I fail to understand how downgrading your package will help if all of these shows are on network TV and therefor available over the air with rabbit ears.
CSI and Prison Break are favorites in our house. DD watches all three of them. It is what sparked her interest in wanting to be a doctor. First she wanted to be a CSI. Then a coroner, then a surgeon, now she is not sure what type of doctor but she wants to go to Medical School.
I don't watch Prison Break but she watches it with dad.. and well no one in our house watches the family guy.. but it is my understanding that that is also on network TV.
Another part of the problem may be other kids. This might be why he wont let up on this issue. Everyone is probably talking about what happened on CSI, the Family Guy, Prison Break at school. Because you don't allow him to watch these shows, he can't participate in the conversation and feels left out. Maybe made fun of. Just something to think about.
