A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series highlights the value of friendship and having fun while young. Pregnancy is theme in the show, but the value and responsibility of impending motherhood is not.
Positive Role Models
Despite their immature and often inappropriate behaviors, the two women are true, loyal friends to each other.
Violence & Scariness
The women bicker endlessly, but nothing violent. Some clips from original show some clips of past brawls.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the Jersey Shore reality spinoff Snooki & Jwoww offers some of the over-the-top behaviors that the original show is known for, but also contains positive messages about friendship. Pregnancy is also a major theme in the show. The show is definitely milder than the original -- with less drinking and partying -- but the language can be salty ("bitch"; "f--k," "s--t" bleeped), and it contains lots of crude sexual humor.
Is It Any Good?
Snooki & Jwoww highlights some of the over-the-top behaviors that many MTV reality shows are known for, including endless amounts of sexual references, relationship drama, and partying. But it also underscores the value of a loyal friendship, and the importance of this friendship to both women.
It's milder than its parent series, but its positive messages are often overshadowed by what appears to be (at least on camera) a lack of maturity when it comes to being independent and, in the case of Snooki, having a child. There's not a lot of introspection offered here, but Snooki and Jwoww fans will probably find it voyeuristically entertaining.
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.
