While the show centers on the character of Amy and her pregnancy and her family problems, like other teen soaps, there are various storylines on other teenagers at Ulysses S.
After losing her virginity to Ricky Underwood at band camp, Amy Juergens discovers that she’s pregnant. Grace hands in her pompoms after she’s caught on tape defending herself against two drunken men. Amy faces her first day back at school, while Cindy Lee encourages Adrian to foster a relationship with her father. This runsA 6 minutes and it has interviews with the creator, Brenda Hampton, and cast members including Molly Ringwald, among other. A high-school guidance counselor agrees to change a student’s schedule so that he is more likely to meet a girl who will have sex with him. Sound like the kind of racy fare one might see on HBO or its slightly tamer cousin, the CW? With episodes showing teens in bed together and frank discussion of masturbation and internet porn, the content is so adult, it prompted one Huffington Post critic to quip, “If that’s family programming, what would non-family programming look like?
ABC has historically been known as a family channel, a network safe for families to watch together during prime time hours. With sexual content on TV doubling in the past few years, there has been many studies conducted in order to measure the increase in sexual programming to teenager behavior. According to research conducted by the independent, nonprofit firm RAND, watching television programs with sexual content not only makes teens more likely to engage in sex, but also increases the likelihood of pregnancy.
A previous study by the RAND organization also found that teens who watch such programming are twice as likely to begin engaging in sexual intercourse in the following year as those who don’t.
Said Rebecca Collins, the psychologist who headed the 2004 study, “This is the strongest evidence yet that the sexual content of television programs encourages adolescents to initiate sexual intercourse and other sexual activities. Do you think by watching numerous shows similar to this would have an impact in the way a person behaves or considers norm? Oh come on, this show is so moralistic and preachy, there is nothing encouraging teenagers to have sex, just the opposite.
As a 16 year old female I believe that this show is absoutely ridiculous and should not be on TV. What they need to do, is hire more ORDINARY looking girls, and WORK ON CREATING MORE INTERESTING PLOTS AND DIALOGUE!!!!

My favorite shows right now include Friday Night Lights, Party Down,A and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.A  I'm a huge Kyle Chandler fan, and I would watch Kristen Bell or Hugh Laurie read the phone book. I live in a suburb of Philly and in my spare time (that's time away from work and TV), I like to read Shakespeare sonnets and plays 20 times apiece,A hunt ghosts, sing at the top of my lungs to Butch Walker songs, and write!
A So far, the only people not coming are Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, Steve Carrell, and BJ Novak.A  But everyone else, and we're talking everyone, like all of the writers, the rest of the cast, they'll be there, and I'll be hobnobbing right along with them! Friday night, I watched Canterbury's Law (well, okay, I DVR'd it, and watched it Sunday morning); it was really really good!!A  I love Juliana Margulies and I hate FOX for running the show into the ground, essentially, with Friday night airings.A  Hopefully it lives long enough to tell us what happened to her son!! Otherwise, the show will ultimately fail, because if you don’t care about what happens to these characters why tune in?
It has all of the classic element of any teen soap, which means it does feature some stereotypical storylines and characters. As Amy contends with her family life, and struggles to come to terms with her pregnancy, she seeks solace from her friends, Lauren and Madison.
Meanwhile, Grace is torn between forgiving Jack and moving on, and Amy experiences her first bouts of morning sickness.

