A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Some commentary about today's culture. Many jokes about people with disabilities and/or from other countries that could be construed as bigoted and/or racist.
Positive Role Models
Ross and his friends' humor -- which calls out people's specific foibles and makes fun of them -- isn't for everyone, but it's intended to be "all in good fun," and it's sometimes offered as a way of paying homage to other comedians.
Violence & Scariness
Humorous references to violent acts (like beating people up), but nothing is really visible. Child molestation is used as a source of humor.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Burn with Jeff Ross is a comedy show with lots of strong language (the strongest words are bleeped, but some -- like "d--k," "ass," and "bitch" aren't). and crude sexual references. The host's style of humor relies on making fun of other people for laughs and sometimes incorporates strong stereotypical comments, too. While the humor offers some social commentary, chances are that young and/or less mature viewers won't be able to extract this from what's being offered here.
Is It Any Good?
The Burn relies on roast-style comedy -- i.e. jokes that subject people, places, and things to lots of pointed comedic insults. While it's not designed to be taken too seriously, the fast-paced humor also reflects some of the current conversations in today's political and popular culture.
Ross' comedy style, which incorporates strong language, crude sexual references, and some rather stereotypical (bordering on bigoted) comments, isn't for everyone. But beneath it all is some clever, well-timed humor that occasionally offers social commentary about our culture and the icons who represent it. It's not for young kids, but adults who like this sort of comedy will probably find themselves chuckling.
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.
