Death is Rated PG-14

I happened to stumble across an episode of Boston Legal just a few minutes ago. The main story line was about a man who is about to be executed - for what I don't know. The execution itself was handled pretty well - it was all I could do to not turn the channel. (It was in Texas and so by lethal injection.) But I happened to press "info" on my cable remote. And you know what? This episode is rated PG-14. PG-14. The delibrate killing of a human being by the state is only rated "Parental Guidance - 14 years or older."

It's not X for extreme violence? It's not even R? It's only PG-14?

I'm appalled.
