Too many dumb (double entandre) jokes. Enough with the "laid" and "balls" and "hump" already!

Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The show mixes humor, history, and numbers to show how statistics can help us understand how America has changed over time, and how they can be used to predict future changes. It also demonstrates how important it is to understand the social and historical details about American society that results in the numbers collected.

It's fun and informative, but some folks may find the hosts' comedic style a little too strong for younger viewers. But overall the show offers a lot to think about, and those old enough to handle it will definitely find themselves learning something new and different.

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.
