Hilarious, light-hearted fun! I sure needed this in 2020!

This has a weird opening, but give it at least two episodes. It is mindless fun and easy to watch. It's not for the angsty at heart. This is great for unwinding after a long day of working and parenting and trying to survive 2020? I need to relax and laugh and this show gets the job done in spades! the adults are all unique and strong personalities whose job it is to entertain and they do a great job of it!!! Allison and Jay have a solid relationship with everyday struggles because of and despite their wealth. They enjoy flirting through witty banter and sarcasm which is great. The kids are really funny and I imagine the boy Dylan is in time out most of his days. This is a must watch you can binge in one-two days because 6 short episodes. There is some language and adult topics/innuendo, so I do not recommend for kids even though there are children in other scenes of the show. Put the kids to bed and enjoy!!

Unnecessary Language

This is Rated TV-14 and in the first episode F***K was said 2 times before I turned it off. Why not bleep it out? Very disappointing for what I expected to be a show my family could watch

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This standard reality show features a musician and his family living life in front of the cameras to demonstrate how normal they really are. However, the unscripted series often feels a bit scripted, and some cast members often seem to be playing it up for the cameras. But the more candid moments make up for some of this, thanks to the funny comments and unexpected reactions.

There's plenty of Southern charm here, and Rascal Flatts fans may enjoy this glimpse into the private lives of one of their members. But DeMarcus Family Rules isn't particularly innovative, as far as celebrity reality entertainment goes.
