A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The interns often exhibit iffy behavior both on the job and at home, though they do get some limited guidance from Ian Smith. The cast members, all of whom are African American, come from various socioeconomic backgrounds. Five of the interns are female; one is a lesbian.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of yelling during heated arguments between the interns/roommates. Some shoving, pushing, and hitting. The interns refer to "killing" and "murdering" each other, but it's in the context of beating each other at various challenges.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Flirting, hugging, kissing, strong sexual innuendo, and some casual hookups. Some sexually explicit dialogue, including discussions about sexual positions and anal sex. Ivy's virginity is discussed openly. Marc shares a room with three of the women. Nights on the town feature some provocative dancing. Some camera shots zero in on some female cast members' low-cut blouses (showing cleavage) and other revealing attire.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this reality series about college-student interns focuses on leadership and professionalism -- the interns are expected to work hard and develop skills designed to help them succeed -- these lessons are often overshadowed by the drinking, arguing, and sexual activity that takes place in the Real World-esque house they all live in. There's also strong language (words like "s--t" and "f--k" are bleeped, bur present) and pretty explicit sex talk (including discussion of virginity, positions, and anal sex).
Is It Any Good?
This rather unoriginal show is a spin-off of the popular BET series College Hill. It combines Real World-like drama (though it's not quite as raunchy as that reality mainstay) with some of the competitiveness featured on The Apprentice.
The show does focus a fair amount on the importance of leadership and professionalism, stressing the idea that success only comes to those who work hard for it. But despite these important lessons, the show's strong sexual content, rough language, and frequent drinking make it a less-than-outstanding viewing choice for kids and young teens.
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.
