    LOS ANGELES, Calif. — As if parents needed another reason to turn off the television, the Parents Television Council recently released, “Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing: A Content Analysis of Children’s Television.”

    According to the study, which looked at 443.5 hours of entertainment programming for school-aged children aged 5 to 10 during after-school and Saturday morning hours, “there is more violence on children’s entertainment programming than on adult-oriented television.”

    The study examined the programs of eight broadcast or expanded cable networks: ABC, Fox, NBC, WB, ABC Family, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.
