What parents need to know

Positive messages

Marriage, parenthood, illness, and finding balance are all themes here.

Positive role models

The couple wants a normal life despite their public personas and public discussions of some very personal problems. They are loving and committed parents.

Violence

Mild arguments occasionally break out between the couple, but it's nothing major. Giuliana is a cancer survivor.

Sex

Contains references to looking sexy. Earlier episodes deal with Giuliana's inability to have children, surrogacy, and other fertility-related themes.

Language

Words such as "hell" and "damn" are used, albeit rarely.

Consumerism

Scenes from shows that Giuliana hosts are sometimes shown.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Wine, champagne, and other alcoholic beverages are visible during social functions. Contains semi-humorous references to "not doing drugs."

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Giuliana & Bill is a mild and lighthearted celebrity reality show, but over the years it's dealt with some very serious themes, including infertility, breast cancer, surrogacy, and other mature topics. The language is mild (an occasional "hell" or "damn"), and, despite references to looking sexy and occasional scenes of the couple talking in bed, there's not a lot of risque behavior. Drinking is visible during social functions.
