing, disgraced, law-breaking, gay family” and continues on to say their family is “a perfect mess.” It is now airing on Tuesday evenings at 8:30/7:30 p.m. CT.
The Real O’Neals mocks Christianity and insults Catholicism. One Million Moms (1MM) recognizes this show ridicules people of faith, and Christians across America are offended by it.
The Parents Television Council, which has also taken issue with the program, recently released research it conducted about the graphic content on the series, which is rated PG.
“PTC research has found that the first three episodes of ABC’s new show, ‘The Real O’Neals’ were saturated with adult content,” noted PTC.
“Children watching were exposed to either sexual dialogue or bleeped profanities on an average of once every 43 seconds — in spite of the fact that the show is rated TV-PG and airs as early as 7:30 p.m. in half the country.”
PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement that “ABC has essentially inserted explicit and adult-themed humor into a PG-rated, primetime program that is about a family, created for families.”
“Even worse, much of the sexual and expletive-laced dialogue is delivered by characters who are children. Simply put, the network is defrauding parents by rating this show as appropriate for young children,” continued Winter.
“I’d argue that most parents would not agree that the kind of content found in ‘The Real O’Neals’ is anywhere near acceptable for family audiences.”
In 2014, CBS premiered a series called “The McCarthys” involving an sports-focused family with a gay son who was an adult. The program was canceled after one season.
Catholic League President Bill Donohue seems optimistic that a similar fate may meet The Real O’Neals, arguing that the series was already failing in the ratings.
“ABC is in a jam and they know it. Even they must admit that last night’s episode of ‘The Real O’Neals’ was just plain stupid. The ratings show it: once again, it trailed the competition on CBS and NBC,” wrote Donohue.
It is almost impossible to describe the depth of depravity found in the sitcom The Real O’Neals. It is impossible to list them all, so here are a few scenes from this TV – PG – D rated show:
- Jesus appears where only the gay son can see and talk to Him, and He is annoyed by the mom’s strict guidelines for her family.
- The daughter steals money she is supposedly raising for charity.
- The daughter “attempts to prove” that there is no God in a science fair project.
- ABC network refers to this highly dysfunctional family as “the perfect Irish-Catholic family.”
- A statue of Mary is kept above the O’Neal’s toilet to remind the boys to put the seat down.
- The first jab at Jesus comes only 52 seconds into the first episode.
- The mother encourages her 16-year-old gay son to “try sex” with a girl.
- Vulgar language.
- The mom makes pancakes shaped like the face of Jesus to guilt trip her anorexic son into eating.
- One of the show’s producers is anti-Christian bigot Dan Savage, and the show is said to be loosely based on his life.
- The most recent episode claims that 10% of Americans are gay. Maybe in Hollywood!
