I remember as a kid sitting around the TV with my family enjoying our favorite shows together. Family Viewing Hour was first established by the FCC in 1975. Under the policy, each television network in the U.S. had a responsibility to air family-friendly programming during the first hour of the prime time lineup 8 to 9P.
That concept had continued to be used by some viewers who believed in communal family-friendly programming. The TV was considered an electronic fireplace where the family gathered for their warm and fuzzy feeling.
