I Lov3e this show but I am a 48 yrs of age female who is a Kirstie Alley fan. As far as children go, it would depend on the individual family to make that judgement. My kids are grown so I can not really say now. I think it is pretty innocent . A few bleeps here and there and once in a while they mention the fact that she used to have a cocaine addiction. Other than that it is a funny and hilarious show. I love the housekeeper Magdelana. She is so gosh darn funny. It is very entertaining. in my opinion.
