A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Sensitive topics like sexual harassment and rape are tapped as sources of humor (as when it's implied that a man is raped by a chimpanzee). The characters have sex with multiple partners, and at least one spends the evening with a female escort, who uses her sex appeal to tempt him to spend money on her.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Lots of innuendo (a woman mentions wanting a "stiff cocktail," for instance) and euphemisms for male genitalia. Plenty of kissing and some simulated sex, but nudity is limited to men's upper bodies. A fair amount of bed hopping as the main characters navigate the dating scene.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this sitcom about newly single adults was created by the Farrelly brothers -- the duo behind There's Something About Mary. Their typically raunchy content is toned down for TV, but it's still brimming with simulated sex and innuendo, as well as jokes based on mature topics like sexual harassment and rape. Also expect regular drinking, casual sex, strong language (like "damn" and "bitch"), and a generally exaggerated/unrealistic approach to what dating is really like.
Is It Any Good?
This amusing series lives up to the comic standards of its creators' previous hits while simultaneously toning down the over-the-top crassness the that may have bothered some viewers. Still, it's not a complete 180; the show has plenty of mature content, including simulated sex, regular drinking, and strong language.
Unhitched also gives an unrealistic impression of dating, often wildly exaggerating situations for humor's sake. All in all, the show is best suited for adults who can fully appreciate the comedy and relate to the characters' relationship woes. If your teens do tune in, remind them that the content is embellished for laughs and take the opportunity to discuss your family's rules on dating.
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.
