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.

The Sing-Off is a winner

Great show. A family favorite, although the stage costumes and song lyrics are sometimes sexually suggestive and/or explicit. Wouldn't recommend it without reservation to someone who avoids popular music for those reasons. Once or twice we have fast-forwarded through a particular song at our teenagers' insistence (they're more familiar with the music than I am!), because of inappropriate lyrics, but feel the show is excellent overall. I love the way the various groups set goals, work hard together, support eachother and, so far, demonstrate admirable sportsmanship whether they end up winners or losers. It's easy to want to "adopt" your favorite group, even if you never heard of them before the show.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
