A new show on MTV shows a lot of skin, and that skin belongs to teenagers. The Parents Television Council calls the teen drama, "Skins," the most dangerous show on television for kids. The New York Times reports that MTV executives fear an upcoming episode could violate child pornography laws, since most of the actors are teenagers themselves.

Our guest is Bob Thompson, founding director of Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University.

This segment aired on January 25, 2011.
