Year in and year out, the Annual Report, a 60 page or more study of box office statistics, TV ratings, cultural trends, and religious beliefs and practices, has shown that family-friendly movies and television programs with Christian, biblical faith and values make the most money and get the highest ratings, and that explicit sex, nudity and ultra-violence don’t really sell.
