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.

Unhappy now

Why are your ad for other programs larger than your program that is currently showing. This just started. I don't appreciate commercials taking over almost the entire screen. I have watched some of the other programs shown on smaller side scripts. Since this started I do NOT watch the other programs!
