Married...with ChildrenMarried...with Children - During the 1988-89 season of the irreverent sitcom MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN/FOX/1987-97 a letter writing campaign, led by a housewife named Terry Rakolta from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, encouraged viewers and advertisers to boycott the show.

Ms. Rakolta was offended over the January 15, 1989 episode No. 306 "Her Cup Runneth Over" in which Peg Bundy (Katey Sagal) searched for a new bra at "Francine's of Hollywood" (whose motto is "If you've got the boulders, we've got the holders").

The whole brouhaha only made the program more popular by drawing more viewers to check out the zany sitcom that featured chauvinism, semi-delinquent children, (including a promiscuous blond bimbo daughter), frustrated husbands, horny wives and libidinous neighbors.
