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.

Loved it!

I loved it! There is no cursing, there are some sex refferences but little on screen sex. I think this show is ok for kids 13+.

Young and Hungry is definitely not for young kids!

Young and Hungry is an amazing comedy/romance show for teens. The show revolves around a lady who is a personal chef to a rich businessman. Though, expect to hear a few infrequent uses of cuss words such as "b---h", "damn," and "hell.". Also, expect sexual references and dialogue about pornograhy, masturbation, pregnancy, etc. Some scenes involve kissing, cuddiling, and "sex" (arms and up are shown under the covers). Some scenes involve drinking alcohol; and sometimes characters get “drunk”--done for comedic purposes. Though, the show brings the attention to young vieweres about the importance of friendship, stable relationships, and mistakes. Plus, the cast is pretty diverse which is pretty cool! The only thing that stopped me from putting five starts is that the show leaves off on a cliffhanger and it was never renewed for a new season.
