A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Unlike many reality shows featuring women, this one focuses on the strong relationships between the performers and how they support one another through difficulties. The value of hard work and having goals is a major theme.
Positive Role Models
All of the women work very hard and are committed to making the group a success regardless of their personal issues. They demonstrate friendship and kindness with one another. One performer speaks frankly about clinical depression, in a way that others might find helpful.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some flirtatious behavior and references to having sex. The women often wear skin-revealing clothing on and off stage, including bras and extremely short shorts and shirts. Sometimes nipples are slightly visible through sheer outfits. Pregnancy is a theme.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the reality series Chasing the Saturdays is a promotional vehicle for a British all-girl pop band as they attempt to break into the American music market. It features lots of drinking (cocktails, champagne), as well as some salty vocab ("piss," stronger words "bleeped"), and some references to having sex, along with lots of slinky outfits. On the positive side, the women are supportive of one another through various struggles.
Is It Any Good?
Chasing the Saturdays features the all-girl group as the women navigate their way through endless recording sessions, rehearsals, performances, interviews, and other requirements of the industry, while trying to negotiate their own personal lives. But unlike many of the reality series of this kind, most of the show focuses on how they negotiate family commitments and real-life medical issues in order to be there.
For these women, coming to America is starting from the bottom. But unlike many others before them, their journey is a little bit more luxurious thanks to their success in the United Kingdom. But the show does succeed in highlighting some of what it takes to make it to musical stardom, and underscores that success is never guaranteed, regardless of how famous you may be somewhere else.
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.
