A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Sexist and occasional racial/ethnic stereotypes abound, some more subtly than others.
Positive Role Models
CeeLo and his fellow singers are good friends and loyal to each other, but some exhibit sexist behavior.
Violence & Scariness
The group members occasionally disagree with each other, but there's no real fighting. Some of the members have had some well-publicized run-ins with the law for violent behavior.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Sexual innuendo and lots of sexist behavior. Women are shown in tight, skimpy, and revealing clothing. There also are some crude references to genitals.

Words such as "hell," "a--hole," and "s--t" audible; words such as "f--k" bleeped. The "N" word also is audible.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that CeeLo Green's The Good Life is a reality series featuring the singer and the members of his band, Goodie Mob. CeeLo fans most likely will be drawn to it, but it's full of enough sexist behavior and strong language (curses such as "s--t" and the "N" word are audible) that it's an iffy choice for younger teens.
Is It Any Good?
From starting a chauffeur service featuring scantily clad female drivers to preparing to throw the first pitch at a Dodger's game, CeeLo and his friends enjoy some Entourage-like moments while they work on their music. Appearances by musicians such as Eric Bénet add to the atmosphere.
Much of the show is about CeeLo celebrating his wealthy lifestyle and enjoying the fact that he can do whatever he wants as a result. His fans will be drawn to it, and reality enthusiasts may find the humorous (though clearly staged) moments entertaining. But, outside of this, there's just not a whole lot here.
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.
