Glee The Parents Television Council is at it again, and this time 'Glee' is in their crosshairs.

The watchdog group is targeting 'Glee' (Tuesdays, 8PM ET on Fox) over the Tues., Nov. 8 episode, 'The First Time.' The episode features several teen characters having sex for the first time. Naturally, this has riled the PTC.

According to EW, the PTC is not taking issue with the genders of the couples having sex, just the content matter.

"The fact that 'Glee' intends to not only broadcast, but celebrate children having sex is reprehensible," Tim Winter, PTC president, said in a statement. "The gender of the high school characters involved is irrelevant. Teen sex is now more prevalent on TV than adult sex and 'Glee' is only playing into that trend. Research proves that television is a teen sexual super peer that can, and likely will, influence a teen's decision to become sexually active. Fox knows the show inherently attracts kids; celebrating teen sex constitutes gross recklessness."

Recently, the PTC has targeted 'The Playboy Club,' 'Skins,' and 'The X Factor.' The parents group is taking partial credit for the cancellation of NBC's 'Playboy Club.'
