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.

Inappropriate and unnecessary comments

Steve Harvey makes the show inappropriate for viewing by those who don't like vulgar gestures and comments. It's a shame, it could be a great show for young inventors.

may bore kids but a nice family show

I watched this for the first time last night and I really had a fun good time with my teen siblings who are fans of shark tank as I am we all loved it and cant wait till next week my only slight word of caution is Mr. Harvey does tend to use a lot of profanity at times . and the show itself may bore the youngest of kids who don't understand the process of inventing but if your kids can handle some mild cable cussing, damn hell ass, and are old enough to appreciate the fun and humor of the show then your family will love it trust me

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
