Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very good

I'm about to be 20 and I grew up with the original iCarly! The new one has swearing, alcohol drinking not by much, and maybe a bare butt from the side, curtisy of Spencer! This show is made for the kids that grew up watching the original iCarly that are now adult fans

Definitely not G rated! I swear, they're really pushing the envelope on what they can squeeze by in kids shows these days, smh.