Also, Amy shares the news of her pregnancy with Ashleya€”leaving their parents in the dark. Meanwhile, Amy contemplates having an abortion, and George leaves home and moves in with Cindy Lee, Adrian’s mother. They talk about their character roles and the overall series.A They also speak about the chemistry between the cast as well. I live by the motto "you can't fight fate!" More importantly, I watch WAY too much television, but I do so for the benefit of everyone reading this now.
A cheerleader breaks up with her boyfriend after discovering that he accepted oral sex from the school tramp.
The show, which focuses on the romantic entanglements of a pregnant 15-year-old girl and her friends, has given ABC Family its biggest audience yet, with nearly 4 million viewers per episode.
However the two new programs have raised huge concerns due to it’s heavy sexual content.
Not surprisingly, the studies conducted by independent research groups show that sexual content does impact behavior of its viewers. A 2008 study published in the Journal of Pediatrics asked 2,000 12- to 17-year-olds to keep track of the television shows they watched that contained sexual content.
The impact of television viewing is so large that even a moderate shift in the sexual content of adolescent TV watching could have a substantial effect on their sexual behavior. The entire show operates on an assumption that sex is meant exclusively for marriage, that teenage sex is immoral, will prevent you from reaching your full potential, and propounds a version of christianity that requires abstinance before marriage. No one would argue that all forms of media from movies to music to advertising has a powerful effect on how we think and what we believe. Although it lasted only seconds, it was enough to get her pregnant and now she must face the inevitable.A She is devastated and doesnt know what to do, doesnt know how to explain it to her family and doesnt know if she can have a baby. The characters on this ABC Family drama are quite likable and actually are relatable to real American teenagers today. However, this is the first television series to honestly talk about teenage sex and the consequences of it. Meanwhile, Grace Bowman, the most popular girl at school, promises abstinence to her parents.
Fields, Grace is pressured into wearing her purity ring, and Ben and Amy consider having sex. Starring Shailene Woodley, Kenny Baumann, Francia Raisa, Megan Park, Darren Kagasoff, Greg Finley II, Renee Olstead, Camille Winbush, Jorge Pallo, Mark Derwin, Molly Ringwald, India Eisley, Josie Bissett, John Schneider, Luke Zimmerman, Amy Rider, Allen Evangelista, and Ernie Hudson.
A good-girl French horn player discovers she is pregnant after a one-night stand at band camp and debates with a friend whether or not to terminate the pregnancy.
This is millions more than the CW’s much-hyped teen drama Gossip Girl draws in, despite the fact that ABC Family broadcasts in far fewer homes.
Those who watched a high amount of such programming were twice as likely to get pregnant or to get someone else pregnant. Virginity is depicted as morally superior and teenage sexuality is equated with mental illness and depravity.
The reason why this show is so high in ratings is because the kids aren’t watching it wih their parents. And there was no guidence counciler that reranged the kids class schedual so he could find a girl to have sex with! However it is fascinating to really examine the underlying messages and hidden philosophies behind each story or ad. While all of these shows featured storylines common to all teenagers, including pregnancy, there hasn’t been a television series that specifically centered on teenage pregnancy. Some other teen soaps feature characters, who talk older than they are or live in places they can only dream of living.

For the most part it is well-written and surprisingly the melodrama is kept to a minimum, or at least there seems to be less of it in this show than other teen soaps.
It’s not the greatest teen soap opera ever, but there are worse teen soaps out there. Moreover, the show blatantly rejects the most reasonable solution to teenage pregnancy – abortion. I do not think that this TV show should be a show for those of all ages, and I do not think it will be a bad influence on those who watch it. Posts will vary from examinations into advertising campaigns or philosophies conveyed in a movie, to deeper discussions about life philosophies, discussions about truth and meaning. That was until this year when ABC Family took a chance on another new original television series called The Secret Life of the American Teenager. So in a way The Secret Life of the American Teenager falls into the same traps that other teen soaps fall into.
It doesn’t have quite the humor to draw in non-teen soap fans, but for families with older teenagers this is a great series to watch and discuss. Yet many argue that the show’s material is hardly appropriate entertainment for the 12- to 17-year-old viewers it attracts. And the parents who allow is are simply ignorant, and not concerned with their child’s well being.
If you want to find out watch it your self and then you can state a opinon about if its wrong or right but if you haven’t watched it you can’t judge! The network had already created hit shows Kyle XY and Greek, so why not roll the dice again.
You have your usual stereotypical storylines, but unlike other shows, this series is honest about teenagers having sex and the consquences of it. It makes me soo upset that earlier this year our President wanted to inspire the nations children and there was a public outcry, while there is TV programs that are feeding there children sublimnal messages about sex, and there is not a parent out there trying to get it off the air. Also in the end of every episod they have a teen from the show talk about how you should talk to your parents about sex and what the concequences are of having sex. Also in the end of every episode they have a teen from the show who talk about how you should talk to your parents about sex and what the consequences are of having sex.. Not only are the young mostly unknown stars good in their roles, but the adults are as well.
And there is no part where the guidance counselor switched anyones class to get them closer to a girl they can have sex with. However, this television series goes much more in depthA about all aspects of teenagers and sex, including abstinence. In fact, older viewers of this show will recognize many of the adult actors in this series. The guidance counselor actually told the students to quit talking to him about everything that was going on that didn’t have to do with school. As I said before I do not think this is a show for those of all ages, but I do not think it will be a bad influence on those who watch it. These characters are placed into adult roles without realizing that they are not mentally prepared just because of their age and mind development to handle situations like the ones that are being confronted on this show. Human nature has shown that the unconscious mind will follow anything that’s out there.
