Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Most adults and older children are bound to chuckle at this single-camera comedy. But the show's humor, while smart, relies too much on off-color bathroom references (with an unexplained focus on testicles), and characters are typically shown doing and saying things you wouldn't want your kids to repeat. On the plus side, the show can be used as a starting point for family discussions about the way news is actually produced and whether it's ever truly objective -- or, for that matter, newsworthy.

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.
