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.

We all know and love the old MadTv. The seasons were great and packed with comedy, as well as NOT FOR CHILDREN!!!! This show wasn't meant to be a "positive" view for children. Even then there was some adult humor and curse words. Yes there is violence, sex, swearing.....etc.... thats why there are ratings for certain ages. If you let your child watch the show, don't complain about what the content was about blah blah. If you grew up watching the show then you should know what the show will be about.
