Why did fox take The Mick off the air?!?! smh

I thought this show was awesome. Yes, there is mild language and drinking during the show. References to drug use and sexare also present in some episodes. That’s why they tell the viewer about anything that may be inappropriate for younger viewers at the beginning of each episode and when returning from commercial breaks. It may not have been the most wholesome show on tv, but it was never billed as such. If you’re looking for some pretty hilarious shenanigans and don’t get offended every time someone on tv rips a fart, then I highly recommend The Mick. On the other hand if you’re way too uptight and have ever retreated to a “safe space” you may wanna stick to Little house on the prairie, or maybe The Walton’s. Oh, I will say this. The one thing I really don’t like that is found in this show is that Mickey smokes a lot. Not a fan of cigarettes.
