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.

Liked American Dad, But...

To the parents reading this because they are being swarmed by their kids asking if they can watch this, Don't let them I can't stress it enough, in the end it's your choice but read this first this show contains High Sexual References and Content I believe this show also contains nudity but I might be thinking of family guy ( Don't let them watch that either just as bad as this one might be worse) that sums this review up they call It adult animated for a reason my personal opinion would be 21+ if that was an option Thanks for reading.
