Group to monitor "Desperate Housewives."

On the heels of the demise of NBC's "Book of Daniel" - which many Christians saw as an affront to their faith and actively opposed - ABC's popular "Desperate Housewives" program has become the latest target of a media watchdog organization that will sponsor a boycott of the show's advertisers., which is affiliated with the American Family Association, calls "Desperate Housewives" "one of the most vulgar and tasteless programs on television."

The group plans to monitor the program from April through June to identify companies that advertise during the show. will then call for a one-year boycott of one or more of the leading sponsors.

So what do you think? Great idea? Taking things a little too far? Or just plain juvenile?

I say go ahead with it. Desperate Housewives is far too scuzzy a program to be on at 9:00/8:00 on Sunday, in my opinion. Besides, it's not like they're threatening to burn down ABC's HQ's or, you know, actually doing it. It's only a peaceful protest.

That just my opinion, though. What's yours?
