A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show sends the message that regardless of how much parents might bicker -- and children get on their nerves -- their love for their kids and each other never falters. That said, sometimes the parents mock their kids (particularly the one who gets good grades), and some characters make stereotypical jokes/comments about the show's homosexual supporting characters.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Relatively mild sexual innuendo between the show's married parents, who have an active sex life. Some jokes based on stereotypical sexual fantasies.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the mom and dad in this sitcom keep the laughs coming by butting heads and reining in their three unruly kids. While they portray a seemingly typical couple -- and the family's underlying relationships are strong -- they get away with a lot more sarcasm and fun-poking than the average husband and wife. Some stereotypical jokes about the lesbian couple that lives next door.
Is It Any Good?
Like many sitcoms of its ilk, such as According to Jim and Everybody Loves Raymond, Still Standing engages audiences by creating silly scenarios with a happy ending. Nothing really sets it apart from the crowd, but Still Standing is a lighthearted sitcom that older tweens and young teens will likely find entertaining -- though, in the era of reality TV, older teenage viewers will most likely be bored.
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.
