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.

I saw a few minutes of this show the other night and I was seriously appalled. It does play pretty late at night but kids are staying up later right now because school is out. I dont think anyone should watch this show especially teenagers, its just disgusting and it presents bad role models for kids.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
