New TV shows coming this fall are better than what the Parents Television Council has seen for the past few years, markedly veering away from the serial killer genre pattern and moving toward family comedies, says a PTC official.
PTC's Head of Research Operations Christopher Gildemeister prescreened many of the major networks' TV fall lineup (from NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS). Although he said that he has not screened absolutely every new show coming out this fall, he told The Christian Post during an interview Monday, "There may be something out there much better or much worse — I doubt it."
Gildemeister said that the landscape of network TV this year seems to have improved. "This year is better than the last couple previous years have been. The good shows are better than (the ones) that got broadcast in past years, and the bad ones are not as bad — (as) they have been in the past. more >>

America won't be saved by a "political awakening," said Pastor Ronnie Floyd, who was among over 40 Christian leaders that came together at The Gathering to pray for a spiritual transformation in the nation.
"Many of us, as believers, at times if we're not careful, we're more committed to some kind of political awakening," said Floyd at the solemn assembly hosted by Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, Wednesday night.
"That's not the answer to this nation. The answer to the nation is the next great awakening with the Holy Spirit of God. And He wakes up the Church and He shakes the Church," added Floyd, who's the senior pastor of Cross Church in Northwest Arkansas and former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. more >>
U.S. Secretary of Education John King is receiving criticism for his recent statements claiming that children who are homeschooled have fewer options than those enrolled in schools.
At a recent breakfast event sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Secretary King told reporters that he had mixed feelings about homeschooling children.
According to Politico, King noted that while he knew many homeschooling families do it "incredibly well" and homeschooled students have had "very tremendous academic success," he believed homeschooled children are not "getting the range of options that are good for all kids." more >>
