A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The message that you don't need a lot of money to make a house sell-able is a large part of the show. The show also promotes teamwork and sticking to a deadline.
Positive Role Models
The star/hostess can be something of a martinet -- driving her crew, complaining, and generally freaking out at times.
Lots of "gateway" language like "damn," "sucks," "frickin'," and "hell," as well as the occasional bleeped word (often during particularly stressful moments).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although the star/hostess of this show about families who need help selling their homes can be a little harsh in her assessments of the homes and hard on her crew, she also gives sellers realistic, practical advice. Kids aren't likely to be interested, but if they are, the use of some "gateway" swear words (usually used in the heat of an intense moment) like "crap," "sucks," and "hell" is about as iffy as the content gets.
Is It Any Good?
Lynch is rather fun to watch. And, oddly enough, even though she can be a little harsh at times, she's very quick to point out that her comments are about the houses, not the families. In one case, for example, she acknowledges that the family photos all over one wall in a house are cute -- but she still says they have to come down.
The hard part is that her most negative behavior -- particularly her frazzled meltdowns as her deadline approaches -- is also the most fun to watch. It's not full-scale abusive temper tantrums, but it's not exactly behavior you'd want kids engaging in when they're facing a tight deadline, either.
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.
