Real Country

This show is a farce! It should be called bogus country! It's a terrible competition show with competitors that are horrible. The good ones, when there is one, don't get picked. I wouldn't waste my time on this show or on renewing it...

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This upbeat series features singers performing music that reflects the themes and values of the country music genre. While some of the judges prefer more traditional country crooners, others look for acts that offer more contemporary and diverse versions of country songs. But regardless of their preferences, they're looking for acts that are authentic.

There are some mildly crude remarks, as well as lots of references to drinking and other adult-oriented behaviors. But much of this is characterized by the cast as being part of country music culture. If you are a country music fan and can look past this, Real Country will prove itself to be a fun viewing option.

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.
