Embarrassing for women

This show should be canceled. These women demand respect yet dance like they're on a stripper pole half naked. It's embarrassing for the woman who advance themselves intellectually and push to be a decent contributor to society. These woman are twenty-something's and still live with their parents or mooch off their significant others since they can't support themselves because they choose to use their bodies instead of brains. It's just embarrassing.

Old Dogs

They absolutely condemn a poor girl for wearing cutouts on a dress but yet they show boobs and butt..its time Dallas Cowboys get some young blood in there because these old girl coaches need to retire. They would never make it by today's standard. It's about time other NFL teams get other cheerleader reality shows. Dallas hasn't won a championship in how long...BORING!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (4 ):

It's hard not to feel conflicted when watching this show. It features women putting their heart and soul into making a team that was founded -- and continues to exist -- for the purpose of providing eye candy for male football fans. On the other hand, it's an honest portrayal of what goes into to creating these popular American icons. And it definitely shows viewers how much hard work and determination goes into becoming a professional cheerleader.
