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.

Ads are inappropriate

The ads are terrible. Watching tv for kids and the ads were so inappropriate. Sexual content that was shocking. There is no way to fix ads and since they were ads for their programming I’m unsure if even upgrading would remove these particular ads. Adult supervision for sure.

Too much sex

Violent horror movie commercials

Even with parental controls on, watching MLB game, horror movie commercials come on! Very disturbing for children just trying to watch a baseball game on a Sunday! We watch games on MLB tv but the Sunday games are on peacock even with that subscription.

This title has:

Too much violence
