A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The objective of the show is to win as much money as possible.
Positive Role Models
Contestants are often humorous and self-deprecating. They're all willing to look foolish.
Violence & Scariness
Games can potentially be very physical. Contestants are pushed, hit with large objects, knocked over, etc., but no one gets hurt, despite sometimes looking like they're suffering. Sometimes contestants mildly insult one another.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Don't is a game show hosted by Adam Scott that features contestants completing challenges that often lead to pushing, getting knocked down, driven to exhaustion, and other non-threatening physical discomforts. There's some cursing like "hell" and "bitch"; stronger language is bleeped, usually with mouths covered. Trivia questions often reference pop culture, and Disney themes, characters, and movies are promoted throughout the show.
Is It Any Good?
This absurd series features participants competing in overcomplicated contests designed to make them look like they're in a knockabout comedy show. Teams play to win as much money as possible in each round, which they get to hold on to regardless of what happens in later challenges. As a result, the show relies on the players awkwardly making their way through each game (and on the instant replays and screen captures of their goofiest moments) to make it more entertaining. Some of the show's running gags are funny, while others suffer from bad timing. Overall, Don't requires too much from its TV audience, as well as its contestants, to make it worthwhile.
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.
