Lagniappe: Ever wondered what the TV ratings really mean?

For an assignment in school, I had to take the TV ratings guidelines and evaluate a prime-time show against the guidelines to determine if the rating were accurate.

If you care to know what the TV-14 or TV-PG really means, please look here (TV Ratings Guidelines).

The biggest note I had was how the sub-category letters change in meaning, so a TV-PG “L” (infrequent coarse language) doesn’t mean the same thing as a TV-14 “L” (strong coarse language).
