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.

Badly masked propaganda

Growing up this show was funny and gave you fair jabs at all people. Now its literally has only one joke "conservative bad " . They refuse to touch another subject because they're afraid of being "cancelled" or offending their SJW actors (i say actors because comedians are funny). Maybe the should take a few pages from Dave chappelle

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
