A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The brothers come across as refreshingly humble and level-headed, and they often credit their parents for their well-rounded upbringing. Throughout the series, they emphasize positive behavior like staying healthy through diet and exercise, spending time with family, and giving something back to the communities they visit.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Nothing suggestive, but lots of scenes show adoring young female fans screaming and crying over the brothers.

Products & Purchases
The Jonases -- already a huge brand themselves -- get plenty of exposure from the show. They often carry Starbucks beverages, though the logo is usually partially obscured. A few scenes show them shopping for shoes and clothes and discussing what styles are "cool."
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this short-form Disney reality series follows the ultra-popular Jonas Brothers on their first nationwide tour, giving fans a glimpse of how the guys prepare for concerts and spend their free time. There's no content here to concern parents of the band's many fervent tween fans, who will enjoy the backstage pass and may be surprised -- and pleased -- to learn that the stars place strong importance on family time, education, and healthy lifestyles. As reality TV goes, this is as squeaky-clean as they come, though it could spark new/increased interest in the band in any tweens who aren't already avid fans.
Is It Any Good?
This reality series will appeal to fans' curiosity with its coveted behind-the-scenes glimpse at the pop stars' lives, and there's no reason for parents to fret over their tweens tuning in. These brothers are known for being all-around nice guys, and the show is as squeaky-clean as they are. At nearly every turn, the rockers demonstrate that their success is built on a foundation of strong family ties (they often credit their parents for keeping them grounded), education, healthy lifestyles, and civic mindedness.
It's unavoidable that the series will serve as a marketing tool for Jonas Brothers merchandise and music, and the talented siblings are sure to win over plenty of new fans with their charm and charisma (those shaggy locks don't hurt, either). But it's clear that the show's intent is to entertain fans, which it does in a surprisingly feel-good, non-commercialized way.
