This show is really funny, however a lot of kids my age don't care because of the political aspects of it. However, it is appropriate for anyone 13 and up, although it really depends on the episode. I've seen ones that were completly clean, and others that my mom almost made me turn off. You just never know. (But if you want to check to see if your kids can watch it, they rerun last nights episode at 10:30, 2:30 and 8:30)
Hilarious! I just love this show.
Language: Not really too much swearing beyond b_tch and some bleeped out swears.
Sex: One episode showed a spoof on sexually enticing advertisements...for monkeys. The ad showed a female monkey with very visible genitalia. Besides that, there's some other sexual innuendo and terms like p_nis and v_gina.
The Colbert Report needs a mature and thoughtful audience to sift through the host's satire and raunchy jokes. Underneath is a brilliant comedic take on politics and pop culture. Well worth the watch for media-savvy teens and political junkies alike.
This is the greatest tv show of all time. It is a very funny and highly educational political/social satire that all teens and adults should watch. There is mild language usually used 0-4 times in each episode, and depending on what has been in the news lately, there can be some sexual discussion, but none of the content is anywhere near what kids hear at school and on other shows and in music these days, so encourage your child to watch it.
Ive watched this since I was 11 and I got most of the jokes. There is some mild language (nothing your kid wouldn't here in school) and mild sexual references. I think it is fine for 12+ as long as u get the jokes.
My 11 year old loves watching this show with me and his dad. Yes, sometimes the banter goes over his head, but if he doesn't understand something, he asks about it. I think we have to assume that our kids are intelligent people who want intelligent humor (along with their regular helping of potty humor) and I see no harm in them watching this show.
