TV Watch Launches #SafeTV Campaign
Will give parents graphic help in interpreting ratings

The graphic, which can be embedded on websites, explains that a TV-Y7-FV fantasy violence rating indicates a show is appropriate to children age seven and older due to fantasy violence.
The graphic will also be printed up as a poster and offered to churches and schools. The Pinterest page will include infographics and other boards.
TV Watch was formed in the mid-2000s in response to a push in Congress to boost indecency enforcement post-Janet Jackson's Super Bowl reveal. Its goal is to promote parental control over increased government relation.
Many of the same members of TV Watch also teamed last month on a parental control education effort.
Those efforts come in the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings and increased pressure from Washington for strategies to combat gun violence.
