Parents Television Council, a non-partisan nonprofit group, has formally asked CBS to kill its plans to air Dexter.

In a press release, PTC describes the series as a "graphically violent show about a hero who is a serial killer." The series, which is in its second season on Showtime, is set to air on CBS starting Feb. 17. PTC, which was launched in 1995 by conservative activist L. Brent Bozell III, has previously campaigned against shows including Nip/Tuck and for shows like Joan of Arcadia.

What do you think about the Council's efforts to ax Dexter from the CBS lineup? Do the PTC's efforts potentially infringe on the First Amendment, or are they right on target? Are there any other ways to deal with cultural discontent than how the PTC is approaching this? Let us know. - Anna Dimond
