Jackass is meant for a mature audience

Parents need to know that much like Ridiculousness, Jackass is a show about men attempting stunts out of peer pressure. The name implies it all, and the cast certainly live by that name. Because the stunts in Jackass are so dangerous, viewers under 17 should refrain from watching them, especially with the idea of performing them at home. Do not copy any of the stunts shown here, as they can lead to injury or even death. This reality show may be for risk-takers, but the same cannot be said for younger viewers. This show is rated TV-MA for a reason. Nudity, language, and fatal stunts; what parent would allow their child to watch Jackass?
