A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Features dance and music from the urban underground culture. Presents a sense of urban pride. Various people of racial and ethnic backgrounds are portrayed, but usually not positively. Stereotyping is a frequent source of humor, but sometimes they're used to make a point. The cast is diverse.
Violence & Scariness
Simulated violent acts -- including shooting, explosions, and stoning -- in some sketches. Pushing, punching, and other physical harm, but there's little blood, and most of these events are clearly fake. Some skits feature various kinds of guns.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this sketch comedy show is not meant for kids. It more than earns its TV-MA rating with its frequent use of profanity and its graphic sexual content (including a close-up of a real-life vagina animated to look like it's talking). The show makes a concerted effort to be politically incorrect and, as a result, uses lots of stereotypes and other less-than-positive comedic devices -- which, although they're meant to underscore present-day political and social issues, lose their impact when sketches fall flat and shock rather than amuse.
Is It Any Good?
Unfortunately, the prevalence of obscene language, nudity, and simulated sex acts (many of them extremely crude) in most sketches makes the show's political satire and social commentary difficult to appreciate. Plus, when it comes right down to it, a lot of the skits just aren't that funny, bad taste or no. As a result, anything positive that the show has to offer, including the celebration of urban culture, is undermined by its attempts to cross the lines of taste and purposely offend people of all walks of life simply because it can. It also makes the show a bad choice for kids.
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.
