Desperate Housewives, Family Guy, AMERICAN DAD and CSI are among a host of shows which have landed on a parents group's annual list of the worst US primetime shows for family viewing.

The Parents Television Council rated the reality shows EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION and THREE WISHES as the best for family viewing.

The group's president L BRENT BOZELL says, "Families should not be deceived. The top three worst shows all contain crude and raunchy dialogue with sex-themed jokes and foul language."
